Veteran cricketer Mohinder Amarnath to feature in John- Varun starrer Dishoom

They say the two things that always work in India are films and cricket. And sometimes when these two meet, it surely makes big news. While there are multiple films coming out this year based on the lives of Indian cricketers, the popular Indian cricketers have often featured in Bollywood movies as well.

While in the past cricketers like Suniel Gavaskar (Malaamal), Ajay Jadeja (Khel), Kapil Dev (Iqbal, Mujhse Shaadi Karogii and Stumped) Yograj Singh (Bhaag Milkha Bhaag) and others have featured in films, among the new generation of cricketers, Sreesanth is all set to make his Bollywood debut with Cabaret.

And now, the news is that veteran cricketer Mohinder Amarnath too will be seen on the silver screen. In fact, we have learnt that Mohinder Amarnath has been roped in by the makers of the Varun Dhawan – John Abraham starrer Dishoom to feature in the film. Apparently, Amarnath will be playing himself in Dishoom and will be shown as the coach of the Indian cricket team. We also hear that Amarnath recently shot a few scenes for Dishoom at the DY Patil stadium in Mumbai a couple of days ago.

Dishoom that is produced by Sajid Nadiadwala starring John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez is directed by Rohit Dhawan. While the trailer of the film will come out on June 1, the film itself will hit screens on July 29.
