Ever since the rave reviews and insane earnings of the Aamir Khan starring Dangal, Bollywood seems to have caught the biopic fever. So, here are some of the most awaited biopics of 2017 and the actors who will be starring in them. (P.S. I am super hyped about them, so I just might fan girl a bit!)
Daddy stars Arjun Rampal as the Arun Gawli, a notorious gangster of the yesteryears. Arjun Rampal has done quite a lot of films over the years however, none of them have been big hits or gotten him the kind of fame he deserves. Fingers crossed that this will be the one elusive hit of his career.
2. SANJAY DUTT BIOPIC
Sanjay Dutt, the quintessential controversial figure of the industry deserved a biopic a long time ago. Well better late than never and we are getting one this year (hopefully). Ranbir Kapoor is slated to play the role of Sanju Baba. After so many hits and misses over the last year, let’s hope that this one is a hit.
3. SAADAT HASAN MANTO
Nawazuddin Siddiqui will star in the biopic of the legendary Pakistani writer, Saadat Hasan Manto’s biopic. He has been in a number of great movies in the past giving amazing performances, most notably in Raees, Manjhi and Badlapur. Here’s to us hoping and hoping that he would carry on the good work.
4. HASEENA PARKAR
The biopic of the Queen of Mumbai, the sister of Dawood Ibrahim is slated to release next year. This movie will star Sharddha Kapoor in the lead role while her real life brother, Siddhant Kapoor will play the role of her on screen brother, Dawood Ibrahim. From the looks of the cast, expectations aren’t too high but as we all know, we should never judge a book by its cover.
