Guran, who is he? All you need to know regarding the Lagaan movie character that Joe Root was compared to by Dinesh Karthik‘s
One of the most famous Bollywood films is Lagaan. Aamir Khan played the part of the main hero in the 2001 film, which was released. A team from rural India played against a squad from England in the film. The English team had players with professional backgrounds, but the Indian team lacked significant experience.
Guran, who was portrayed by the late Rajesh Vivek, was chosen as one of the Indian team’s players. He attacked the bowlers in a distinctive manner. Guran played a shot that is typically used in “Gilli Danda” and hit the ball twice on the first ball he faced.
Guran played numerous unbelievable smashes, including the reverse scoop that Dinesh Karthik alludes to, after being reminded that hitting the ball twice is prohibited in cricket.
