Australian pace bowler Brett Lee recently signed an Indo-Australian romantic comedy, aptly titled ‘UnIndian’. Previously he had done many Bollywood film and music videos, after this Lee is all set to become a full-time actor.
Binga said that he was being visited by many film directors for films for the past ten years but did not feel it was the right time until now. For the last ten years he did not feel to do this but after his retirement from international cricket in 2012, he was trying to focus into this things. That time he was totally devoted to cricket and now he is going through this transitional phase and he thought why not give it a try. Lee also said that maximum cricketer spend their post cricketer life doing commentary, business and charity. He took up the film because he did not want to regret not doing it later in life. Binga always wanted to do some other things rather than just cricket. He did not want to regret at the age of 50 that he had got the chance to act in a movie but he missed it. He added that he had always given his 100 per cent in whatever he had done and will do that with the film as well.
Anup Sharma, an Indian origin-director, actor, producer and author from Australia, will direct ‘UnIndian’. The film was announced on Thursday by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott in Mumbai and will be produced by the recently established the Australia India Film Fund (AIFF). In the movie Binga will be seen romancing actress Tannishtha Chatterjee. The 37-year-old pacer said that he do not have any problem doing romantic scenes as it suits his real life personality. He also said that he can do action film in his later acting career. He is looking forward to begin shooting for the film shortly.
