Brett Lee Acts in Bollywood Movie ‘Victory’

Australian pace bowler Brett Lee will be seen in a new role very soon. Australia’s world cup winning cricketer has acted in an upcoming film titled ‘Victory’, directed by Ajit Pal. Brett Lee said that he had an intention to act in Bollywood movie and he was now proud to get a chance in the movie.

Besides Lee, the movie features some other Australian cricketers in the movie. According to the director Ajit Pal, the movie revolves around the story of a small town boy who carries a dream to play for Indian national team and finally he gets into the Indian team in Twenty20 format. Mr. Pal termed the story as of a modern day cricketer. Harman Baweja plays the lead role of the movie.

Indiatimes reported:

"I wanted to do a Bollywood movie. I am very proud to say that I had a chance. I got amazing people to work with who helped me day-to-day. It's been an awesome experience," Lee said of his role in the film "Victory".

"It's a film on the life of any modern day cricketer who plays for the national side. It's a story of a small town boy from Jaisalmer who has nurtured the dream of playing for India. How he finally succeeds in making it to the Indian team," said Pal.

I think, Brett Lee is the biggest attraction of the movie. People will be interested to the movie initially for this mega star of today’s cricket. However, the story of the movie seems to be strong as well. India is a cricket crazy nation. That means, Victory could be a box office hit in India. The movie could be a potential market in Australia as well because of the presence of Brett Lee and some other Australian cricketers in the movie. So, I would not be surprised if Victory becomes one of the most successful movies of this year in Bollywood industry.
