Farhan is keen to make and feature in the film on cricket legend

 Farhan Akhtar had expressed his desire of making biopic on some of the legends of cricket in the past, though he recently denied the buzz that he is making one on Bishan Singh Bedi. However rumours suggest that the actor is keen to make one on Kapil Dev. A source says, “Farhan has expressed his desire in the past of making one more biopic. In fact he likes Kapil and is a fan of the cricketer. He also wishes to play him on screen, even though some of his friends think his features do not match with Kapil. But whether Farhan will actually go ahead with this idea or not that is yet to be confirmed.”

 In the past Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan was supposed to make a film on India’s World Cup victory in 1983. He had written a script but later he could not direct as he was said to be busy with his next film Chanda Mama Door Ke. Later it was reported that Kabir Khan will direct the film and Phantom films will produce it. Kabir recently confessed that he is fascinated with the story of 83’s Cricket World Cup but he did not reveal details about the film. It was said that Arjun Kapoor was going to play Kapil Dev in the film but no official announcement on the casting has been made as of now.
