This Monday is a far cry away from anything blue. First, we got a confirmation that Ranveer Singh is going to play our beloved Kapil Dev in a biopic being helmed by Kabir Khan and now this.
After weeks of speculations that the film might get shelved, this news comes in as a huge relief.
It has been in the news for long that Hrithik Roshan is going to play Anand Kumar in the mathematician’s biopic being directed by Vikas Bahl. They’ve even met for discussions and posted pictures about the same. But soon… it looked like a dicey project. Not anymore!
The confirmation has come from the man himself. Anand Kumar told a leading daily, “I am happy that Hrithik will play me because he is the best choice for the role. His dedication towards his work and the kind of versatility he exhibits as an actor is very inspiring. Being a rooted and passionate person myself, I feel that he will bring an emotional depth to my life on screen. I am excited to see Hrithik as Anand Kumar essaying my emotional journey. I totally trust Vikas with my story and I am confident that he will make a sensible and heartfelt film about me and what I strive to do.”
