Shahrukh Khan is likely to play the role
of the legendary Hockey player Dhyan Chand on the big
screen. Actor Abhishek Bachchan expressed
his opinion and said that he would love to watch SRK playing Hockey
on the big screen.
Abhishek Bachchan was quoted, "A sportsman whose life will be
fantastic on screen is Major Dhyan Chand. It will be an
unbelievable story. These are the stories that need to be told. I
told Shah Rukh Khan to make a film on it and play the protagonist,
because he looks a lot like him."
Reports were that some filmmakers are working on the biopic of
Major Dhyan Chand and Shahrukh was also approached for the role,
but no official announcement was made.
Biopic on the Olympian Milkha Singh titled as Bhaag Milkha
Bhaag received overwhelming response which released last year.
Actress Priyanka Chopra is playing the role of
Olympian boxer Mary Kom in the upcoming biopic which will hit
theatres on September 5.
For the first time, Abhishek Bachchan will share the screen
space with Shahukh Khan in the film Happy New Year which
is directed by Farah Khan.
