Shikhar Dhawan to make his Bollywood debut soon
“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. It’s a proper full-length role and is not a cameo. His part is pivotal to the film, which is expected to release sometime this year,” quoted one of the sources at Pinkvilla.
Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan is currently representing Punjab Kings in the IPL 2022. The swashbuckling opener has amassed 421 runs in 13 matches at an average of 38.27, including three half-centuries.
However, his team has been almost eliminated from the competition as Punjab Kings are placed 7th in the points table with six wins and seven losses after 13 matches.
“Between 5-10 we lost too many wickets and that’s where we lost the game. It was definitely chaseable for the batting we have, and the wicket wasn’t as bad as it seemed. There’s still a match to be played. Want to go out there and play the best cricket. Still haven’t played our best cricket and look forward to doing that in the last game,” said Punjab Kings’ skipper Mayank Agarwal after losing their last game to Delhi Capitals by 17 runs.
