The biopic is being developed under a huge banner-production house, according to reports, with a budget of roughly Rs 200 to Rs 250 crore set aside for the project.
“Yes, I have agreed to the biopic. It will be in Hindi but it is not possible to say the name of the director now. It will take few more days for arranging everything,” Sourav Ganguly told News18.
The script is still being written, according to sources. Sourav Ganguly has met with the production house several times. Ranbir Kapoor is the “hot choice” for the role of Dada, and his casting is almost complete.
