The picture that Saira Banu shared has given a caption that says he wanted to become a crickter before he joined the entertainment industry.
This is what she wrote, “I always love to see this photograph as I know of his yearning as a youngster to become the country’s best sportsman! However, The Almighty and Fate had fashioned a very different destiny for Mohammed Yousuf Khan… at that time, every evening after college he always went to the grounds behind the Metro Cinema to play cricket and football with passion.”
She further added, “With other like-minded sports enthusiasts… Sahibji sweetly narrated to me how with great excitement he purchased his first cricket bat and sports shoes from a shop near Metro Cinema…!

Sahib ji trained me for a week long in our garden for bowling… we were to play in Dilip Kumar Sahib’s Team and Raj Kapoor Saab’s team.…With my bowling… can you believe I bowled the captain out first ball…to which Raj ji could not stop laughing “Arrey, yeh ladki toh serious ho gayi hai”…eventually I bowled out 8 of them.”
