Kochi, July 12: Indian pacer S Sreesanth will be acting in a Malayalam film directed by Balachandra Kumar.
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 is currently titled 'Big Picture' and is being directed by Balachandra Kumar. The shooting will commence soon.
Sreesanth appeared for a guest role in noted Malayalam lyricist Kaithaparam Damodaran Namboodiri's film 'Mazhavillinattam vare' (Till the endge of rainbow) but his part was edited out after spot fixing scam broke out and the actor's involvement was the 'top story' everywhere.
