Tiger Shroff is currently riding high with the success of Student Of The Year 2. Despite getting bad reviews, the film has done quite well at the box office. Tiger already has YRF’s next and Baaghi 3 in his kitty. And now, here’s a report that will make his fans jump with joy. According to a report in Pinkvilla, Tiger Shroff has been approached to star in the footballer, Bhaichung Bhutia’s biopic.
A source said, “Tiger has been approached for a biopic, which might also be his first. It’s on the life of Indian footballer Bhaichung Bhutia. Anand Kumar, the director of Zila Ghaziabad, is putting the project together. They have offered the film to Tiger. It now needs to be seen if Tiger will be keen on taking this project up.”
“Tiger is a fantastic footballer himself. In fact, if he wasn’t an actor, he would have taken to a career in the sport. So when Anand was looking at a popular face for the biopic, Tiger was his first and only choice. Tiger has liked the script but now, it’s up to the dates and the schedules. The modalities need to be discussed before proceeding further,” added the source.
The movie will showcase the footballer’s journey and will capture the lesser known facts about him. The source said, “The film will also trace how Bhaichung struggled to fulfill his dreams, his highs and lows, and personal life as well. Nobody knows what went behind his supremely successful career and that’s what the makers are planning to tap into.”
