Australian cricketer Brett Lee is all set to make his big screen debut with an international film UnIndian, clad in a blue sherwani.
Lee’s character will fall for an Indian girl played by Tannishtha Chatterjee in the film.
Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh shared the picture from the film sets on micro-blogging site Twitter. He wrote, “Cricketer Bret Lee turns actor. Here’s a glimpse of his first lead role in the film titled #unINDIAN…”
Lee, will be seen not just showing his acting skills in the film but will also groove to Bollywood songs, composed by Indian music duo Salim-Sulaiman, in the Australian feature film UnIndian.
Directed by Anupam Sharma, the cross-cultural comedy is the first production of the newly established Australia India Film Fund (AIFF).
“We were all excited prepping up for this final number composed by Salim Sulaiman. Specially because the number has some interesting twists and turns, and Brett in a traditional Indian costume. Brett took time out from his World Cup commentary a week before the big India Australia match.
“His love for India and the ease with which he takes on Indian customs is the reason why many call him a de facto Indian. To see if we managed to convince Brett to do a Bollywood Thumka his fans will have to wait and see the film,” Sharma said in a statement.
The shooting of the film has wrapped up and it is set to premiere later this year.
