Shah Rukh Khan to play Lalit Modi

Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan is all set to essay the role of IPL chairman Lalit Modi in a film titled 'The Commissioner'.

Modi on Tuesday gave his nod to Bollywood production house Percept Picture Company (PPC) for a "fictional biopic".

Elaborating on the project, PPC Shailendra Singh, joint managing director of PPC, said that film will be a great mix of entertainment, sports and a whole emotional vibe

"Lalit's story has all the ingredients for a movie - rags to riches, fame, money and all that Indian audiences are going to enjoy watching. Indians at large would love to watch a good cricket marketing film," he added.

It is learnt that the movie has been scripted by Shridhar Raghavan and is "under development". However, the producers have not yet announced the director for the movie.

Another highlight of the film is the presence of some major international cricketers.

"Cricketers are a part of the script because it happens to be based on IPL that has around 200 cricketers in it. They do happen to be a part of the cast unless any cricketer has a strict objection to being in the film," said Shailendra Singh

The filming of the movie will start with in a couple of months and will be released by the end of the year 2010.
