I Would Like To Play The Role Of Dara Singh In His Biopic: Akshay Kumar



Professional wrestler, actor and politician Dara Singh breathed his last on July 12, 2012 but even after over four years of demise, he resides in several hearts. It goes without saying that he will always remain the most iconic muscle man of India. Recently, a book based on the legendary actor’s life ‘Deedara Aka Dara Singh’ was launched and the event was graced by the presence of Akshay Kumar.
The book has been written by Seema Sonik Alimchand. At the event, Akshay talked about his desire to play Dara Singh if a biopic is ever made on the late icon. He was quoted as saying, “If Vindu (Dara Singh’s son) requests me, I would like to play the role of Dara Singh in his biopic”.
“Dara Singh was a huge man and I have to justify his appearance. I need at least two years to put on that kind of bulk and look like a wrestler”, the 49-year-old actor added. On the work front, Akshay will next be seen in S. Shankar’s science fiction film ‘2.0’. The flick starring superstar Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson is scheduled for a Diwali release, next year.
