Hrithik to star as Ganguly?

Reports of a biopic on former Indian skipper and current president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Sourav Ganguly have been making the rounds for a few years name. It all started when Ganguly quipped Hrithik Roshan's name when asked which actor should headline his biopic. Earlier this year, it was also reported that Karan Johar is planning to back the movie based on Dada's life.

Now during an interaction with Neha Dhupia on her talk show, No Filter Neha, Sourav was asked what if Hrithik played his role in the biopic. To which the Prince of Calcutta stated, "But he’s got to get a body like me, first. A lot of people would say the way Hrithik’s body is, how good-looking he is, and how muscular he is, people would say ‘Aree, you’ll have to get a body like Hrithik’. But, Hrithik will have to get a body like me before he starts."

Earlier when Ganguly was asked about Ekta Kapoor eyeing to make a biopic on his life, he had said, "Is it, Ekta Kapoor? Then yes, she approached me and we talked about it once. Nothing went further than that. I have never thought of a biopic [on me] though there are a host of sports biopics being made. If there is time, then someone will make one on me. Hope people would be interested in seeing the film."
