After Farhan Akhtar as ace athlete Milkha Singh and Priyanka Chopra as boxing Olympic medallist Mary Kom, Bollywood’s action star Akshay Kumar could well be on his way to essay late wrestler-actor Dara Singh. Dara Singh’s son Vindoo says he has been approached by director Rohit Jugraj for the project.
‘Yes, Rohit Jugraj has approached me to make a film on my father’s life. Akshay Kumar is the one chosen to play my father in this project. However, Akshay would need time to bulk up,’ he said.
But now the project will take off.
Interestingly, there is another Dara Singh biopic in the pipeline. This one is in Punjabi.
‘Yes I’ve been approached by the producers of Jatt & Juliet with a Punjabi film where they want Sangram Singh to play my dad. Let’s see which one materialises first,’ said Vindoo.
