The ban might stop him from playing for the country but his career is flourishing in other industries it seems. S. Sreesanth, after being casted in a Bollywood movie for a negative role, Sreesanth has been casted for a big budget Southern film. 

The cricketers career as an actor started as he got a role in Pooja Bhatt’s bollywood film Cabaret and it seems to elevate to another level after this signing. The film is to be made in three different languages- Telugu, Malayalam and Tamil. The plot, as the director Sana Yadireddy revealed, is almost related to Sreesanth as it is a story of a cricketer revolving around the much debated Indian Premier League. The film is supposed to go on the floors from september this month and is being planned to be completed within six months. Reportedly, it will be dubbed in 14 Indian languages.

When asked about casting Sreesanth, the director said he thinks him to be a very good entertainer. “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,” Yadireddy informed.

Sreesanth seemed quite excited about the project as well. “I want 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,” the bowler went on adding.

Though he signed for several movies, his first love still remains cricket and he wants to get back to the game if given a chance as Sreesanth said later. Last month he was discharged by a Delhi court of all match-fixing claims put upon him regarding the 2013 IPL spot-fixing case but the ban on him is still not lifted and the player can’t join cricket.
