Imran Khan goes Bollywood?

After a string of successful biopics on sports personalities like Mary Kom, Milkha Singh & with MS Dhoni’s & Azhar’s biopics in the pipeline, a new development has surfaced for all Cricket lovers.

 A movie is being planned on Pakistan's cricket legend and politician Imran Khan.

Rakesh Upadhyay, the maker of Khiladi 786 and The Shaukeens, recently met the 'Kaptaan' (Captain) at his Bani Gala home to seek permission for the biopic.

Earlier, the producer's visit was misreported as a collaboration with the former cricketer's wife Reham Khan for a film.

But rubbishing the report Reham took to Twitter and wrote: "Misreporting alert: The Indian filmmaker wants to make a film on Imran Khan & came to discuss access."

From being the captain of Pakistan's 1992 world champion cricket team to becoming one of the most popular political figures in the country - Khan has always been an enigmatic figure.

Over the years - his divorce to British wife Jemima in 2004 after nine-year of marriage and secret wedding to former BBC weather girl of Pakistani origin Reham Khan - Imran has been the perfect fodder to tabloids.

His fight against corruption and subsequent anti-government rallies saw a rise to his political stature in Pakistan.


A film on the World Cup Winner Skipper and his eventful life is surely a blockbuster in the making, though which bollywood actor do you reckon could play the charming all rounder in this epic biopic.
