Brett Lee has smashed Indian hearts a number of times wIth the missiles he hurled at the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and company to lay India low often enough. After all, he was the fastest bowler in the world once. But since then his profile has changed. From a monster bowler that batsmen quaked in their boots to face to a singer/guitar player, and even an actor who cracks jokes! Yes, the man is no longer the fearsome Lee and in fact wants to turn into a lovable opposite of his previous daunting avatar. What is all this gibberish we are spouting?
Well Brett Lee’s UnIndian movie is set to release in India and the man is desperately seeking, no, no more wickets or batsmen’s toes or heads for that matter, but eye-balls to promote the film here. It is a comedy and where else would he go but on the omnipresent laugh-a-second The Kapil Sharma Show and Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain!.
Ever the dedicated, focussed person, Brett Lee has been prepping himself up for this (Un)Indian campaign. So, he has hit the road running and has already made arrangements to appear on the popular comedy TV show Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain on the 27th of the month and then crown it all with The Kapil Sharma Show. Here is what the host of this show posted: KAPIL @KapilSharmaK9 – “He is a singer.,he is a guitarist., he is a cricketer., ok fine,in short today shooting with the great @BrettLee_58 #tkss”.
Unindian movie is directed by Anupam Sharma, who is Australia-based, and amongst the cast are Gulshan Grover, Supriya Pathak and Nicholas Brown apart from Tannishtha Chatterjee. The movie takes a close but humorous look at an Australian teacher and a single Indian mother as they make their way through a troublesome world that annoyingly stands in the way of their relationship. UnIndian release date is August 19.
In her reaction to IANS on the subject, Saumya Tandon of Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain! fame said, “Glad to hear he is coming on the sets of our show. I have heard that he plays the guitar beautifully, so I am hoping to hear him strum for me.”
