After the success of its first season, the makers of Inside Edge are gearing up for the second instalment. In a bid to make the cricket drama all the more realistic, Director Karan Anshuman was apparently keen on having Yuvraj Singh in his drama to give it a pinch of reality and make it more relatable for the viewers. The first part of Inside Edge stars Vivek Oberoi, Angad Bedi and Richa Chadha in pivotal roles.
A source told Mid Day that director Karan Anshuman is considering the cricketer to be a part of the series. The source said, “The makers were toying with the idea of roping in a cricketer for their next season, as it would lend more authenticity to it. Yuvraj’s name cropped up several times.”
Considering Angad Bedi, who also stars in the web series, is a close friend of Singh, the responsibility to convince the cricketer fell on his shoulders. “When Angad requested Yuvi to feature in the show, he jumped at the idea. If the dates work out, Yuvi will be seen in the new season,” adds the source.
Multiple reports also suggest that other than Yuvraj Singh there are several other cricketers who have been asked to make appearances in the series as well. The source told Mid-Day, “Their names will be announced once they have signed on the dotted line.”
The entertainment industry is clearly cashing on the increasing popularity of web series. Inside Edge was named as one of the most successful web series of 2017, along with Laakhon Mein Ek, Bose Dead/Alive and Fathers, to name a few.
