Controversial and disgraced India Test cricketer Shanthakumaran Sreesanth desires of playing interesting and negative roles in films. Sreesanth is currently in Chennai to start work on his debut film. Sreesanth was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle, “I would like to do interesting character roles and even play villain. I would be honoured to learn from legends like Kamal Hasan, Rajinikanth and Ajith.”

 

The Kerala cricketer has also composed music and produced six songs for a Tamil film. He said, “I’ve tried my hand at music composing with these songs. I’m looking for a good producer. Once people start listening to it, I will know if it’s good or bad.” A big fan of Kamal Hasan, Sreesanth is waiting for the Tamil remake of Drishyam, starring Mohanlal.

 

He said, “I am eagerly waiting to see the Tamil remake of Drishyam because I am also a big fan of Mohanlal.” Back in Chennai for his film, Sreesanth said, “Chennai has always been lucky for me, even for cricket. I was here at the MRF Pace Foundation. Now, I’m doing a film here, which is a Tamil/Telugu bilingual with a leading production house.” Sreesanth’s film is all set to go on the floors by October 3, this year.
