It looks like biopics and documentaries on cricketers are the latest trend in the town.

After movies were made on the lives of MS Dhoni and Mohammad Azharuddin and also Sachin Tendulkar, the latest to join them is Indian legend Rahul Dravid.

Sachin’s is titled ‘Sachin: A Billion Dreams’, Dhoni’s is called ‘M.S. Dhoni- The Untold Story’ and Azhar’s is ‘Azhar’.
According to Mumbai-based stand-up comedy group All India Bakchod, there is another one coming soon to a theatre near you – on Rahul Dravid.

The stand-up comedy group has released a poster of the ‘proposed’ movie with the phrase: The untold story of the unsung hero in the unwatched movie’.

Well, the poster indicates the fact that Dravid never got the attention that he deserved. Dravid remained in the shadows of other stalwarts throughout his career. His 95 on debut in Lords was overshadowed by another debutant, Sourav Ganguly’s century, his 181 in the iconic Eden test of 2001 was again overshadowed by a brilliant innings by VVS Laxman. He was labelled as a test specialist but proving everyone wrong he is the seventh-highest ODI run-getter of all time. The luck deserted him in ODIs too. His first century came in the game that Saeed Anwar scored 194. His two highest ODI scores came in matches that Sachin Tendulkar and Ganguly came close to the then-elusive ODI double-hundred. He even opened the innings 21 times, managing a match-winning century in Jamaica from that position. His captaincy is remembered for the 2007 World Cup debacle, and not for India’s success rate under him, which is second only to MS Dhoni’s team. Despite being the backbone of Indian cricket for over a decade he failed to hog the limelight.

 

Well, one can say that fans will be eagerly waiting for this biopic.

The former cricketer was recently involved as the head coach of the Indian U19 team that made it to the finals of the ICC U19 World Cup. Currently, he is associated with the Delhi Daredevils in the IPL as their mentor.
