Excerpts from People's exclusive cover story:
Yuvraj on his four-year relationship with actress Kim Sharma:
"I learnt a lot from her. She polished up my sense of dressing. She taught me that going out and meeting different people always helps... She also told me not to get affected with what people say."
On people's expectations of him:
"People have to realize that I have a life outside of cricket and I want to live my life to the fullest... People want me to completely change and just play cricket. They would want me to go to sleep at 8 pm every night and not be seen in public."
Actress Preity Zinta on Yuvraj's special abilities as captain of her team:
"As a captain, the presence of mind that he displayed on the field helped the team tremendously... He's open to learning and listening to others in the team...
"I would want to see Yuvi as the Indian captain someday."
Yuvraj's mother Shabnam on the right girl for her son:
"I don't want someone who throws tantrums or is very high-flying for him... She should know the basics of cooking, especially Indian vegetarian food. Considering he travels so often, she should also be able to pack well and take care of his clothes.
Whoever Yuvi ends up marrying would have to be his choice. But, of course, I would need to approve of her."
The India edition of People is priced at Rs 30.
