Cricketer Shaun Tait to make Bollywood debut?
'Kai Po Che!' is the big screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's book 'The 3 Mistakes of My Life'. It features Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh and Rajkumar Yadav in key roles.
Since cricket is an integral part of the film, production company UTV Motion Pictures is on the lookout to cast a prominent international cricketer to cast.
It has already roped in Indian bowler Ashish Nehra to coach Sushant for his role of a cricket enthusiast in the film.
"Ashish suggested Shaun's name when the makers were brainstorming on who to cast for the part. But unlike Ashish, Shaun will actually play a prominent role in the film. UTV is in final talks with Shaun, who has shown interest in the film," said a source.
Manish Hariprasad, creative director, studios, Disney-UTV, confirmed the news, saying: "Abhishek Kapoor wanted a well-known international fast bowler for the climax. And Abhishek's good friend Ashish put us in touch with Shaun. We're in discussions with him, and hope to have him on board soon."
However, Tait will only do the film if his shooting schedule doesn't clash with his commitments towards the Australian team.
"Cricket will always come first for him. He liked the script and wants to do the film, but he will only give them a go-ahead if his timings work out," says the source.
UTV is working on the shooting schedule accordingly.
