Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar feels its up to the people to decide if his biopic should be made or not. He, however, wishes to see Salman Khan reprise his role if a film based on his real life story is made. ‘Fans and Filmmakers have to decide if my life is interesting and inspiring. If it happens, I would like to see Salman Khan play my part in the biopic,’ opines the ‘Rawalpindi Express’.
In the past few years, Bollywood Filmmakers began focusing more on biopics or films based on real-life incidents. Especially, Sports Films such as ‘Bhaag Mikha Bhaag’, ‘Mary Kom’ and ‘Azhar’ have done pretty well at Box Office. Even Aamir Khan’s ‘Dangal’ is a biopic of a popular Wrestler.
Akhtar preferring Salman Khan makes sense as the Bollywood Superstar is a crowd puller in Pakistan as well. His recent release ‘Sultan’ collected Rs 12 crore already in the neighboring country.
Shoaib Akhtar was the fastest bowler in World cricket when he made his International debut. He has given nightmares to many Worldclass batsman with his rocket deliveries.
