Apart from being an excellent cricketer, Shikhar Dhawan, the Gabbar of the Indian cricket team, has a sizable social media following. It’s not just because of his celebrity status, but also because of the entertainment value he possesses and gives through trending reels.
Now, it appears that his talent for entertainment is going to be fully realized, as the cricketer is set to make his Bollywood debut. You read that correctly. The Punjab Kings batsman will shortly make his acting debut. According to recent reports, Shikhar has completed filming for a major mainstream film.
However, no details about the film have been released, and the title of the film is still unknown. The batsman was ecstatic when he was offered the position, according to reports, since he has “huge respect for actors.”
The film’s producers thought Shikhar would be ideal for the role and approached him months ago.
“Shikhar always had huge respect for actors, and when he was offered this part he was happy to come aboard. The makers felt that Shikhar suits the character and reached out to him a few months back,” a source said.
