Pune:Indian pace spearhead Zaheer Khan said that he would stick to his current bowling action despite experts advising him to change it to avoid further injuries.

"I am quite comfortable with my current bowling action and though the experts have advised me to change the style to keep away from injuries, I have no such intention," Zaheer said.

The medium pacer was in the city in connection with the opening of his restaurant 'ZK's'.

Zaheer, who missed few matches last season because of injuries, said he has fully recovered and hoped to perform well in the ensuing season.

"I have added some new variations to my bowling and am confident of doing well in the coming games," Zaheer added.

Zaheer also heaped lavish praise on former coach John Wright and hoped that under new coach Greg Chappell the Indian team would scale new heights.

To a query whether he was keen to feature in movies, Zaheer said "no movies and albums for me. I am totally committed to cricket."

Asked whether the idea to open a restaurant was an inspiration that he drew from Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar, who too own majestic eateries in Kolkata and Mumbai respectively, Zaheer, who hails from Srirampur in Ahmednagar and plays for Baroda in domestic circuit, said that ever since he shifted to Mumbai from Srirampur, he wanted to set up a restaurant which he has finally done.
