With an array of films being made on real life heroes such as Paan Singh Tomar and Milkha Singh, next in line is a project based on the life of the legendary Indian hockey player, Dhyan Chand.
And who other than King Khan - after his commercially and critically successful stint in Chak De India – would be looked up to for portraying the character? Shahrukh Khan is indeed the top preference for this coveted role, after his inspiring enactment of the women's team hockey coach previously.
If things go as planned, Khan will have the honour of portraying onscreen, the Golden Man who defines the glory of Indian Hockey, in this yet untitled project.
Will this trend of playing a celebrated real life hero turn tables for SRK's career once again?!
