After the success of its first season, the makers of Inside Edge are gearing up for the second instalment. In a bid to make the cricket drama all the more realistic, director Karan Anshuman is keen that Yuvraj Singh feature in the Richa Chadha and Vivek Oberoi starrer. A source in the know reveals, "The makers were toying with the idea of roping a cricketer for the next season, as it would lend more authenticity to it. Yuvraj's name cropped up several times."

Considering Angad Bedi, who also stars in the web series, is a close friend of Singh, the responsibility to convince the cricketer fell on his shoulders. "When Angad requested Yuvi to feature in the show, he jumped at the idea. If the dates work out, Yuvi will be seen in the new season," adds the source.

Turns out, Singh will be seen as himself in the series. While the script is currently underway, the ace cricketer is likely to be seen in four episodes. Besides Singh, there are few other cricketers who have been approached for cameo appearances. "Their names will be announced once they have signed on the dotted line."
