Biopics are in trends. Recently biopics on renowned personalities from different fields were made. Biopics like Mary Kom, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Neerja, Thackeray, Manto and others were highly appreciated by fans. And now reports are that Shahid Kapoor can play North-East boxing champion Ngangom Dingko Singh in his biopic.
The film will be directed by Raja Krishna Menon and the shooting was supposed to start in January, but it is said that it will now start in second half of 2019.
According to a report of Mumbai Mirror, Shahid will not just step into Dingko Singh’s role but will also produce the film. The report also stated that Shahid has the rights to Dingko Singh’s story and he got Raja Krishna to helm it.
“Now, they have joined hands to produce the film. It will be shot primarily in Manipur, besides Delhi, while an international schedule is also being planned," the report of Mumbai Mirror source said.
Earlier talking about the film, Shahid in an interview with Hindustan Times said, “I feel the thing with biopic is that looking exactly like a person makes it caricature-ish.”
