The actor has already done two biopics and won everyone's hearts! This sure would be very interesting...
This year truly is the year of Akshay Kumar! Well, at least the first half has been all about him because in a year the actor has already delivered three films i.e. Airlift, Housefull 3, Rustom and they all have been blockbusters of the year! In fact, out of three of his recent releases, two have been biopics (well, they say based on true events but we believe they are all biopics)! And luckily, both of them have done stupendously at the box office. So we can safely say that Kumar is the real Khiladi of biopics!

One thing that even the Aussie cricketer, Glenn McGrath agrees! Because he just asked Kumar to be him if a biopic is ever made on him! In a recent interview, the 46 year old former cricketer revealed, "The other day, someone told me that a biopic should be made on me. Maybe (Hollywood star) Hugh Jackman can play me? He is an Aussie himself and loves cricket. But then, someone wanted a name from Bollywood. In that case, Akshay Kumar."
While he has expressed his wish to see Akshay in and as him in his biopic, he even states that the film won't be made anytime soon. He quoted the same as he said, "I am not sure if something like that will happen soon or in the future, but I am excited for Sachin’s biopic. He has got a great story and I am sure people not just in India, but around the world will be interested in watching a film on his life. He is such an inspirational figure."
With that said, it is a big time cue for filmmakers and the actor himself! Already we're having two biopics on cricketers I.e. that of Mahendra Singh Dhoni's MS Dhoni - The Untold Story and one on Sachin Tendulkar as well. Hence, with already such legendary sportsmen's lives are the focus of limelight, probably it is the right time to see through this Aussie cricketer's lens as well, who by the way, gave one heck of a time to Indian cricketers back in his glory days!

Currently the actor is shooting for Jolly LLB's sequel along with Huma Qureshi and is in high spirits for the same! The first schedule of the same has already been shot and for the second schedule, the cast landed in Lucknow. He even shared a picture from the station as he greeted Huma. Post his successful ventures in the recent past, Akshay has become quite the man of the hour. Every filmmaker wishes to collaborate with him and he is also signing a lot of hardhitting and human interest stories! Probably with McGrath's biopic, it'll be quite interesting to see how he unfolds this Australian cricketer's life!
