The Balaji head honcho has bought the rights to make a biopic on one of the best captains of the Indian cricket
That Ekta Kapoor is planning to make a film based on the life of cricketer Mohammed Azharuddin is a stale fact. But things were stuck because Balaji head honcho was reportedly, not getting the rights to make the biopic.However, now we hear that Ekta has finally got the rights to make the film on Azhar’s life. That’s not all! The two also met on Monday (January 27) to finalise the film, which will be directed by Kunal Deshmukh.
Now we are really looking forward to this biopic. After all, Azhar has had quite an eventful life, na? A life ban on playing cricket, a divorce with his wife Naureen, a second marriage with Salman Khan’s ex-flame Sangeeta Bijlani followed by a separation 14 years later and the tragic demise of his 19-year-old son in a bike accident. Now we hope that Ekta is able to do justice to this cricket legend. After all, he is one of the few people in the world of cricket, who’s worshipped by many.
There are many biopics which are being made currently, including a biopic on Mary Kom, which has Priyanka Chopra portraying the character of the woman wrestler. Then there is a film based on the life of Sarabjit Singh. But we must say, Ekta Kapoor’s biopic on Mohammed Azharuddin tops our watch list. Hai na BollywoodLifers?
