Cricketer Yuvraj Singh's younger brother Zoravar is preparing to enter Bollywood. He is taking the best possible training to make it big in filmdom, said his father.

"Zoravar has joined Kishore Namit Kapoor's Acting Institute just 15 days back. He will be there for a year and take training in various aspects of acting. We will launch him in a big way, but it is too early to say anything more about it," father Yograj Singh told IANS over phone.

Yograj, who himself has acted in more than 150 Punjabi films in a career span of 30 years, says Zoravar has all the qualities to be an actor.

"He is 6.4 ft tall and is working on everything, which makes a good actor. Besides, he has inherited many of my qualities. As a father, I want him to work hard to earn success for himself. I want him to make his own identity."

"He is 19 years old and I will make sure he fights his own battle," said Yograj who is playing an important role in the TV series Mohe Rang De.

Yograj started his career as a cricketer and was part of the Indian team for a brief period. He said he wanted Zoravar to be a cricketer, but destiny seems to have planned something else for him.

"I had completely overlooked Zoravar during his growing age because I was concentrating on Yuvraj. Later, I realised that it was too late. But I'm happy with the present situation too, as my two sons will represent both my qualities - Yuvraj as player and Zoravar as actor."

Asked about Yuvraj getting into acting, Yograj said: "I will never allow Yuvraj to get into acting until he is 40. He has to play a lot of cricket for the country. I want him to score 15,000 runs in test cricket."
