Having battled a disease like cancer bravely, Yuvraj would be introducing audiences to people who have displayed true valour in case of calamity on the Nat Geo show premiering on December 24.
"I have tremendous respect for people with a profound positive attitude who face dire situations head-on and emerge stronger from them.
