Indian cricketers who have appeared in movies
Although Harbhajan Singh is not the only player who is going to appear in a movie after cricket. Many cricketers have done so, although no one could earn a big name there. If we talk about some of these, then Sunil Gavaskar, the former captain of the Indian team, was seen as a lead actor in the Marathi film ‘Savli Premachi’ during his cricket career. This film did not do much. Apart from this, he was seen as a guest appearance in the comedy Hindi film Maalamaal released in 1988.
Apart from this, former cricketer Sandeep Patil worked in the film “Kabhi Ajnabi The”. Former wicketkeeper Syed Kirmani was also in the role of Villain in the same film. Salim Durani was the first Indian cricketer to move from cricket to Bollywood. Vinod Kambli and Ajay Jadeja have also appeared in the movies.
