Well, it looks like fans of Sourav Ganguly and the sport cricket might be happy today. The former Indian captain has agreed to a biopic on him. Interestingly, reports have it that we will see Ranbir Kapoor as Sourav Ganguly. In fact, if that is not enough, the biopic is also likely to be a big-budget movie with a huge production house. (looks like we are talking Rs 200 – 250 crore)
While Ranbir is almost locked in, there are two more actors contending for a spot in the Sourav Ganguly biopic. Meanwhile, the script is in the works. Since Sourav has already given the nod, it is going to be announced sooner, and we bet fans of Dada can’t wait. The biopic will trace Ganguly’s journey up until right now, as the BCCI president. However, further details are still under the wraps right now. Interestingly, this is the first when Sourav has openly admitted to a biopic being in the works.
Sourav told News18: Yes, I have agreed to the biopic. It will be in Hindi but it is not possible to say the name of the director now. It will take a few more days for arranging everything.
Now that Ranbir Kapoor’s name for Sourav Ganguly biopic has cropped up, fans sure have a lot to say. While the announcement sure comes as a piece of happy news, there’s more information that we all wait to have.
Here’s what Twitter feels about Ranbir Kapoor in Sourav Ganguly’s biopic:

Meanwhile, biopics are rather common and draw a lot from real-life events. Sushant Singh Rajput’s MS Dhoni was an absolute hit. A documentary on Sachin Tendulkar, is also one of the most popular ones with cricket fans so far. Not to forget, we also have Ranveer Singh headlined ’83, coming soon. It will narrate the tale of the then Indian team captain, Kapil Dev.
