West Indies swashbuckling all-rounder Andre Russell is not playing in the ongoing IPL since he is serving a year-long ban for violating an anti-doping code, but he has a surprise in store for fans.
Following the footsteps of his teammate Dwayne Bravo, Russell has signed a contract with LA-based Venus Entertainment Group for a music video.
“Cricket has always been my first love, but I am fond of singing and dancing too. We Jamaicans love music. It runs in our blood,” Mumbai Mirror quoted the Jamaican as saying.
Russell also wants to cast popular Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra or Deepika Padukone in the video.
“I even recorded the song at the same studio as Bieber. I will visit India later this month to see if I can rope in a Hindi actress for the video. I would love to feature Priyanka Chopra or Deepika Padukone in the single. Since I am not playing Cricket now, I thought it would make sense to utilize my time constructively. That’s how I came up with idea to put together a single,” he added.
Well, Deepika and Priyanka are two Bollywood divas, who have made a global name with their debut Hollywood movies. While Deepika’s XXX: The Return of Xander Cage has been released, Priyanka’s Baywatch will hit the screens in May.
