Sushant Singh Rajput to step into wrestler Khali's big shoes for his biopic?

Sushant Singh Rajput to step into wrestler Khali's big shoes for his biopic?
After breathing life into cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni's story on the big screen , actor Sushant Singh Rajput will now bring to the big screen the incredible story of Indian wrestler Khali.

Bollywood is going big on biopic. And this time, it's the story of Dalip Singh Rana, better known as Khali will make it to the 70mm. Buzz has it that makers have approached Sushant Singh Rajput for the biopic, and apparently, the actor has given his nod to the film.

A source told DNA, "he biopic is on the life of wrestler Dalip Singh Rana, better known as Khali or The Great Khali in WWE circle. The studio has spoken to the Punjabi wrestler and he has given them the rights to make a film on his life. Sushant has been approached to play the titular role and he has in principle agreed to do the film."

Just like MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, the biopic on Khali too will focus on his life away from the public eye. And the film will be about his joruney from being Punjab state police officer to a WWE wrestler.

"People only know about the sporty side of this Indian-born American semi-retired professional wrestler, promoter and actor. But there's an untold story behind his super success. He was an officer for the Punjab state police and struggled for years before making it big in wrestling. The story will be about his journey," added the source.

However, it is difficult to think Sushant as Khali as the actor has no resemblance to the wrestler. It was easy for him to pull off Dhoni biopic as he had a few similarities. But  pulling off a Khali would be difficult for the 31-year-old actor. However, only time will tell if Sushant is able to fit into Khali's shoes or not.
