Karan tweeted, “My friends Pooja...Aarti Shetty and I are honoured and proud to have the rights to tell the story of the legendary sportsman #DHYANCHAND...” However, Johar didn't divulge in more details but sources suggest that the film will be made by Manmohan Shetty's daughter Pooja Shetty.

According to reports, Shah Rukh Khan and Ranbir Kapoor have been approached for this role, but the filmmakers haven't heard from them for a while now.

After Priyanka Chopra’s Mary Kom and Sushant Singh Rajput‘s still-in-production MS Dhoni biopic, this would be the third biopic to look out for this year.


Dhyan Chand, who died in 1979, was a three-time Olympic gold medal winner and was widely popular as ‘The Wizard’ due to his control on the ball.
