If not biopic, at least almost every biggie has done a sports film or is about to do one.
Shah Rukh Khan was a hockey coach, Akshay Kumar will turn a hockey player in Gold, Sushant Singh Rajput turned cricketer, Salman and Aamir too did sports films.
It’s time for football now, and it’s time for Ajay Devgn to be a part of one such film. Devgn will essay the titular character of one of India’s most famous hockey coaches, Syed Abdul Rahim.
The film’s official announcement was made on social media.
Amit Sharma will be directing this sports biopic. Speaking of the writers Saiwyn Quadri is known for his work in biopics like Mary Kom and Neerja. As for Ritesh Shah, he has written films like Airlift and Namaste London.
Boney Kapoor hopes that the film will change the way we look at football in India. If these reports are to be believed, Boney also believes having Ajay on board too will help them inspire many to take up football.
