Recently, during an interview, Yuvraj was asked which actor is he keen on seeing playing his role in the biopic. He said, “Probably, I’d play myself — that would be a bit desperate… (chuckles) hai na? See, that’s the director’s job to decide. If it’s going to be a Bollywood film, then Siddhant Chaturvedi — the guy who played MC Sher in Gully Boy (2019) — is a good option; I’d love to see him in the film.”


Well, this liking comes from Inside Edge where the actor essayed the role of a cricketer who is a fast bowler from Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh. The actor received immense applaud for his acting in the web series and this is how he garnered fans in the cricket world.
