Singh opened up about the possibilities of documenting his ‘love-hate’ relationship with cricket, following his battle with cancer.

Mumbai: After announcing his retirement following a stellar cricket career of nearly two decades, the 2011 world cup star spoke of what his future plans might entail, including what could possibly be a Bollywood biopic based on the all-round cricket veteran.

After the critical and box office success of a biopic based on former Indian captain Dhoni, fans around the globe will be keen on watching the dramatic tale of Yuvi on the big screen.

Singh opened up about the possibilities of documenting his ‘love-hate’ relationship with cricket and his dramatic journey following the battle with cancer.

"The autobiography or the biopic or documentary, whatever is in the store, once I relay the story of my life I will definitely make peace with it," Yuvraj said in a conversation with Republic TV. 

Yuvraj’s wife, Hazel Keech however, expressed her desire to see Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington play Yuvraj Singh in the film.
