Chennai, July 12: Disgraced paceman S Sreesanth will be acting in a Malayalam film, the shooting of which would begin soon.
Sreesanth, who was arrested by Delhi police on allegations of spot fixing and is now out on bail, said he always wanted to act in a film and was "excited" with the project which he described as "challenging". "It will not be easy as cricket," the cricketer said.
The film, tentatively titled Big Picture is being directed by Balachandra Kumar.
Sreesanth had done a guest role in noted Malayalam lyricist Kaithaparam Damodaran Namboodiri's film Mazhavillinattam vare (Till the endge of rainbow) but it was edited out after the spot fixing scam broke out.
