Tamil Nadu-born famous Indian cricketer T Natarajan is in the spotlight after opening up about his upcoming biopic. Natarajan has been a key pacer of the Indian cricket team in all three formats. Currently, he is preparing to play in the upcoming IPL season with the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Natarajan's struggle to get into the Indian team and his ace bowling have been an inspiration to the cricket aspirers. To showcase Natarajan's journey, his biopic has been in the making for a while and it is expected to pace up in coming days. A question of who is going to act as Natarajan in his biopic remained rampantly on and off the social media and amidst the speculations, Natarajan has shared about his biopic.
Natarajan had participated in an event that was held at a private college in his hometown of Salem in Tamil Nadu. After participating in the event, Natarajan addressed the reporters during which he revealed that popular actor Sivakarthikeyan will be featuring his role in the biopic. Earlier last year, Natarajan has rejected the offers of his biopic.
It was reported that several filmmakers from the south approached Natarajan to produce his biopic. However, he rejected those offers initially by citing that he wants to focus solely on his cricketing career and he wishes to contribute more for the Indian team. However, in an interview to a Tamil news agency this October, Natarajan said that he had accepted the offer of making a biopic and that Sivakarthikeyan has been in talks to play his role.
Now, Natarajan has apparently divulged that Sivakarthikeyan will play in the biopic and it has become his first public address about Sivakarthikeyan's acting in the biopic. It has been more than a year since Natarajan played for the Indian team as he was out due to an injury. Speaking to the reporters in Salem, Natarajan asserted that he will perform well in the upcoming IPL season and will definitely give a comeback to the Indian team.
