He led a very interesting life, right from his childhood to his schooling and how he changed his skin color and all that, what he has been through. It’s a great journey and a great story. But who would be the right actor, that’s the question. That will be a dream and everybody will buy the ticket. Whoever directs it, I would buy the tickets and watch it because I want to know.”
