Bollywood is crazy about cricket, and now that’s official! After biographies of almost all the legendary cricketers like Azhar, Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni now another legend will be in silver screen, and the name is Kapil Dev. Yes, there is a news that a movie on Kapil Dev will be made. Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor has been approached for the role and as per the news he is keen to do the movie, but he has not confirmed yet and will wait till the narration session, and if he finds no fault with the plot, then he will take it. One of a reliable source said: “It’s true that Arjun has been offered the role. He will sit for a narration and then decide whether he will take it up.”
But this movie will not be the typical biopic that focuses on the character and journey. On the contrary, this movie will focus on the 1983 World Cup where India was victorious and how Kapil, the captain lead the team to triumph.
Due to some reason, Bollywood is obsessed with the cricketers like the entire country. Though ‘Azhar’ could not create any magic on screen, in spiteof the fact that, the plot had lots of potentials. But still Bollywood shows no sign to be affected by it. The next two movies on Cricket will be the biopic of Dhoni and Sushant Singh Rajput will play the lead. Another release is a documentary based on Sachin Tendulkar’s life, which is inspired by his autobiography.
But right now Arjun is busy with his upcoming venture ‘Half Girlfriend,’ which is an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name. After that, he has in line ‘Mubarakan’ soon, and he will soon start shooting for that. He really seems so busy!
