Ravindra Jadeja is out of cricket action because of an injury but the star all-rounder is making sure that he is keeping the fans entertained. Unlike many Indian players who post videos on social media imitating Bollywood dialogues, Jadeja decided to try out his hands-on Tollywood.
The 33-year-old posted a reel on his Instagram account on Thursday where he can be seen perfectly nailing Arjun Allu’s hook-line from the movie ‘Pushpa: The Rise’. While he lip-syncs the dialogue “Pushpa… Pushpa Raj… Ni yavva Thaggedhe Le,” to perfection, the fans were also left in awe of his look which also resembled the character of Pushpa Raj in the film.

Jadeja is currently working on his rehab in Bengaluru
While the cricketer is slaying with his acting skills on social media, he is also working vigorously on his fitness at National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru. He had suffered a right forearm injury during the 1st Test match in Kanpur and after undergoing scans, he was diagnosed with a swelling on his forearm.
As a result, he was ruled out of the 2nd Test as well as the South Africa tour. He recently shared a video of him during his rehab with the caption “One day at a time”, with a crossed fingers emoji.
Even Team India’s Test captain Virat Kohli had talked about how much the team will miss Jadeja for the upcoming series. “Jadeja has obviously been a very very important player for us,” Kohli said.
“He (Jadeja) contributes in all three departments of the game which is invaluable, especially in overseas conditions and yeah, he will obviously be missed (in South Africa). He is injured and I wish him a speedy recovery and hope that he comes back soon,” Kohli added.
