As per the reports in TOI, a US-based firm will produce a documentary on ICC Cricket World Cup 200 hero Yuvraj Singh‘s life. The documentary will be produced by Los Angeles based Apex Entertainment and it will trace Yuvraj’s cricketing career besides his battle with cancer.
Mark Ciardi, president and co-founder of Apex Entertainment, confirmed that his firm had bagged the rights to Yuvraj’s film.
“I have always believed in our company’s philosophy of bringing aspirational stories from the world to you characters who overcome adversity, stories that inspire minds. Yuvraj’s story is not just a cricket story, it’s a human interest story. People like to watch greatness. He is an inspiration to a billion Indians and cricket fans globally, the way he faced odds in his life and career, the way he survived cancer and the way he fought back to earn his place in the Indian team. His story is worth telling and that’s why we are extremely thrilled to have got this chance,” Ciardi was quoted saying to TOI.
“The USA has a sizeable Indian population who follow cricket. A superstar like Yuvraj Singh is widely followed especially after he came to the US for cancer treatment. It was one of our common friends Ash Vasudevan (Apex co-founder) who helped us connect with Yuvraj last year where he told us that he quite liked Invincible and Miracle which were produced by us and he would like a film made on his life as well. I am happy that he gave us the rights and we would do our best to not disappoint him,” Ciardi added.
Well, now it will be interesting to see if Yuvraj’s love-affairs with Bollywood actresses would also be included in the film whenever it will be directed and presented before the cricket lovers.
