If rumours are to be believed, the Queen of silver screen, Ekta Kapoor is now planning to produce a biopic. Following the latest trend in Bollywood, she would like to make a biopic on former cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin’s life.
Sources close to the producer, Ekta kapoor say that she has already started working on the project. The movie will take us through the life of the cricketer-turned-politician whose life was turned upside down in the 2000 match fixing scandal.
The Hyderabadi cricketer, who has played 99 Tests and over 300 ODIs, is considered one of the most stylish batsmen the game has ever seen. And so, the actor who would be portraying his role must be as stylish as the man himself. Another rumour in the grapevine says that the producer has shortlisted three actors – Saif Ali Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh. Wow!
Though Ekta Kapoor is yet to go on record about the project, a source close to her says,”Till the time we don’t formalise things we would not like to say anything at the moment,”. ok, they didn’t confirm the project. But they didn’t deny it as well!
The movie, if being made will go on floors this year as the multi talented Ekta has already signed a contract with Azharuddin and has acquired the rights for his biopic.
