Xtra Time Web Desk: Renowned Bollywood director Mahesh Manjrekar considers making a film about the life story and struggle of Rajasthan Royals batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal. It is still in its infancy, because the director of “Vaastav”, “Astitva” is working on the idea of making a film about Yashasvi.
The eldest son of a small paint shop owner from Bidhoi in Uttar Pradesh, Yashasvi decided to come to Mumbai with the ambition to make cricket as a career. He traveled with a relative to Berli in Mumbai, but it was not a big place to live. As a result, he had to spend the night with gardeners in a tent house.
Yashasvi endured so much pain at a young age is an awesome story. To earn a living, he (Yashasvi) sold Panipuri during Ramleela at the Azad maidan. It was until former Indian cricketer Dilip Vengsarkar saw him on the Azad grounds on a sunny afternoon in 2016. He was soon signed to Dadar Union Sports Club and was cared for by Jwala Singh, who worked in Vengsarkar’s academy.
It was a perfect rags to riches story when Yashasvi was roped in Rajasthan Royals for Rs 2.4 crore. Yashasvi now has a flat and has also taken a car with him in Mumbai. Recently, the Rajasthan Royals cricketer got some valuable tips from India and RCB captain Virat Kohli.
