Biopics on the life of sports personalities have become the flavor of the season. Following the trend is actor Abhishek Bachchan. Ab Jr who recently invested in a kabaddi team Jaipur Pink Panthers, unveiled the official jersey of his team.
Talking about his fondness of sports and sportsmen he says that he idolizes Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh and would love to essay him onscreen. "I would love to do a biopic on Yuvraj Singh" the actor said. "I love the career graph of Yuvi. It's fantastic."
The way Yuvraj has battled against all odds in life and the way he has played the world cup, knowing he had cancer deserves a salute. The way he fought cancer and made his comeback to the Indian cricket team is truly inspirational'' he adds.
This will not be the first time Abhishek would play a character based on real life. His character of Gurukant Desai in the film Guru, was loosely based on the life of late industrialist Dhirubhai Ambani.
