Former Australian cricketer Brett Lee has done Bollywood dancing in a track, composed by Indian music duo Salim-Sulaiman, in the Australian feature film ‘UnIndian’.
The cross-cultural comedy is the first production of the newly established Australia India Film Fund (AIFF).
‘UnIndian’ is directed by Anupam Sharma and also stars Indian actress Tannishtha Chatterjee.
“We were all excited prepping up for this final number composed by Salim Sulaiman. Specially because the number has some interesting twists and turns, and Brett in a traditional Indian costume. Brett took time out from his World Cup commentary a week before the big India Australia match.
“His love for India and the ease with which he takes on Indian customs is the reason why many call him a de facto Indian. To see if we managed to convince Brett to do a Bollywood Thumka his fans will have to wait and see the film,” Sharma said in a statement.
The shooting of the film has wrapped up and it is set to premiere later this year.
