Mumbai: If one believed that only cinema and cricket were equally popular in India, then it’s time to change the perception.
Other sports besides cricket, of late, are getting the much-needed and deserved attention. Bollywood’s effort in telling the tale of legendary sportspersons, is certainly worth a mention.
After ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Mary Kom’, Hindi Cinema gears up to unfold the life and times of Hockey legend Dhyan Chand.
The legendary sportsman won three Olympic Gold medals for the country and had scored over 400 goals during his career as a Hockey player.
Here’s how Karan Johar took to Twitter to break the news:
My friends Pooja...Aarti Shetty and I are honoured and proud to have the rights to tell the story of the legendary sportsman #DHYANCHAND...

And now it would be interesting to see, who will be roped in to play Dhyan Chand, the Wizard.
Who according to you should essay the role of the Hockey legend?
