Neeraj Chopra won gold for India in the javelin throw at Tokyo Olympics. Many people came on stage to congratulate Neeraj on his historic achievement. At the same time, there is another interesting discussion going on in one part of social media.
The discussion is about who will play him if Neeraj Chopra’s life becomes a movie. Many have commented that Akshay Kumar, the hero of many biopics, will also play Neeraj on the silver screen.
The trolls also shared some old pictures of Akshay Kumar on social media. Now Akshay himself has come out in response to these discussions. Akshay's response was to News18.
“A picture from my first film, Saugandh, was widely circulated on social media in a manner resembling Neeraj. I enjoy trolls like this;” said Akshay.
Akshay added that Neeraj Chopra had said that if his life was to be made into a film, he should call on Akshay Kumar or Randeep Hooda to act in it. This was after he won a medal at the 2018 Asian Games.
“I have the same thing to say. Neeraj is a good-looking young man. If anyone comes forward to take my biopic, I should invite Neeraj to do my role;” said Akshay.
India wins gold in athletics for the first time in the history of the Olympics. This is India’s second gold in the Olympic individual event. India had won gold in the Beijing Olympics in shooting through Abhinav Bindra.
