“Once somebody suggested that Rajkummar Rao has a lot of similarities with me in terms of physical appearance. So he could play my role in my biopic,”

he told on a webinar.

Bhuvi is known for his calm nature on the field and he said that he now feels more experienced. He said that a player cannot think of anything else and he was fond of cricket since childhood.
