Pakistan fast-bowler Shoaib Akhtar is reportedly considering his options of acting in a Bollywood movie and has asked a film director to meet him while he will be in Bangalore to play the third cricket test match with India.
“Yes, I got a call from the producer and I have asked him to come and meet me in Bangalore with the script. I’ll go through the script before taking a decision,” he reveals.
The Rawalpindi Express, who earlier had turned down a role in Mahesh Bhatt’s film “Gangster“, seems to have changed his mind.
“I’m open to acting offers in Bollywood. Let’s see how things shape up this time,” the Dawn quoted Akhtar, as saying.
He was pretty much in praise for Madhuri’s performance in Aaja Nachle and said he would one day like to act with her in a film. But considering his bad-boy reputation on and off the field, as a person and his tryst with numerous controversies.. I don’t think an actress like Madhuri will ever agree to, forget about acting, even meet with him!
On other notes, just recently we reported about Brett Lee making Bollywood debut.. seems like established actors should prepare themselves to get a tough competition from a new generation of cricketers.
