It’s raining biopics in Bollywood. While ‘Paan Singh Tomar’ and ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ set up things nicely, ‘MS Dhoni’, ‘Mary Kom’ and ‘Dangal’ took the rage to a different level. There’s already one on Saina Nehwal and Sanjay Dutt in the pipeline. And now we hear, a biopic on the life of famous Indian wrestler Dalip Singh Rana aka Khali is being announced.
Dalip Singh Rana aka the great Khali who made India proud after he successfully made his way to the world of wrestling. His popularity wasn’t constraint till India only, coz after he entered WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and proved himself to be a strong contender, soon the Great Khali became a household name in the West as well.
So now, when Bollywood is all set to display his life journey on the silver screen, we were pretty excited to know the name of the actor, who would portray this ‘Pehlwaan’ on the big screen. And we are sure that even you can’t hold your excitement to decode the name.
After many successful sportspersons of India…
The audience will now get to know about Dalip Singh Rana’s journey of becoming the Great Khali.
His journey from being a policeman…
To being a popular wrestler his journey wouldn’t have been a child’s play for sure.
But a very few of his fans are aware of …
The road Khali travelled to become one of the renowned wrestlers in the history of world wrestling
When Bollywood has taken a step ahead to let the world know…
About the Great Khali’s life, let’s see who is that actor who nodded his head in agreement to live up the role of Dalip Singh Rana aka Khali on the silver screen
If sources are to be believed…
The on-screen Dhoni, i.e. Sushant Singh Rajput has principally agreed to play the role. Yes, you heard that right.
Sushant Singh Rajput is going to play the Great Khali.
However, it is only natural to think how Sushant will pull off Khali, as the monster stands about 7’1″ tall and weighs over 150 kgs. It is highly improbable any Indian actor can portray Khali without the heavy use of technology.
When Sushant played Dhoni…
What worked in Sushant’s favour during Dhoni was that he looked, walked and talked like MSD. Here, Sushant has no similarities with Khali when it comes to his body prototype and his height.
Pulling off a film on Khali is not an easy job for Sushant.

It isn’t easy to pull off Khali!
No hero in Bollywood will look convincing as The Great Khali, unless there’s CGI,” DNA quoted a trade analyst as saying.
We have seen such stuff before
Remember Anil Kapoor from ‘Badhayi ho Badhayi’? For the meantime, we can wait for an official confirmation from the actor. Just like other biopics, the movie on Khali’s life will narrate his journey from being a policeman to an internationally acclaimed wrestler.
