A couple of years ago, Abhishek Bachchan had expressed his desire to do a biopic on the life of Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh. Junior B who is busy with the promotional activities of recently released Manmarziyaan was asked by a fan again about one sportsperson’s biopic he would love to do.
Despite all these years, the actor maintained that it is still Yuvraj Singh. When prompted about sharing a similar physique as well as face cut, Abhishek said that he too used to think the same until he figured out another actor in Bollywood who would be a better choice to essay the role.
AB said, “So, I’ve said this many years ago, I was very interested, I still feel it’ll be a fantastic biopic. I think Yuvraj Singh’s life is a film dying to be made. He is an absolute hero, his life arc has been amazing. From his rise as the youngster to the Indian cricket team, his life, his flamboyance, his style, his great game play, to finding out that he has cancer, fighting cancer, winning the world cup, making it back to the Indian national team. Great Story.”
“I thought that first but I found another actor who, I think, will do it better. Physically, he looks more. But, I’ll still try, I’d love to. I think Yuvi’s life would be wonderful”, he added.
He also added on the interesting plot of the movie on the life of Yuvraj Singh considering he has an amazing journey from being a young cricketer, winning the world cup, being diagnosed with cancer and coming out of it as a winner.
On the work front, Abhishek Bachchan was last seen in Manmarziyaan which scored an average at the box office. Also reports suggest that soon he’ll be starting a film with wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan titled Gulab Jamun.
