SRK to play IPL man Lalit Modi


If things fall in right place you would soon see Bollywood of Baadshah playing the role of Mastermind of IPL Lalit Modi.

The flick will be called The Commissioner and will show Lalit’s childhood his struggle and his success as IPL’s chei.

Managing director, Shailendra Singh says, Lalit is an intriguing person. He made the IPL a phenomenon and multiplied the BCCL’s income by hundred in one year. We spent a year researching his life and now we know more about him than the man does about himself.”

Bollywood movies based on cricket, like Lagaan and Jannat, have been successful. The combination of Bollywood and cricket makes for a potent story and I’m sure the youth of India would love to know more about the man behind the IPL success story.We’re here to entertain, so it will be a fictionalised biopic. We’re following the lines of Guru, the movie based on the life of Dhirubhai Ambani,”

Shailender wants SRK to portray Lalit, he says, “I’d like to have Shah Rukh Khan for the lead role, as both men are dynamic and have high energy levels. They have similar personalities. Shahid Kapoor or Irffan Khan are also suitable for the lead role. While Irrfan is a complete contrast to Lalit’s personality, he is an intense actor and will be able to carry off the role well.”

Let’s see if this flick will rock like IPL.
