Vijay Deverakonda said he would be interested in playing Virat Kohli in a biopic if he got that opportunity. Deverakonda, who recently starred in Liger alongside Ananya Panday, was in Dubai, watching the India and Pakistan cricket match during the Asia Cup. When asked which Indian cricketer's biopic he would do, he said since a biopic on M.S. Dhoni has already been made, he would love to feature in Kohli's biopic.
Liger marked Deverakonda's Bollywood debut and was about the rise of a fictional mixed martial arts champion. Directed by Puri Jagannadh and Karan Johar, the film also stars Ramya Krishna and Ronit Roy in primary roles.
