"that’s why I am always up for it."
Cricketer Dwayne Bravo has expressed his desire to appear in a Bollywood film.
He has released songs as well as had a cameo appearance in the 2019 Tamil film Chithiram Pesuthadi 2. Dwayne now says he wants to have a Bollywood opportunity.
He explained: “If the opportunity comes, then why not? I will never say no to an acting job.
“I enjoy doing different things. It is a challenge for me.
“When it comes to the entertainment side of things, I really look forward to it as it is what I enjoy.
“Also, I know, it has an impact on other people’s lives, that’s why I am always up for it.”
On why he wants to join Bollywood, Dwayne continued:
“I want to bridge the gap between my country. There are so many artistes in my country (Trinidad).
“They will love the opportunity to come and work here. I see myself as a vessel to try and bridge the gap between two countries that have a similar culture.”
If the Bollywood opportunity arises, Dwayne Bravo has already made a wishlist of A-list co-stars.
He revealed: “My all-time favourite is Shah Rukh. I definitely want to work with him one day.
“And then, Ranveer. I am a big fan of his. I remember, a few years back, he was supposed to perform at IPL, and he was doing rehearsals for it.
“When he saw me, he stopped his rehearsals just to come and say hi to me, and even did the Champion dance.”
Dwayne Bravo last played in the 2021 IPL for Chennai Super Kings, who won the league, defeating the Kolkata Knight Riders.
On the IPL, he admitted that adapting to the changes caused by the pandemic was not an easy thing to do.
He said: “At the start, adjusting to the bio-bubble, and getting tested for the virus every three days, seeing the world from the windows of the hotel, or when you are going for training or a match, was challenging.”
Elaborating on the difficulties, Dwayne continued:
“Now, the players have got accustomed to it, but we still have a lot to adjust and adapt to in this new normal.
“But going back to the stadium to play was a cherished experience itself.”
