Cricketers like Nassir Hussain, Brendon McCullun, Herschelle Gibbs, Kieron Pollard, Andrews Symonds, Kamran Akmal, Tilak Ratne Dilshan, Graham Gooch, Wasim Akram and Mathew Hayden Ex-cricket will be sharing screen space with Kumar in the scenes that show the cricket matches.
Tseries’ Bhushan Kumar said, “ Nikhil Advani was very keen that we do justice to the script; in script Akshay is playing for England and it is world cup that they are playing for. So it needed to have a lot of known faces to be seen with Akshay. That’s when we approached these guys, send them the scripts and got them on board.”
“Shooting with the cricketers was amazing, we had thought that Akshay would require a lot of practice and we might have to cheat and re create shots but he was amazing and playing like a pro with them,” added Kumar.
