The actor is currently in his hometown, Budhana, in Uttar Pradesh, and will go through the script once he is back in the city. An industry insider says, "He is happy that he is being considered for another biopic after 'Manjhi: The Mountain Man', which released recently. But, he has not read the script yet. He will give his nod to the project only if he finds the story appealing." Apparently, a couple of other filmmakers have also approached the actor for solo-lead films.
