It was a starry night full of glitz and glamour as India's top sports and Bollywood celebrities came out in large numbers to support Yuvraj Singh, who launched his own clothing line YWC in Mumbai, on Saturday.

Yuvraj's brand would focus on sports-inspired wear and through it he is looking to raise funds for his cancer charity foundation YouWeCan.

"It would be an athletic fashion clothing line for men, women and children. While 70 per cent would be men's fashion the rest would be women's. The brand foresees to close somewhere around Rs 25-30 crore in topline in the current financial year and we see it becoming a Rs 100 crore brand in three years," the former India batsman was quoted as saying by Business Standard.
