Cricketer Yuvraj Singh's father, Yograj Singh is set to play the role of a grandfather to Om Puri in a Hindi movie.
Yograj, a former Test cricketer, who has acted in numerous Punjabi films, will be featuring in
Rang De Basanti
director Rakyesh Om Prakash Mehra's Mad, Madder,
The film is a comedy revolving around three brothers Chikki Singh (Om Puri), Happy Singh (Deepak Dobriyal) and Fancy Singh (Shreyas Talpade) and a will left to them by their grandfather, played by Yograj.
The film is a comic journey of three brothers who seem to dislike everything about each other till one day their grandfather pulls a fast one on them.
"It's a film in which the three brothers are only after money and have little regard for values and traditions. It also revolves around a will left by me," Yograj said.
Mad, Madder, Maddest
is directed by debutant director Mrighdeep Lambha and its shooting will start in Amritsar from March 15 onwards. The film will also be shot at other locales including Srinagar and Mumbai, Yograj said.
Yograj, who in October last year unsuccessfully contested the Haryana Assembly elections as a candidate of Indian National Lok Dal, has appeared in more than 150 films and is best known for his negative roles.
"This will be my second Hindi film. I did my first Hindi film
Insaaf Ki Rani
with Jitendra and Rekha," he said.
