Yes, you heard the right! Though reports have been doing the rounds about SRK playing Dhyan Chand onscreen, the truth is he’s not…
In 2007, Shah Rukh Khan played a hockey coach in Shimit Amin’s Chak De! India and the film turned out to be a blockbuster. Five years later, rumours about King Khan playing legendary hockey player Dhyan Chand in a biopic started floating in the gossip world. While no official announcement was made regarding the same, it was being said that Khan was keen on doing the film. But looks like all this never really happened. Well, we say so coz SRK has rubbished all reports about him being approached for the much-talked about Dhyan Chand film.
While talking to a leading daily, Gauri Khan’s hubby dearest said, “Don’t believe what you read in the papers. I have also read that I am doing a film on Dhyan Chand.” In fact, Shah Rukh has not been offered the film at all. “I have never been offered a film on Dhyan Chand. I have been reading about it in the papers,” added the superstar.
Well, it’s sad that SRK won’t be stepping into Dhyan Chand’s shoes coz we all know the Happy New Year actor is a die-hard hockey fan and knows the game inside out as well. Would have been a visual delight to see him play hockey on 70mm, hai na?
