Who is playing ace-cricketer Sourav Ganguly for the bio-pic that Luv Ranjan is producing? Two names that are floating on the net are both misleading. Ranbir Kapoor who is a prominent name for Sourav Ganguly’s role is not interested in bio-pics.
A source in the know says, “Luv Ranjan who is currently directing Ranbir did mention the Sourav Ganguly biopic to the actor. But Ranbir didn’t show any interest. He is more into football than cricket. As for Parambrata Chatterjee, he isn’t even in consideration. The producers want an actor with a pan-India image. It’s surprising that Parambrata hasn’t issued a statement and is enjoying the unwarranted attention.”
In the meanwhile news comes that there is a possibility of the star-cricketer playing himself on screen.
“We can’t rule out the possibility of Souravda playing himself in the bio-pic. Who knows Sourav Ganguly better than Sourav Ganguly? However right now, the script is not even halfway ready. The producers will think of the casting only when the screenplay is ready. So all the names that you’re reading are fans of Dada doing their wishful thinking,” reveals a source close to the producers.
