Ahead of ICC World Cup 2019, there is a buzz about Kedar Jadhav making his Bollywood debut with ‘Race 4’. To put a disclaimer out – there has been no official announcement regarding ‘Race 4’ or Jadhav’s association with it by the producers of the hit franchise.
Cricketer Kedar Jadhav is likely to feature in Bollywood film Race 4, hinted vice-captain Rohit Sharma in an Instagram video. Jadhav along with Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja can be seen in the video enjoying a ride on the team bus when the Indian opener dropped a big hint that Jadhav might play a role in ‘Race 4’.
Here is the video from Sharma’s Instagram profile:
Sharma starts the video by congratulating Ravindra Jadeja for his half-century against New Zealand in the warm-up match and then talks about Jadhav getting a role in Race 4. “Jaddu ke sath mein baithe hai hamare naye Race 4 ke actor. Kedar, humne suna hai aapko Race 4 mein kuch offer kiya hai, special appearance ke liye ya aur kuch? (Next to Jaddu is our new Race 4 actor. Kedar, we have heard that you have been offered something in Race 4, a special appearance or something),” Sharma says in the video.
To this Jadhav replies, “Haan. Abhi tak finalise hua nahi hai. Hum log baat kar rahein hain uss pe. Hopefully after four months, there will be a surprise for you guys. (Yes. Nothing has been finalised yet. We are in talks)”.
Sharma then responds: “Oh yes. We can’t wait for it. All the best for that.”
Now, it is not confirmed whether it was just for fun or Kedar has actually bagged a role in the movie but if it is true, it would be exciting to see the acting skills of the cricketer on the silver screen.
A few days back, Dhoni also released a video revealing his ‘post-retirement plans’ which later turned out to be a ‘prank’ ad campaign by chocolate bar brand – SNICKERS.
So, it is tough to say if the news about Kedar’s Bollywood debut is true or it’s just another ‘prank’ video by these Indian cricketers!
In other news – India is taking on Bangladesh in their second warm-up match against Bangladesh. Jadhav, unfortunately, is not playing in the game due to his injury.
