A few days ago, there were reports that Ranbir is all set to play the role of Sourav Ganguly in his biopic.
He has been locked in for the titular role and the shooting of the film will begin soon as Ganguly has given the nod to the script.
According to sources, the other actors have not been finalised by the makers yet.
It has also been reported that cricketer MS Dhoni will also play a small role in the biopic.
However, nothing has been confirmed or officially announced by the makers yet.
In 2021, Ganguly confirmed that a biopic on his life was under development.
He also confirmed the news on social media with the caption: “Let’s get this ball rolling.”
Recently, Sourav Ganguly was in Mumbai and during his visit, he confirmed that he was writing the script.
He said: “I will be in Mumbai for several works. There are discussions regarding the script of the biopic. I am writing the script myself.
“The screenplay will be discussed with Luv Production House.
“For several months, the work of making the biopic did not progress much.”
“In fact, due to my and the production house’s tight schedule, the work was not picking up pace. This time, it will be done quickly.”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Ranbir Kapoor also has the release of Animal in his pipeline.
The film also stars Rashmika Mandanna.
