Veteran Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh who announced his retirement from all forms of cricket in December has said that he would like to have a biopic made on his life.

Former Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh who made his debut in 1998, played 103 Tests, 236 ODIs and 28 T20Is for India National Cricket Team. He was the first-choice spinner of the team for a very long-time, however, after the 2011 World Cup, he lost his place from the team and played a handful of matches since then.

Meanwhile, Harbhajan Singh has said that he wants a film or a web series to be made on his life because he wants everyone to know his side of the story.

“I would like a film or a web series made on my life so that people can also know my side of the story, what kind of a guy I am, and what I do,” said Harbhajan told Zee News 

When Harbhajan was asked who he would like to see playing the villain in his biopic, he replied:

Can’t say who would be the villain in my biopic. There is not one but many.”

Former Indian off-spinner further added that a cricketer always wants to play a farewell game but sometimes luck doesn’t favour it. He asserted:

 “Every player wants to retire wearing the India jersey but luck will not always be on your side and sometimes what you wish for, doesn’t happen. The big names that you have taken like VVS (Laxman), Rahul (Dravid), Viru (Virender Sehwag), and many others who took retirement later didn’t get the chance.”

Meanwhile, Harbhajan Singh has also said that some BCCI officials wanted to remove him from the team, he added that if he had got some support from the management he would have bagged 100-150 more wickets in his career.

“…To a certain extent, there were some BCCI officials who were involved in this [his exit from the team] and they didn’t want me and the captain [MS Dhoni] may have supported that but a captain can never be above the BCCI. The BCCI officials have always been bigger than the captain, coach, or the team.”

“I was 31 when I took 400 wickets and if I would have played another 4-5 years, keeping in mind the kind of standards I had set for myself, I can tell you that I would have taken another 100-150 wickets or more,” he added.
