VVS Laxman wants Mahesh Babu to act in his biopic!
Over the last few years, Indian cinema has seen a real surge in biopics, particularly that of sportspersons. The life stories of icons like Milkha Singh, Mary Kom and the Phogat sisters have been well received. When it comes to cricketers, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Mohammed Azharuddin have already got films made based on their life. In a recent candid chat with former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman was asked about which actor he would prefer to see in his biopic.
Laxman replied that he would love to see Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu to essay his role if his biography, ‘281 And Beyond’, is ever made as a feature film. The Hyderabad-based legendary batsman is said to be a big fan of Mahesh Babu. Last year, during the release of the star’s film ‘Maharshi’, Laxman took to his social handle to shower praises on the socially relevant entertainer. He also rated Mahesh Babu’s performance as a powerful one.
It will be interesting to see if a top-rated star like Mahesh Babu signs the biopic and bring to screen the life of one of India’s greatest red ball cricketers ever.
