Anil Kumble is the all time leading Indian wicket taker in Indian Cricket. He is the only Indian bowler to take 10 wickets in an innings. He was the hero behind many of Indian wins in many matches. Now, he is entering in the world of Bollywood. Earlier in this blog, it was written:
Anil Kumble, the Indian cricket star and country’s best ever spin bowler, is going to play a role of a bollywood movie. Directed by famous Marathi filmmaker Chandrakant Kulkarni, the movie named ‘Mirabai – Not Out’ will be released before the world cup cricket 2007. The list of cricketers emerged in bollywood movies before Anil Kumble is not short. Syed Kirmani, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Vinod Kambli, Ajay Jadeja and Navjyot Siddhu are some of the cricket stars who later acted in bollywood movies.
Well, I am not hopeful about the success of Kumble in his acting career. He is not good in acting on the field. Often, he expresses his frustration when a catch is missed by another fellow player. Secondly, he is too much intense on the field. So, I do not know how he can pretend something (in the movies). Finally, no cricket player has found stardom in Bollywood movies until.
Anyway, I wish Anil Kumble all the best in Bollywood.
