Cricket and Bollywood have forever been the first love for Indians, and hence the number of biopics that are made on the lives of cricketers is much larger in India compared to any other cricketing nation. Famous Bollywood actors including Ranveer Singh and late Sushant Singh Rajput has donned the roles of famous Indian cricketers in various biopics. In his latest interview, Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar revealed the name of the actor that he would like to play him in his biopic.
Recently Bhuvi was involved in a webinar organized by GainAccess Sports & Entertainment and SportzPower. There he was asked many questions regarding his career, life in lockdown, and much more. In one such question, he was asked about the actor in which he would choose to play his role in his biopic. Bhuvneshwar was quick to reply and named the young talented Rajkumar Rao as his choice. He added that both of them have a lot of similarities in their looks and hence chose him.
“Once somebody suggested that Rajkummar Rao has a lot of similarities with me in terms of physical appearance. So he could play my role in my biopic,” said Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Bhuvi, who hails from Meerut revealed that he would like to open an academy in Meerut because the city has given him a lot and he feels the need to give it back to the city.
“I want to open an academy in Meerut because it has given me so much. I just want to give it back to the people over there. That is something I am going to do for sure,” said Bhuvi.
He also added that he has become more and more mature in dealing with the game both physically and mentally and added that this realization has to be probably the reason for his composed nature in the field. According to him, a player doesn’t think about anything but cricket in his younger days, whereas when you grow up you learn that it’s just a phase of your life.
“When you are young, you just cannot think anything beyond cricket. But as you grow older, you get to learn that cricket is just a part of your journey,” said the right-arm pacer.
