Ever since Neeraj Chopra bagged the gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, we have been hearing about his biopic, which led to trending memes on Twitter. The athlete had earlier said that he wants Akshay Kumar or Randeep Hooda to play the lead role in his biopic.
Now, Kumar has reacted to Chopra’s suggestion and said that the Olympic gold-medalist should play the actor in his biopic. The Bell Bottom actor reacted to the athlete’s suggestion during a media interaction and said that Chopra should play the role of the actor in his biopic. He said, “I would say Neeraj Chopra is a very good-looking guy. Agar mera koi biopic karega toh woh kar sakta hai (If a biopic about me is made someday, he should play me in the film)”.

Kumar has played a number of roles inspired by real-life characters, in various films such as PadMan, Rustom and Kesari. The actor is currently preparing for his thriller Bell Bottom to release. In the film, he plays an undercover agent on a mission to rescue hostages from a hijacked plane. The film, which also stars Lara Dutta, Vaani Kapoor and Huma Qureshi, is slated for a theatrical release on August 19.
In other news, for Bell Bottom promotions, Kumar revealed to the audience of the time when he trained harder than the rest of the people on set to impress his wife, Twinkle Khanna, who was visiting him on set.
“My wife happened to be visiting on the set when we shot this sequence in the jungle. So, I had to pull up all my tricks out of the bag cause even after 20 years I still can’t help but want to impress her. I had to do the most chin-ups because there were other boys” he said in the video, mentioning he could beat the rest. “Luckily, my wife notices everything so it is never in vain.”
“I am impressed. Now will you stop these stunts?” she wrote in the comments under the video. Khanna made it clear, again, that more than impress, these stunts terrify her.
