Rajkumar Hirani planning a biopic on this Indian cricketer 

Brilliant filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani is currently working on his Shahrukh Khan starrer film 'Dunki' and the audience is excited witness the first collaboration between these two stalwarts. However, it was recently reported that Hirani also has plans for a biopic on legendary Indian cricketer Lala Amarnath and he even offered the script to Shahrukh who then chose to do 'Dunki' instead.

A source close to the development told news portal Peeping Moon, "Rajkumar Hirani has been planning a biopic on Lala Amarnath since 2019. In fact, it was one of the two scripts he had offered to SRK, but the superstar chose Dunki, and the biopic was put on hold for the time being. After Dunki’s release, Hirani wants to revive the Lala Amarnath biopic and has asked his writing team to finish the script by the year's end. It’s a story Hirani has been very passionate about and is committed to starting work on it right after Dunki is out of his system."

Sharing more about the project, the source added, "Lala Amarnath’s biopic is not a typical sports biopic. Hirani will tell his story in his usual entertaining way, beautifully highlighting Lala’s career, his spasmodic brilliance, and his enduring influence on Indian cricket. An A-list young star is expected to star in this film; however, the director will finalize someone only after he is done with Dunki’s shooting."

Shahrukh is currently enjoying the amazing box office run of 'Pathaan' and post that he will also be seen in Atlee's 'Jawaan'.
