In the past, several biopics have been made on some of the ace Indian sports personalities like MS Dhoni, Mary Kom, Milkha Singh, Paan Singh Tomar, and others. A couple of days ago, Kartik Aaryan also starred in the biographical sports drama film Chandu Champion, which showcases the life and struggles of India's first Paralympic gold medalist, Murlikant Petkar.

But have you ever thought which Bollywood actor would be perfect to play the role of Virat Kohli in his biopic? Well, Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik has some suggestions. Read on!

Dinesh Karthik thinks Ranbir Kapoor would be perfect for Virat Kohli’s biopic

Dinesh Karthik was recently featured in a video for Cricbuzz in which he spoke about India's upcoming Super 8 campaign at the T20 World Cup. The cricketer also shared his two cents on biopics of some of his co-players.

When quizzed which actor would be perfect to play the lead in Virat Kohli’s biopic, Karthik stated, “Ranbir Kapoor will do a good job." He added that he hopes RK can mimic the way Kohli plays cricket, which is quite an "important part." Dinesh expressed that he was saying this because he had not seen Ranbir play cricket so far.

For Shikhar Dhawan, Karthik feels that Akshay Kumar is the best choice. According to him, they have a great connection, and if Dhawan’s biopic is done by Kumar, "it will be a lot of fun." Looking at Suryakumar Yadav's comic sense, Paresh Rawal or Suniel Shetty are the ideal choices, according to Dinesh Karthik. “He enjoys" the Heera Pheri movies, so even SKY would love it if any of the two actors played his role.

Next up was Hardik Pandya and no one other than Ranveer Singh could match his swag. For Yuzvendra Chahal, Karthik could think of only one name and that is Rajpal Yadav. When it comes to Jasprit Bumrah, Rajkummar Rao is the match.

He also added that one of his favorite actors, Vijay Sethupathi, would be a perfect fit to play Rohit Sharma in his biopic. “I think he has a great comic sense but he can be serious as well. So, I think he’ll suit the role perfectly,” she reasoned.

Dinesh Karthik concluded by sharing that a lot of people say that he looks like Vikrant Massey. Maybe the 12th Fail star would ace his role in his biopic. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
