Yuvraj Singh, who played an important role in capturing India’s 2011 World Cup, retired from international cricket on Monday. But do you know that before the cricket he had worked in Punjabi films too. Yuvraj worked as a child artist in the 1992 film Mehndi Shagna Diya.
Yuvaraj was born on December 12, 1981, Yuvraj was only 11 years old when he worked in the film. Dhanoa, Singer Hansraj Hans, Anita Raj, Nimmi and their father Yograj Singh had also played the role of landlord with them in the film. This movie was directed by Preeti Sapru.
During the 2011 World Cup, Yuvraj was battling cancer. However, he did not let anyone know about this. Prior to the quarter-finals against Australia, the doctors had advised him not to play, but they not only came to the ground but were also the heroes of India’s victory. He scored 57 runs in that match. #respect
