Yuvraj cries foul

After watching Victory, especially the scene where Harman Baweja, playing a test cricketer, and his girlfriend Amrita Rao sleep on the same bed but with a pillow safely dividing them, cricketer Yuvraj Singh cried out, “This can’t be my story.”

Confirming the incident, the film’s leading man Harman said, “It’s true when Yuvraj saw the pillow between me and Amrita in bed he said, ‘This can’t be my story’. He was also quite kicked by the sequence where I sing Money Money with all those girls. He enjoyed the high-flying image of the cricketer shown in the film.”

The Indian cricket team watched Ajitpal Mangat’s film Victory in Sri Lanka where they are playing a one-day series.

Outwardly they seemed quite pleased by the way the cricketing world had been portrayed. Sachin Tendulkar seemed to think Harman handled the bat and the ‘bawl’ (the drama) very well.

“Sachin did seem impressed by my abilities. But maybe he was just being polite,” Harman said. “Not one person has disliked the film.”

And whom did the cricket team like the best?

“You mean, besides me? They loved Harbhajan Singh. They feel Bhaji is really working hard on his acting and will soon become a full-fledged actor,” says Harman.
