Sohail Khan is the next to join the already long list of producers churning out biopics of famous sportspersons.
Titled Freaky Ali, this film is being touted as Bollywood’s first ever Golf film, and is based on the life and struggles of Ali who went on to become a golfing sensation from being an extortion debt collector.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the titular character of Ali and Amy Jackson plays his love interest. Arbaaz Khan will also be seen in the film.
“I’ve been practicing the game (golf) for the last one year and it has taught me the virtue of patience. That’s where the concept of Freaky Ali struck me. It was delighting to have wrapped up the film in 40 days with shoots in Mumbai, Delhi and Pune and within a certain budget. This is the first time my production costs have run into single digits,” Sohail said.
The film is slated to release on September 9, 2016.
