It may seem strange but the Chahar brothers’ life is the perfect storyline for a blockbuster Hindi movie. The two brothers hail from Agra, from a relatively humble background, and their journey to the IPL and the Indian cricket team has been nothing short of spectacular. But that’s not what makes their story unique. Their story begins much before they were even born. Deepak and Rahul’s fathers are brothers and what’s more, they married two sisters! So, Deepak and Rahul are related twice over. What’s even more fascinating is the story of how Deepak’s father — an ordinary person without any experience of professional cricket — transformed himself into a coach that managed to produce not just one but two international cricketers. Chahar senior started coaching his son Deepak when he saw the boy’s talent with the ball. And Rahul, who is a lot younger than Deepak, just followed in his elder brother’s footsteps. In fact, Rahul admired Deepak so much that he started off as a pace bowler, just like his brother. But Rahul’s uncle (and Deepak’s father) saw that his action wasn’t good enough for him to become a world-class pace bowler. That’s when he and Deepak both convinced Rahul to try his hand at leg-spin instead. The rest, as they say, is history. Rahul is one of India’s finest leg spinners, his guile and technique helping him make it to both the Indian as well as the Mumbai Indians team at just 20 years of age. Of course, when it comes to the Chahar family, the best is yet to come. In the words of Deepak, “Our family’s story, especially my father’s, would make for the perfect movie script. So far there’s been drama, there’s been some struggle, and there’s been some measure of success. However, we feel that the climax is yet to come. When we reach a point of such success where we can confidently say that we are at the finishing line, then the movie will definitely be made.” For more interesting anecdotes from the Chahar brothers, watch the latest no-holds-barred episode of Cricbuzz’s new show, Spicy Pitch.
