Biopics are the flavour of the season

Several biopics have been made in the last few years and there are many coming up in the near future. People seem to love the emotional quotient of biopics and filmmakers are cashing on this sentiment. We are eagerly awaiting Sanjay Dutt’s biopic this year. Saina Nehwal’s is in the pipeline and there are talks that there will be a Sridevi biopic too.

We have so many famous personalities with interesting lives in India that filmmakers will never run out of content. We strongly feel that Bollywood should give the following celebrities their biopics soon.

From Bollywood

1.  Amitabh Bachchan


– He struggled for ten years doing minor roles till he became a superstar

– After becoming a hated figure for his supposed involvement in Bofors deal he turned around the public view

– He started working overtime in both TV and films since 2000 because his family was going through a huge financial crisis. In his second innings as a senior actor and TV host he got stupendous success and not to mention, money too

– People love underdog stories and his life has three such stories. His biopic will be interesting even without any mention of a certain affair

Among the current actors, Ranbir Kapoor is quite passionate about his craft like Guru Dutt. Radhika Apte’s face has a certain old world quality which will make her apt to play Geeta Dutt. Sushant Singh Rajput and Bhumi Pednekar will be great as Dev Anand and Waheeda Rehman.
