Yuvraj Singh who retired from international cricket is all set to make his presence felt in the web world. He will be seen in the Hotstar Specials latest series The Office, an official adaptation of the international sitcom series of the same name.
Talking about it, he said to a leading daily, “Well, it's always good to try something new. I have played cricket all my life. Cricket has given me everything, but because it has been such a big part of my life, I never got the time to do anything else. So I thought, let’s try something different and fun.”
“I have tried my hand at something that is fun and exciting. The curiosity about what I’m doing with Hotstar Specials new show The Office ends today! I’ve had a lot of fun shooting for something special with the cast of the show, and I hope people enjoy watching it – stream now to know more,” said Yuvraj who is excited to kick start his second innings.
He will be seen in a corporate avatar in the series. "I had a very interesting experience with the employees there, and I must say, I have never seen so much of craziness in one place before this,” he said.
The Office is a 13-episode show that shows the 9-5 lives of employees at Wilkins Chawla, a newspaper company near Faridabad. The cast includes Mukul Chaddha, Gauahar Khan, Ranvir Shorey, Gopal Datt, Sayandeep Sengupta, Samridhi Dewan, Priyanka Setia, Abhinav Sharma, Gavin Methalaka, Preeti Kochar, Sunil Jetly, Chien Ho Liao, Nehpal Gautam and Mayur Bansiwal amongst others.
For those who do not know, Yuvi has been part of two Punjabi films, Mehndi Sagna Di and Putt Sardara as a child actor. The recent-retired cricketer has also lent his voice in the Hindi animated film, Jumbo, that released in 2008.
Talking about his upcoming projects, he said, “I am still keeping my options open for now, aaram se decide karenge.”
We wish Yuvi all the very best and welcome him to the world of entertainment again!
