It was discussed for a long time that Varun Dhawan will soon be seen playing hockey on screen. He was offered a biopic by legendary hockey player Major Dhyanchand. Varun also showed interest in the film. He was also very excited about this because Varun was going to work in a biopic for the first time, but now he has dropped out of the film directed by Abhishek Chaubey.
According to the report, Varun will no longer be a part of this film. Due to lack of dates, he had to leave this film. Producer Ronnie Screwvala wanted to start shooting for the film immediately after the lockdown, but Varun has already committed to several films. Varun loved the story, but it took a lot of time to prepare and shoot. Hence, Varun had to refuse for the film.
The discussion was that the rights of Major Dhyanchand’s biopic have been bought by Karan Johar. When Karan heard about the project, he immediately agreed to make it. Karan was supposed to make the film with Shah Rukh Khan, but the film was canned due to the post production time. After this Ronnie Screwvala bought the rights of the film and now he is going to make it on a very big scale.
In the world of sports, Dhyanchand is called Dadda. His birthday is celebrated as National Sports Day. Dhyanchand represented the Indian team from the years 1926 to 1948. He won the gold medal in 1928, 1932, 1936 Olympics. He played around 185 international matches and scored more than 400 goals.
