Interestingly, in a career spanning over 2 decades in the film industry now, we have never seen Hrithik Roshan trying his hands at the sports genre. Suddenly, thinking about the fact that it has been 17 YEARS since Roshan Jr. made his debut in Kaho Naa …. Pyaar Hai makes me feel a bit old now.
Coming back to the topic of Hrithik and his non-association with sports films, we bet that the actor must have been offered such roles during his career so far but never took off due to reasons that are best known to them. Since God knows when we feel that such a film must have become a part of his bucket list.
Now, as per our Khabri Keeda, Roshan will finally get to cross it off his bucket list as he has been roped in by Ronnie Screwvala to play the titular role in his next production venture, which will be a film revolving around the sport of Kabbadi. We still have to know as to who will be playing the female lead in the film and the person who will be directing it.
As per KK, we will probably get to see the first look of the film when the 5th season of Pro Kabaddi League kicks off on 25th of this month when U Mumba (The Mumbai-based Kabaddi team owned by Screwvala himself) will play their first match of the season against Jaipur Pink Panthers.
We are still to learn as to when the film will go on floors.
