Sourav Ganguly is one of the most revered and respected cricketers in the country, and also in the world. He wasn't only one of the most successful captains of the Indian Cricket Team, but also known for his camaraderie with his teammates, especially Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar. This was arguably the most memorable time of Indian Cricket.

And now, given his journey has been full of ups and downs, highs and lows, and some unforgettable moments, yes, we are talking about the NatWest Series 2002, when Dada, as he's fondly addressed, took off his shirt to celebrate his team's victory. So who wouldn't want to make a film on his life? And the filmmaker who has shown keen interest is Karan Johar.

Mumbai Mirror reports Johar headed to the BCCI office to meet the cricketer and talks about a potential film have begun. It would be interesting to see who plays Dada on the big screen. Who do you think would be the apt choice? Well, Ranveer Singh is playing Kapil Dev in 83, Sushant Singh Rajput played Mahendra Singh Dhoni in M.S. Dhoni- The Untold Story, and Emraan Hashmi emulated Mohammad Azharuddin in Azhar. Now, whose destiny will give him the golden chance to play Dada?
