Bollywood is very big on following trends. Once a formula for a film becomes a superhit, film-makers all over Bollywood want to encash on the same subject or theme. For now, biopics seem to be the order and many film-makers have interesting biopics lined up for this year and early next year. One of them is supposed to star Shahid Kapoor as the North-East boxing champion, Ngangom Dingko Singh. The biopic will be directed by Raja Krishna Menon and will have Shahid stepping into the shoes of the 1998 Asiad Gold medalist. 

However, there was a lot of buzz as to when the shooting of the film would start shooting. For a film related to a real-life boxing champion, Shahid will need a lot of training to ace the role of the gold medalist. But, as of now, the shooting is nowhere near as Shahid is busy with his upcoming film Kabir Singh. He spoke to DNA about the Dingko Singh biopic and said, “There’s only Kabir Singh that I’m concentrating on right now. There’s nothing else that has been finalised as of now.”

Meanwhile, when the news about Shahid Kapoor playing the role of the boxing champion from North-East came out, many took to Twitter to express their displeasure and questioned why no North-Eastern actor was the lead. However, even then, Shahid addressed the response of the Twitterati and expressed his opinion on the same. He said to HT, “I feel, the thing with biopic is that looking exactly like a person makes it caricature-ish.”



Loving it. #kabirsingh
