These days a lot of Bollywood stars and famous TV personalities are trying their hand at web series and are going digital way. Earlier, R Madhavan announced his debut web series ‘Breathe’. And now, the latest one to join the list is the Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh. Yes! Team India’s all-rounder will be making his acting debut with ‘Inside Edge’ season 2.

A source told Mid-Day that director Karan Anshuman is considering the cricketer to be a part of the series. The source said, “The makers were toying with the idea of roping in a cricketer for their next season, as it would lend more authenticity to it. Yuvraj’s name cropped up several times.”

If reports are to be believed, Yuvraj will be seen playing himself in the series and will feature in four episodes. Not just Yuvi, but other cricketers are also being considered for the show. But their names will only surface once they have been signed the contract.

Meanwhile, the first season of ‘Inside Edge’ starred Vivek Oberoi, Richa Chadha and Angad Bedi in the lead roles and instantly became a hit. The series was positively received by the critics and the audience. According to reports, Angad Bedi, who featured in the first part, requested Yuvraj Singh to come onboard for it and since both are best buddies, it became easier for the makers to rope in Yuvraj.
