Yesterday, we reported that director Aanand L Rai is all set to direct a biopic on Indian chess grandmaster Viswanathan Anand. Rai will also produce the film besides Mahaveer Jain’s Sundial Entertainment. There were also speculations that actor R Madhavan would be playing respected industrialist and philanthropist Ratan Tata in a film.
A poster for the alleged film was also circulated online but the actor has now addressed these speculations and said that it was a fan-made poster.
“@ActorMadhavan Is this true that You are gonna play a lead role in Ratan Tata Biopic?? if this happens it’s gonna be a huge inspiration to many,” a Twitter user had asked actor R Madhavan.

“Hey unfortunately it’s not true. It was just a wish at some fans will made the poster. No such project is even on the pipeline or being discussed,” the actor replied.
The actor was last seen in Nishabdham opposite actress Anushka Shetty. The film released on Amazon Prime Video but failed to make waves.
As far as the Viswanathan Anand biopic is concerned, the name of the movie and the cast of the film are yet to be announced.
