Faces of India – 279

Faces of India,

a series through which I intend to portray the various characters of my country whom I met during my travels. See more here


This week I have a famous sports personality for my faces of India series. He is Yuvraj Singh an Indian international cricket player. Add to that he is heart throb of many young girls, idol of many cricket fans and most important a cancer survivor! He has formed a charity foundation YOUWECAN, through which he works with underprivileeged children who are fighting cancer. Yuvraj Singh offers them financial assistance through this foundation.

During the launch of OPPO F1s Selfie Expert, Yuvraj Singh had graced the occasion. OPPO had gifted the foundation Rs. 40lakhs (4 million INR) during the launch event. In the pic you see him receiving the check. I was way behind in the audience. Thanks to my zoom lens I could capture a decent shot. This picture is totally unedited. I could not meet him face to face, may be some day I will be able to meet and take a good portrait shot of him.
