Veteran Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has finally fulfilled the wish of Angad Bedi, as the Punjab lad has given a special gift –a cricket bat to the Bollywood actor for his role as a cricketer on Tuesday (14 August). Bedi is all set to play a cricketer’s role in The Zoya Factor.
The actor also cleared all rumours about his fall-out with the all-rounder and termed the reports about the same as “rubbish”, while DNA has also reported that Yuvraj gifted him a bat when he heard that Angad is playing a cricketer’s role in the film.
Bedi confirmed, “I am happy to embark upon the journey of The Zoya Factor with the support and love of my friend, my brother Yuvraj.”
Confirming about the gift given by Yuvraj, “This is the YWC Bat (Yuvraj’s YouWeCan Foundation). They have come up with a special edition for cricket gear and I have been actually chasing Yuvraj for a long time to give me a bat. He had said when the time was right, he would gift it to me himself. I am glad that he signed this bat personally for me because now that I am doing a project which is based on cricket, I think this is going to come really handy. I am going to use this during my practice sessions and also in the matches that I am going to play on the field at the same time which will also be showcased in the film.”
Noteworthy, Angad will be playing the role of ex-cricket captain while the film is based on a book by Anuja Chauhan.
