Yuvraj Singh turns to Bollywood?

Gullu Gupshup | February 25, 2008 13:03 IST

Yuvraj Singh and Deepika Padukone

Ace cricketer Yuvraj Singh [Images] will now, in all probably, star in a Hindi film.

If sources are to be believed, Yuvi's father, Yograj, is very keen to make a film based on his son's life.

Interestingly, it seems as if Yuvi is following his father's steps. Yograj started his career as a cricketer. He played in the Indian team only once -- in a match against New Zealand [Images] in Mohali, in 1981.  When he career failed to bloom, he turned to Bollywood. That, unfortunately, did not click either. So Yograj became a Punjabi actor, and starred in quite a few films.

It is said he burnt all his cricket bats when his cricketing career failed.

But when Yuvraj was born, his interest in cricket was revived, and he started training his son.

According to our sources, the yet-untitled film will be based on Yuvraj's struggling days, culminating in his success. 

Now the question is this: Will Yuvi's reportedly real life love Deepika Padukone [Images] play his reel life love as well? Lets wait and watch.
