Yuvraj Singh to Simi Garewal: I want to act with Kajol

The cricketer says he would like to turn actor after he retires from the game

For the first time, Simi Garewal chats with a cricketer on her show, Simi Selects India’s Most Desirable. After getting B-town singletons to open up, she gets Yuvraj Singh to reveal his innermost desires – and little-known facts about himself. Did you know that Yuvraj has acted in two Punjabi films? Yuvraj admitted that once he retires from cricket, he wants to try his hand at acting. “I know that will be late (he will be much older) but you know I can do a lot of make up. I think I would love to act with Kajol.” When quizzed on whether he has met Kajol, Yuvi said, “Yes I have. When I got a chance to meet her I told her, ‘When I was young, I had come to take your autograph but I just couldn’t get through to you because of the crowd’.” But now, thanks to his rising fame, he could meet her. This fame did not come easily. Yuvraj had a tough time reaching the international stage. “I remember practising just cricket for 24 hours. I used to get very tired. Sometimes, when I didn’t want to get up, my father used to pour cold water on my quilt, so I would get up and start training. I didn’t like it then but I think the sacrifices I made at that time, and what he made me do is the reason I could play for India at a very early age.”
