"I know Ranbir Kapoor plays the game a bit. He used to play in Khar Gymkhana, Bombay (Mumbai). So, someone like Ranbir Kapoor can actually pull off a great job playing me on screen. He is very intense also as we have seen him in Rockstar," he said.

The ace cueist also lavished praise on Bollywood director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra for making 'Bhaag Milkha Bhaag', a film based on the life of sprint legend Milkha Singh.
"It is great that a movie like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag was made, which portrayed the character of Milkha Singh in depth," he said.
He also praised the effort put in by actor Farhan Akhtar, who played Milkha Singh's character in the film.
"All actors would not be able to do that. Not everyone is a Farhan Akhtar. I mean his job was absolutely brilliant," he added.
Cautioning against herd mentality, Advani said, "In India, we follow the herd mentality. Something it works – when the league works, multiple sporting leagues are happening and if a movie works then everyone wants to make a movie on top sports persons."

Talking about about his sport and the upcoming World Billiards Championship starting from 20th October, Advani said he has been preparing and working hard as it is the biggest tournament.
"It is the biggest tournament in billiards. So, I have been preparing and working hard. I am looking forward to it and I am excited," he said.
