In the last few years, biopics have become the order of the day. Interestingly, most of them also make for great untold stories on celluloid. Several actors from the younger generation are now gearing up to play someone on screen. Shahid Kapoor has the rights to the biopic on Dingko Singh, Ranveer Singh plays Kapil Dev in '83 - the retelling of the 1983 World Cup victory for India and Parineeti Chopra will step into the shoes of ace badminton player Saina Nehwal. And now, Tiger Shroff too might follow suit. 

A source reveals, "Tiger has been approached for a biopic, which might also be his first. It's on the life of Indian footballer Bhaichung Bhutia. Anand Kumar, the director of Zila Ghaziabad, is putting the project together. They have offered the film to Tiger. It now needs to be seen if Tiger will be keen on taking this project up." Meanwhile, Tiger is wrapping up portions of his next film with YRF, co-starring Hrithik Roshan and will then move onto Baaghi 3. 

Given that Tiger has a history with the sport, he seems like a perfect fit for the role. "Tiger is a fantastic footballer himself. In fact, if he wasn't an actor, he would have taken to a career in the sport. So when Anand was looking at a popular face for the biopic, Tiger was his first and only choice. Tiger has liked the script but now, it's up to the dates and the schedules. The modalities need to be discussed before proceeding further," adds the source. 

Like other sports biopics Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story and Mary Kom, Bhaichung's story is also captivating and lesser known to the public. "The film will also trace how Bhaichung struggled to fulfill his dreams, his highs and lows and personal life as well. Nobody knows what went behind his supremely successful career and that's what the makers are planning to tap into."
