New Delhi: Attention cricket lovers, a flick is reportedly being planned on the life of legendary cricketer Kapil Dev and Bollywood heartthrob Arjun Kapoor is likely to play its lead character. Yes, you read that right. The 31-year-old actor might be flaunting his cricketing moves on the silver screen soon.
“It’s not entirely a film on Kapil’s life, so to say. It’s more about the 1983 World Cup where India was victorious and how Kapil, the captain lead the team to triumph. But there will be flashes of his life too but that won’t be the epicentre of the film," DNA quoted a source as saying.
It added, "it’s true that Arjun has been offered the role. He will sit for a narration and then decide whether he will take it up.”
In the recent past, we have seen movies based on the lives of sports persons like Milkha Singh, Mary Kom, Mohammad Azharuddin and Paan Singh Tomar. Also, a film on World Cup winning cricketer MS Dhoni is already under the post-production.
