After MS Dhoni, now a biopic on Dinesh Karthik on the cards?
In Bollywood, we have seen biopics like M.S. Dhoni – The Untold Story, Sanju, Neerja, Manikarnika: The Queen Of Jhansi, Haseena Parkar, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Azhar and others. Now if reports are to be believed, we will get to see one more biopic on the big screen and that too of a cricketer. We are talking about Dinesh Karthik. Reportedly, the biopic will focus on his fantastic performance against Bangladesh in Nidahas Trophy final last year. Team India started on a good note in the match, but later they fell flat.
The team needed 34 runs from 12 balls and then in the 19th over, Karthik made 22 runs. In the last ball, the team needed five runs and Karthik hit a six making it one of the of the most incredible finishes in the history of T20I. It is said that the paperwork for the biopic has already been done, and the official announcement will happen soon. Now we all would like to know who will be seen as Dinesh Karthik in the film. So, reportedly, Vikrant Massey, known for his roles in films like Lootera, A Death In The Gunj and Lipstick Under My Burkha, has been roped in to play the lead role.
