Sonu Sood to play lead role in biopic on Dara Singh


Bollywood and South Indian film industry actor Sonu Sood is all set to play the lead role in a biopic on late Indian wrester-turned-actor Dara Singh.

A Punjab-based filmmaker has reportedly come up with a script on the life of Singh and has approached Sood to play the lead role.

According to reports, Sood was approached by the filmmaker last week and the film will go on floors by the end of this year. Sood confirms the story saying, “Yes, I was recently approached with the idea of a biopic on Dara Singh. I will read the script and take the final call.”

Sood was last seen in Shah Rukh Khan’s 2014 film ‘Happy New Year’ along with Deepika Padukone and Abhishek Bachchan.

Singh, who has to his credit one of the most exciting fights in the history of wrestling, passed away in 2012. Singh had once lifted the almost-200kg King Kong of Australia over his head and twirled him around. Later, Singh was also seen in films like ‘Dillagi’, ‘Ajooba’ and ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’.
