From Bollywood to IPL, Digvijay Deshmukh to play for Mumbai Indians
Remember the Bollywood film ‘Kai Po Che’? Viewers were delighted with the film when it was made in 2013 with the help of Chetan Bhagat’s novel ‘The Three Mistakes of My Life’.
The film, starring Sushant Singh Rajput, Rajkummar Rao and Amit Sadh, revolved around 14-year old rising batsman Ali Hashmi. He was shown as a destructive batsman in the film. Digvijay Deshmukh who was starring Ali Hashmi in the film will be making his Indian Premier League (IPL) debut in the upcoming season in 2020.
When Digvijay played the role of a batsman on the screen, he was 14 years old. The age and role of Digvijay of the screen did not match the reality. Because he’s a pacer. Digvijay Deshmukh was taken by the current IPL champion Mumbai Indians at the auction in Kolkata yesterday. Mumbai spent Rs 20 lakh to buy him.
Even he debuted in the film industry at a young age, the cricketing career had not been too long for him. He made his domestic debut for Maharashtra earlier this year.
However, in the last scene of the film, he was seen in India’s jersey as a devastating batsman. So there will be a curiosity surrounding Digvijay in the upcoming IPL obviously.
