The songs sung by the legendary Bollywood singer, composer and actor Kishore Kumar, even to this day, remain evergreen and eternal. The talks of his biopic had surfaced a long time ago, but then they died down without any official confirmation. Now, the new reports suggest that the project is being reconsidered and is on track again. In fact, to play the titular role in the biopic, Bollywood singer, Adnan Sami has been approached.
A source told Times of India that since Adnan Sami himself is a singer, music composer and a good actor too, he is a perfect fit to play him. If you look closely, you might find a few similarities in the way the two look too. The same source added that Adnan Sami will also recreate some of Kishore Kumar’s classic songs too for the movie.
Interestingly, he recently sang Yeh Jawaani in Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria, and Ananya Pandey’s Student of the Year 2, the original of which Kishore Kumar sang. Sami’s The Jawaani Song too was very well received by the viewers and this shows that the audience might just accept Sami as Kishore Kumar than any other actor.
Adnan Sami’s versions of some of the Kishore Kumar’s classics went viral on social media. Reportedly, it was after this only that the makers of the movie thought of Adnan to play the role. Before this, Anurag Basu had announced this project with Ranbir Kapoor even before Jagga Jaasoos hit the theatres. But clearly, after the big fiasco that followed, the duo scrapped the contract of working together. The TOI report also informs us that Adnan Sami is being finalized for the project and the makers are planning to release the first look sort of something to announce the project.
Till then, we can just wait as nothing official about the movie has come out yet. Keep looking at this space for more updates about this. Here’s the Wiki synopsis of Anurag Basu’s last film, Jagga Jasoos:
