India’s talisman, Virat Kohli was asked about his thoughts on Sachin’s biopic. The Indian skipper, who is preparing for India’s Champions Trophy campaign in England, was quizzed about the biopic and also asked if he wanted to have a biopic of his own.
This what Kohli had to say,
”I think it was beautifully compiled and something which is going to be a massive massive success, especially in our country. People are going to really love it. (It) brings out all the emotions and it’s going to be a super success. I wish him all the best.”

And when asked about a possible biopic on his life,
Bhai main 28 ka hun abhi (I am just 28 years old).”
The Indian skipper had tactfully dodged that bullet, as several media personals were heard laughing over Kohli’s cheeky response.
While there is good chance that a film might be made on Kohli’s life, the Delhi batsman still has a very long way to go in his professional career. But maybe someday!
