Sourav Ganguly verified the story in an interview with News 18 Bangla. Sourav explained, “Yes, I’m on board with the biopic. It will be in Hindi, but the director’s identity cannot be revealed at this time. Everything will need some more time to be completed.”

The film’s screenplay is currently being written, according to press reports. Sourav Ganguly has met with the production house several times. According to sources, the production firm has also chosen the actor who would play Sourav Ganguly on screen. According to reports, Ranbir Kapoor is the frontrunner for the part. There are two additional actors that are being considered.

When Neha Dhupia previously stated that Hrithik Roshan would be the ideal candidate to represent Sourav Ganguly on television, the former cricketer responded, “But first, he needs to find a body like mine. Many people would remark, “Aree, you’ll have to have a physique like Hrithik,” referring to Hrithik’s figure, how good-looking he is, and how strong he is. Hrithik, on the other hand, will need to have a body like mine before he can begin.”

While the film’s screenplay is still being developed, sources indicate that it would depict Sourav Ganguly’s whole career. The film will cover all aspects of Sourav Ganguly’s life, from his days as a child cricketer to being the captain of the Indian National team to his historic triumph at Lord’s and eventually becoming the president of the BCCI.
