Bollywood sports biopics are in trend these days. First it was Irfan Khan who played ‘Pan Singh Tomar’ in a film; then Farhan Akhtar playing famous athlete Milkha Singh in a movie named ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’, then it was actress Priyanka Chopra’s turn to play the role of a celebrated Indian female boxer MC Mary Kom in a film titled ‘Mary Kom’ and now we hear actor Abhishek Bachchan is planning a biopic on the life of Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh.
If things go as planned then this would be the second biopic movie based on cricketer’s life as Sushant Singh Rajput starrer biopic on Indian cricket team’s captain cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s life is already in production.
