For cricketer S. Sreesanth, it is not the end of the road! While the BCCI has banned him from playing cricket, he has starting exploring other opportunities off the field. In clear words, the cricketer has made up his mind to become an actor.
Very soon he will be seen in a big budget South Indian film which will be simultaneously made in Telugu, Malayalam and Tamil.
The movie will be directed by renowned filmmaker Sana Yadireddy and it is based on the story of a cricketer and IPL.
While announcing the details of the film, Yadireddy said, “The film will go on floors in September and we are planning to wrap it up in six months.” He also revealed that the film will be dubbed in 14 Indian languages.
According to a newspaper report, Sreesanth, who is playing a negative role in Pooja Bhatt's Bollywood film ‘Cabaret', said he decided to accept roles in movies as he wanted to “explore another side of life”.
"This is my debut film in South and I am going to work with a big filmmaker like Sana Yadireddy. I can't ask for more. I am looking forward for a good acting career in South," Sreesanth said.
Yadireddy further applauded Sreesanth. He said that the latter is not only a good cricketer but also a superb dancer and actor.
"I have seen him performing at many events and always wanted to work with him. When we narrated the story, he liked it very much and gave his nod immediately. The film will be in the backdrop of cricket and has a very good love story in it," he said.
On being questioned about his cricket career and the BCCI's decision to ban him from playing cricket, he said that he would wait till the apex cricket body in the country took a favourable decision.
