After Aamir Khan in Dangal and Salman Khan in Sultan, rumours suggest that Akshay Kumar might be seen playing with the role of a wrestler in a Bollywood movie.

Fox Star Studios is likely to produce a film on the life of Indian wrestler The Great Khali and Akshay could be roped in for the titular role, based on Mid Day.

Conjectures of Akshay doing the forthcoming picture are being made as the actor had recently expressed his desire to do a picture in the sport.

Akshay had attended a book launch event on Dara Singh where he said he would like to play with the character of Dara Singh onscreen, but that may take a lot of work in the gymnasium.

"To be Dara Singh, you will need a wrestler's body. I've to change my body for that.

"For that, I need at least couple of years of training to put on such a sort of bulk and look just like a wrestler. Thus, if I don't have many movies, I can do it," he added. But, The Great Khali is substantially larger than Dara Singh in size and portraying him onscreen will be a challenging task for even Akshay.

Aamir will appear on Friday on screen in Dangal while Salman's Sultan was a blockbuster. The film is Babita Kumari and a biopic on wrestler Mahaveer Singh Phogat and his daughters Geeta Phogat.
