Tiger Shroff might be seen playing the role of a footballer in Bhaichung Bhutia biopic


Bollywood heartthrob Tiger Shroff has always had a keen interest in football. The actor has been approached for the biopic of the celebrated footballer Bhaichung Bhutia. In the past few years the biopics have become a trend in Bollywood. Particularly the sports based biopics have become popular among the audience and have gained a lot of attention.

A recent report has said that the Tiger has been approached for a biopic that might also be his first and will be based on the life of the footballer Bhaichung Bhutia. Filmaker Anand Kumar, of Zila Ghaziabad fame is the one who is putting the project together. It is now to be seen if Tiger would be keen on taking up the project.

On the other hand the actor is wrapping up portions of his upcoming film with YRF which also stars Hrithik Roshan and will then move on to Baaghi 3. Given that Tiger has a personal interest in the sport, he seems like the perfect fit for the role. The actor is a footballer himself and if he was not an actor then he would have taken to a career in the sport. When the director was looking for a popular face, Tiger was his first and only choice.
