Ranbir Kapoor Approached To Play Lead Role In Yuvraj Singh’s Biopic
Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor has been reportedly approached to play the lead role in Yuvraj Singh’s biographical film.
The last one year or so has seen several biopics being made on sportsperson’s lives including that of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh, it seems, is the latest cricketer to join the list. Dhoni’s biopic was a huge hit and there is absolutely no doubt that if a movie is made on Yuvraj, it’ll be a huge hit too.
From scoring 84 against an all-conquering Australian team in his first innings to hitting six sixes to starring in two victorious World Cup campaigns and last but not the least, making a miraculous comeback to the cricket ground after recovering from cancer, his life story has all the ingredients to become an ideal Bollywood film.
And now a source, who is close to the Ranbir Kapoor camp, has revealed that the actor has received the offer to play the role of the World Cup-winning star.
“Yes, I can confirm that Ranbir has received these offers, but he has not taken a call on either. Let’s see what happens in the future.”
Meanwhile, the Bollywood star had previously expressed his desire of playing Yuvraj’s character in his biopic.
“Like I mentioned earlier, Yuvraj Singh. I think he has had an interesting story,” he told StarSports while promoting his movie in October last year.
However, it will interesting to see Yuvraj’s reaction to this news as the India batsman had said he wanted Akshay Kumar to play his character.
“Well I don’t know who relates to me the best but as a Punjabi boy I think Akshay fits in that category,” he had said when asked about the actor he wanted to see play his role.
Further, he had said he was still unsure of a biopic being made on his life during his playing career.
“Biopic is very personal. I am not sure if I would like to go for it…someday when I decide to hang my boots and sit on it, I may(think about it)…not at the moment…,” he concluded.
