A biopic on Bollywood playback veteran Kishore Kumar may see Adnan Sami Khan play the singing legend, if latest Indian tabloids reports are to believed.

According to India Times, Adnan Sami will return to acting in this biopic being produced by Anurag Basu.

Ranbir Kapoor was initially being considered for the role but talks with the actor reportedly did not work out. Adnan Sami was approached after his renditions of a few Kishore Kumar classics went viral on social media.

There has been no official statement from the filmmakers or Adnan Sami.

Adnan has previously been reported to have been roped in to play an Afghan musician in a romantic musical, but the film appears to still be in pre-production. One of his earlier acting stints was in Syed Noor's Sargam, in which he starred alongside his former wife Zeba Bakhtiar.
