PTI Chairman Imran Khan has given the go-ahead to Bollywood producer Rakesh Upadhyay to make a biopic based on the cricketer-turned-politician.


Imran 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, Imran’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 Upadhyay has shown interest in making a biopic on Imran. Reportedly, the Bollywood producer, who has produced films such as ‘Khiladi 786‘ and ‘The Shaukeens‘, met Imran at his Bani Gala residence in the presence of his wife Reham Khan.


Earlier, it was being reported that Reham was collaborating with 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 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.”
