Panaji: Former India cricketer and actor S Sreesanth, who has featured in the recently released film ‘Cabaret’, brushed aside Monday mockery about his ambition to work with acclaimed director Steven Spielberg. The fast bowler said people had also mocked him in the past when he had said that he wanted to play for the country.
“I did say I want to work with Steven Spielberg. Yes, because my dreams are… If you ask my friends, they would tell you that when I was in the Kerala under-19 squad, if someone asked me what I want to do, I always said, ‘I want to play for the country’… and they would have laughed,” Sreesanth told reporters here.
“I have already done two movies in Hindi, I have done Southern movies, and I would love to work in Hollywood also,” Sreesanth added.
The banned cricketer, who is looking to acting as a career, also said he would enrol at the well-known New York Film Academy to fulfil his Hollywood goals.
“I would love to work with him (Spielberg). I would love to star in some English series on Netflix or Amazon or wherever. But I will go to the New York Film Academy to help improve my acting skills,” Sreesanth informed.
The cricketer-turned-actor also informed that in 2019, he had his hands full as far as his acting career is concerned.
