AGENCIES, New Delhi: Ex-India cricketer Yuvraj Singh feels that actor Siddhant Chaturvedi, who became a household name after playing MC Sher in Zoya Akhtar’s much-appreciated film Gully Boy, would be the best bet to portray him if a biopic is ever made on him. The former cricketer, however, first said that he might give a thought to portraying the character himself.
“Probably, I’d play myself — that would be a bit desperate… (chuckles) hai na?” said Yuvraj to media.
“See, that’s the director’s job to decide. If it’s going to be a Bollywood film, then Siddhant Chaturvedi is a good option; I’d love to see him in the film.”
Yuvraj retired in 2019 and has since appeared in tournaments around the world such as the Global T20 Canada and the Abu Dhabi T10 League. He most recently played for India Legends led by Sachin Tendulkar in the Road Safety World Series that was eventually called off due to coronavirus.
Siddhant will next be seen in Bunty Aur Babli 2 co-starring Rani Mukerji, Saif Ali Khan and newbie Sharvari followed by Shakun Batra’s untitled alongside Deepika Padukone and Ananya Panday.
