Disgraced pacer S Sreesanth will be acting in a Malayalam film, the shooting of which would begin soon.

Sreesanth, who was arrested by the 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, tentatively titled ‘Big Picture’ is being directed by Balachandra Kumar.

Sreesanth had done a guest role in noted Malayalam lyricist Kaithaparam Damodaran Namboodiri’s film ’Mazhavillinattam vare’ (Till the edge of a rainbow) but it was edited out after the spot fixing scam broke out.
