A standard international chess tournament will be held in Calcutta from Wednesday November 17 to next Sunday. Anand faced world champion Magnus Carlsen in this tournament a few years ago. However, this time, Anand will be named as the mentor of the competition, not as a player.
During the interview, Viswanathan Anand said, “I accepted the biopic. The matter has been discussed with the producer several times already. I told them the stories of my life. The script writing work. will start very soon. However, due to Corona, the work has stalled. Hopefully everything will start very soon. I can’t say much about the biopic now. I don’t know when or how filming will start. Hold on a few days everything we will learn about this biopic.
Anand was asked which actor he would like to see in his role in the film? Anand’s frank response to the question was, âI can’t say who will play my part in the film. But I can say my choice. It might be nice if Aamir Khan plays Viswanathan Anand on screen. I think Aamir Khan has a lot in common with me.
Anand, like Leander Paes, was then asked whether or not he wanted to enter politics. Before answering the question, Anand replied, âNo, I don’t intend to go into politics. I want to keep playing chess.
