Johnny Depp in Lalit Modi’s Biopic

A month ago, we reported that Biopic on Lalit Modi has been shelved due to IPL controversies but now the biopic just went global. The latest buzz is that now Johnny Depp has been considered for the role. Earlier Ajay Devgan was considered to play the same character.

The biggest development is that Lalit (who is allegedly in Dubai) has become keenly interested in the project and has shown interest in turning co-producer. Shailendra Singh of Percept also confirmed about the development of the project,

“All I’ll say at the moment is that two corporate houses are on board with us to produce The Commissioner as an international project. And yes, Lalit Modi is interested in the progress of the project.”

Whereas s source says,

“When Mr Modi heard of our newly revived plans, he rang up the head of one of the producers for the project to say, ‘Wait a while. The climax of my story is yet to happen.”
