Salman Khan and Puneet Issar have been planning a biopic on the popular wrestler Gama Pehlwan for quite some time now. Finally it is Sohail Khan who has been locked on to play the lead part.
Earlier Puneet had stated that it was Salman who had suggested Sohail’s name and now the actor is all set to be in shape for his next. Puneet Issar has decided to even rope in the Olympian Sushil Kumar to train Sohail and the actor has been asked to weigh about 99 kgs to get perfect for the part.
Produced by Salman Khan, this biopic is said to revolve around Gama Pehlwan’s professional life along with some aspects of his personal life which includes his passion for poetry and friendship with singer Bade Ghulam Ali Khan.
