One of the fastest bowlers in cricket history has made an unlikely career move – starring in a romantic comedy.

Brett Lee plays an English teacher who falls in love with an Indian single mother Tanishtha Chatterjee in the movie Unindian.

Shot in Sydney and directed by Anupam Sharma the movie will open across 300 screens across the sub-continent after a red carpet premier on August 19.

Since his playing days, Lee has built a presence in India – appearing in a string of TV commercials and even releasing a music single.

He also established some Bollywood connections playing in the Indian Premier League – playing under Shah Rukh Khan for the Kolkata Knight Riders and Preity Zinta for the Kings XI Punjabs.

In an interview to BBC Lee said that he had always been interested in acting.

“On the cricket field I’m totally different on the field to what I am off the field. It came naturally to be in front of the camera,” he told BBC.
