Earlier, it was reported that Ekta Kapoor would helm a biopic on Sourav Ganguly. To which, the cricketer said, “Is it, Ekta Kapoor? Then yes, she approached me and we talked about it once. Nothing went further than that. I have never thought of a biopic [on me] though there are a host of sports biopics being made. If there is time, then someone will make one on me. Hope people would be interested in seeing the film.”
Sourav Ganguly has previously said about the biopics in Bollywood, “I liked the MS Dhoni biopic, [M.S. Dhoni: The Untold Story]. Tendulkar’s biopic [Sachin A Billion Dreams] was a little different. Now we have a film on the 1983 World Cup-winning team. That will be huge and I will watch it. As far as my biopic is concerned, we will wait and see.”

. What a nice picture of myself. Reminds me of the wonder I had as a child , reminds me of the immense hope I had against the odds . Sometimes we all need to be reminded to hold in our hearts and mind that which we want most in our lives . If you walk in with fear and anger , you will find fear and anger , go into situations with what you want to find there. What you focus on , you become. Thank you whoever took this picture for reminding me today to keep that wonder and hope alive . 🙏🏻 needed that today
