    Default Indian Cricketers Turned Actors

    Cricket is a great game as it provides a great deal of entertainment to lovers of the game. In case the cricketers fail to amuse you with their game, they can always resort to their Bollywood dream to entertain movie lovers.

    What we are talking about here is the concept of cricketers turning into actors. Given below is a list of those cricketers who have turned into actors as a follow-up to their successful/unsuccessful cricketing careers.

    Vinod Kambli

    Vinod Kambli shared a great rapport with Sachin Tendulkar and followed him into the Indian cricket team. He cricket journey was successful but short-lived with two double centuries and two centuries in seven tests. He stepped into Bollywood with the disastrous movie 'Annarth' in the year 2002 with Sanjay Dutt and Sunil Shetty as co-stars. He hasn't been seen in any other movie ever since.

    Sunil Gavaskar

    Considered as one of the most successful opening batsmen in test match history, Sunil Gavaskar was a major asset of the Indian team. Post his retirement, Gavaskar played the lead role in a Marathi film called Savli Premachi which did not receive much appreciation. He also made a guest-appearance in a Hindi movie called 'Maalamal' which starred Naseeruddin Shah.

    Angad Bedi

    Son of cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi, Angad was never able to match up to his father's success story as he could not be a part of the Indian team. He only played domestic cricket and played for Delhi. Soon enough, he turned towards modelling and hosting shows like 'Cook Na Kaho' and 'Emotional Atyachaar'.

    Ajay Jadeja

    He was a regular player for the Indian team and was quite successful in his outing before he was charged with match-fixing. The 5 year ban slapped on him overshadowed his achievements and he too came knocking on Bollywood's door. He made his debut with a movie caled 'Khel' alongside Celina Jaitley, Sunil Shetty and Sunny Deol. The film bombed at the box-office and Jadeja now fulfills his time as a cricket analyst and commentator.
