After cricket, Sreesanth now wants to bowl over Hollywood with his acting chops
Mumbai: First-runner up in hit reality television show, Bigg Boss and former cricketer, S. Sreesanth now wants to carve a niche in the world of glitz and glamour.
The all-rounder has been steadily performing on screen with Aksar 2 in 2017 and also on television with the reality show last year. Now, he wants to make his way into Hollywood and seems to have a plan. In an interview with IANS, Sreesanth said, "I want to work with Steven Spielberg...whether it is a small role or big in a Hollywood movie, it will be a lifetime experience for me. It will be a dream come true for me. And I always believe that anything can happen in life. I look at my life journey as a miracle."
Spielberg, the critically acclaimed American filmmaker, is the man behind many cult classics such as Schindler's List, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Jurassic Park. Sreesanth has also starred alongside actor Richa Chaddha in Cabaret, a ZEE5 Original film about the life of a girl from a small village in Jharkhand, who wants to make it big in the world of dance.
Hailing from Kerala, the 35-year-old terms his cricketing and acting career as a 'miracle'. In his interview with IANS, he also revealed, "
"Stepping into the world of acting was natural to me I guess because, in my family, so many people are into arts, music and acting. In fact, I was the only black sheep that way, who became a sportsman. My father acted in Malayalam films, sister is an actress in Malayalam TV shows, my brother is a musician, my brother-in-law is also a singer. I always loved the cinema, but I loved cricket too. I think in this short span of life, I have managed to do everything that I love."
