Vicky Kaushal is one of the front-runners for the upcoming biopic on Hockey legend Major Dhyanchand, directed by Abhishek Chaubey.

Earlier, producer Ronnie Screwvala announced the project on Twitter, writing “1500+ goals, 3 Olympic gold medals, and a story of India’s pride. It gives us immense pleasure to announce our next with #AbhishekChaubey - a biopic on the Hockey Wizard of India - #DHYANCHAND."

A Pinkvilla report stated that Kaushal was really impressed with the story and has shown keen interest in the project. An earlier report stated that Ishaan Khatter was also considered for the role.

Kaushal has recently wrapped up shooting for Meghna Gulzar’s Sam Bahadur, a biopic on Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw.
