Noida, Sept 10: He was an officer in the Punjab Police, went on to be a bodybuilder, a professiol wrestler and even won the Mr. India title. Now, wrestler Dalip Singh Ra, better known by his ‘The Great Khali’ moniker, says he wouldn’t mind if someone approaches him with the idea of a movie on his life. Bollywood, over the past few years, has witnessed a surge in biopics, especially inspiratiol tales of sportspersons. During a visit to the IANS headquarters here on Saturday, when Khali, a former World Heavyweight Champion, was asked if he would like a movie to tell his tale, he said: “I have never thought about a biopic. If somebody will come to me, then definitely I will tell that person about myself. “It would be good if there is a biopic on me. But even if there is no biopic, then also it’s fine. Everybody wants to see a film made on them... But it’s not like I will die of hunger if it’s not made,” he added. A former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star, Khali who has a towering height of 7’1 ft, said a biography which will be out in November will be a tell-all tale on his life. “There is a book coming up on my real life. It’s a biography. It will come out in November and will be in English. I will reveal further details later,” he said. Khali, who has himself featured in Hollywood films like “The Longest Yard” and “Get Smart” as well as Bollywood movies like “Kushti” and “Ramaa: The Saviour”, visited IANS to talk about professiol wrestling matches that he is organising in Harya next month. Khali even lauded how efforts are being made by Bollywood superstars Salman Khan and Aamir Khan to promote wrestling. While Salman did it through “Sultan”, Aamir will be seen in “Dangal”, which is on the life of Mahavir Singh Phogat. (IANS)
