Is Aamir Bashir's Bhaisaab character from 'Inside Edge 2' based THIS political leader?


Inside Edge Season 2 is all the hype in town ever since the show went live last week. The show is the perfect blend of politics, corruption, controversies, and betrayal when it comes to cricket. With the second instalment, the stakes are higher and the buzz amongst the fans can't be ignored!

One of the most intense characters in the show is Aamir Bashir's Bhaisaab. Yashwardhan Patil's aka Bhaisaab's character is powerful, ambitious and mysterious, he is the Cheif of Indian Cricket Board and is shown to be the most influential and powerful person around. Interestingly the character of Bhaisaab draws a strong resemblance to Sharad Pawar who was the chief Board of Control for Cricket in India or BCCI and also the Vice President and President of International Cricket Council.

Sharad Pawar

Many are of the opinion that the character of Bhaisaab is based on  Sharad Pawar, owing to the strong parallel the characters from the show have with the -life cricket world. The similarities between the two characters continue with both of them being influential people in powerful positions with conflict of interests in the game. Bhaisaab is also shown to have varied interests in the Power Play League which is the fictional version of IPL.

It seems like the makers have consciously stayed away from giving the actor the exact look of the personality to refrain from controversies. However, once you watch the show, it will be very visible that the character is Sharad himself.
