We were the first ones to break this news that Saqib will be playing a cricketer's role in Rohit Dhawan's Dishoom.
A biopic on the life of Virat Kohli is still a far fetched plan as the cricketer is in no hurry of having a biopic made his life. Of course, with biopic, comes the need to have a perfect face that will suit that character. And the Dishoom casting has managed to get hold of an actor who very closely follows Virat's career. In fact, the actor himself is a big fan of the sport with a past of his own! Surely, this may have propelled the director to take him onboard for this project. Are you guys still wondering who it is? Its none other than Saqib Saleem! We were the first ones to break this news that Saqib will be playing a cricketer's role in Rohit Dhawan's Dishoom. His character is inspired from ace batsman, Virat Kohli!
Now he didn't divulge more on how this cricket element fits in the so called action packed Dishoom. But he did rave about Virat quite a lot. As he spoke of the passion he has for the sport as well as acting, this film definitely has both his interests come together. However, we were still stuck to the fact that he is a big time Virat fan. And hence we decided to play a little game with him called 'How Well Do You Know Virat'. Being such a sport, he agreed to the challenge. We asked him five questions post which, we are convinced that this dude is definitely a huge Virat fan. Don't believe us? Well, check you the video below and see for yourself as Saqib shoots back answers to all our questions!
