Imran Khan goes Bollywood? Indian producer to make biopic on PTI chairman
PTI chief Imran Khan has had quite the life. From his initial days of cricket to his well publicised marriage to British socialite and celebrity Jemima Goldsmith, his philanthropic activities and finally, Khan’s political ascent. The Khan from Mianwali has courted success throughout his life and for that matter, many wish to helm a biopic on him.
Whilst Kaptaan has yet to make it to the silver screen, a certain Bollywood producer by the name of Rakesh Upadhyay has shown interest in making a biopic on Imran Khan. Reportedly, the Bollywood producer, who has produced films such as Khiladi 786 and The Shaukeens, met Imran Khan at his Bani Gala residence in the presence of his wife Reham Khan.
Earlier, it was being reported that Reham Khan was collaborating with Rakesh Upadhyay to make a film and the two had met at Bani Gala for that very reason. However, the lady herself clarified in a tweet that it was not the case.

According to a local news agency, the Indian producer had met Imran Khan to seek permission and the PTI chief had granted it to him. This is what he said to a private news agency:-
“It was nice visiting Pakistan, the people here are wonderful and I was here to seek approval from Imran Khan to make a biopic on him. The idea to make a film on international level is that Imran Khan is a global icon.”
