Another big announcement has been made today. Dhyan Chand biopic, which is undoubtedly one of the most ambitious project for any production house in India is finally happening after so many years.

1500+ goals, 3 Olympic gold medals, and a story of India’s pride…

Abhishek Chaubey, the director of films like Udta Punjab and Sonchiriya is on boards to direct this film. The starcast of the film is still under finalization. The biopic is reported to begin filming next year and is expected to release in 2022.
As the news of the film was made public, netizens started to recall the rumours of Shahrukh Khan playing Dhyan Chand in the film. As most of you know that Shahrukh is a very sports loving person and was a former athlete, so rumours about him playing the legend in the biopic is very obvious. But him doing this film now is kinda unsettling according to some. Who do you think will fit perfect as Dhyan Chand?
Whatever it is, the creators are very happy to collaborate and create this biopic. The film will be made and released under the banners of Ronnie Screwvala’s RSVP Movies and Blue Monkey Films. Rohit Vaid will might be writing the screenplay for this film.
