Biopics are all the rage right now. Luv Ranjan recently revealed that he will produce the biopic of Indian cricket legend Sourav Ganguly. According to a source in the industry, before Dada, ace producer Karan Johar was working on a biography on Yuvraj Singh.
“Yuvraj Singh’s life is a roller coaster – right from the highs, lows and his fight with cancer. Hence, Karan was keen on making a biopic. He had multiple meetings with Yuvraj and his team and was on the verge of buying the rights. The producer was all set to get the current sensation, Siddhant Chaturvedi on board to play the lead, as his face structure resembles that of Yuvraj,” a source informed Bollywood Hungama.
The source added, “However, Yuvraj was clear that his story should have a top A LIST star. He suggested two names – Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor – however, Karan felt that the story needed a relatively new face, who could give requisite time for character prep. He also felt that Yuvraj himself was a national icon and his story would do well irrespective of star-cast.”
They eventually decided to part ways since they were not on the same page when it came to casting. We’re curious as to what will happen with the Yuvi biography now.
