Angad Bedi, son of the former Indian cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi seems to hit the headlines once again after he decided to make a film on his father’s journey. However, Bedi Jr came into limelight because of his comments on former Indian Captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Angad is presently working on a web series named ‘Inside Edge’ which is a story of Mumbai Mavericks, a T20 cricket franchise playing in Powerplay League. The series is divided into a total of ten episodes and is expected to be a cracker one.

‘Dhoni- The Inspiration’

Like many other, Angad Bedi is also inspired by Mahendra Singh Dhoni and took no short-cuts to appreciate his desperation for the game. He was quoted as saying by IANS, “I remember when Dhoni first came to Delhi, the coach of Major Dhyan Chand National Stadium asked him… ‘Aap kya karna chahte ho? (What do you want to do?)’. He said, “Sir main Bharat ka kaptaan banna chahta hoon (Sir, I want to be the Captain of Indian cricket team)’. He was humble, but he was sure of his abilities and I was drawn to that the most.”

“Dhoni’s head was very clear. And it showed in his leadership qualities even when he captained India with grace and dignity. I wanted to bring that grace and dignity in Arvind, my character in the show,” he added.

Inside Edge

Inside Edge is set in a landscape of conflict interests, where selfishness is almost a virtue, where individual keep no box unturned. It’s a story which helps cricket fans witness ‘game behind the game’.

Angad plays the role of the captain of a cricket team that goes through a lot of turmoil. To get into the character fully and understand these situations more precisely, Angad Bedi followed the grounds of ‘Sushant Singh Rajput’ and watched as many videos of M.S Dhoni on YouTube.
