Now comes the million-dollar question on the casting. Who will play Vishwanathan in the bio-pic (likely to be titled Grandmaster)?

I hear Aanand Rai has already set his heart on his favourite actor Dhanush. For one, Dhanush is a Tamilian like Vishwanathan. Dhanush is also a big fan of Vishwanathan. It isn’t know if Dhanush knows how to play chess. But even if he doesn’t he’s a method actor, he will learn. Anya Taylor-Joy learnt the game from scratch for the sensational chess series The Queen’s Gambit.

Dhanush was introduced to Hindi cinema by Aanand L Rai in Raanjhana. They professed an undying bromance during that time. Time to resume the brotherly bonding over a game of chess.
