Biopics are a new trend in Bollywood and sports veterans have been an integral part of it. From Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Mary Kom, M.S. Dhoni to the upcoming Saina Nehwal biopic & Ranveer Singh’s ’83 – there’s a lot in the store to look forward to. Now, Tiger Shroff might be a part of the club as latest reports suggest the Student Of The Year 2 actor has been approached for Indian Footballer Bhaichung Bhutia’s biopic.
A source close to an entertainment portal, Pinkvilla, states the same as, “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.”
Moreover, Tiger will be the apt choice for the project as the actor has always been a fan of Football. “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,” adds the source.
Let’s see whether Tiger will give his nod for the project amidst his choc-o-bloc schedule, but if he does – it’ll be super exciting to look forward to! Meanwhile, the actor is currently working on YRF’s next alongside Hrithik Roshan and has Rambo remake and Baaghi 3 in the pipeline.
