Biopic on Kapil Dev also coming from Bollywood; Who will play Kapil Dev in it?
It seems that now-a-days our film makers had formed a special liking towards the genre of biopic. We had already seen biopics on Cricket players like Muhammad Azharudheen and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Emran Hashmi played Azhar and Sushant Singh Rajput had played Dhoni in movies. In Kerala too, a biopic is coming based on the life of Footballer VP Sathyan. Jayasurya will play the lead in it. A Biopic on God of Cricket Sachin, will hit the screens in 2017 and the teaser of the film is already out. Sachin himself acting in it as well. Now a report coming in that the life story of world cup winning Indian Cricket team Captain Kapil Dev will become a movie. The movie is in its pre-production stage now as per reports and it says that Bollywood Actor Arjun Kapoor has been approached to play the character of Kapil Dev in it. Arjun is not yet given his dates for the movie as he is busy with projects like Half Girl Friend and Mubarakan.
We saw biopics like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Mary Com as well from Bollywood last year. Kapil Dev’s biopic is said to be focusing more on his world cup triumph than his personal life. Anyway, more reports about this project are expected to come soon if everything goes well.
