MS Dhoni- The Untold Story is up for release this Friday, September 30. The role of MS Dhoni is essayed by Sushant Singh Rajput, Kiara Advani as Sakshi Dhoni, Disha Patani as MS Dhoni’s ex-girlfriend and Anupam Kher as Paan Singh Dhoni. But there is one more prominent character in the film and also in MS Dhoni’s life and that is his long time colleague and cricketer Yuvraj Singh. The character of Yuvraj Singh is played by actor Herry Tangri, who is famous for his role of Loki Local in Love, Sex Aur Dhokha. BollywoodLife exclusively got in touch with the young actor and had an interesting chat.
There are two things in it, one is my effort and second is the filmmaker approached me. Because it was in the news that a movie on MS Dhoni is being made and I got to know about the presence of Yuvraj Singh’s character in the film. I applied for the same and tried my best to play Yuvraj Singh in the movie. I contacted casting director Vicky Sidana and kept on buzzing him for the same as I resemble Yuvraj Singh a lot and many have told me the same, also I have played cricket at a district level in Dehradun. Finally, after trying for so long, I got a call from Vicky Sidana and he told me director Neeraj Pandey wanted to meet me. During our interaction, Neeraj Pandey sir told me that he has watched a film of mine which hasn’t released yet and he liked my work in that film. A few days later I was called and confirmed for the role, without even auditioning for it. But then the problem occurred as Yuvraj Singh is a left-handed batsman and I am a right handed. We were all worried but then we finally decided to get me trained by cricket coach and I was trained by him for two months. I saw his videos and prepared for the role.
