It’s been over four long years that debutant film maker Rohit Jaisingh Vaid bought the film of Legendry sports man Dhyan Chand from his son Ashok Dhyan Chand. The rights are with producer sisters’ duo Pooja Shetty and Aarti Shetty.
Earlier it was discussed with shahrukh Khan and then Ranveer Singh came in to the picture but none of the talks worked well so the project is kept under covers all these years. As the Shetty girls approached Big daddy of Bollywood Karan Johar for support, he moved the dice faster and got Varun Dhawan in to frame.

Varun loved the concept and made his dad David Dhawan listens to it too. They got Fox Star Studios to get associated for the project and things are moving fast. The ‘Dishoom’ star who is now shooting for ‘Bhadrinath ki Dulhania’ will wrap it and ready to essay the Hockey god of India.
Though Kjo and varun are not so confident to let a debutant direct the huge subject, technically Rohit Jaisingh have all the rights to direct the film as he got the permission for filming the motivation tale.
