Film industry and cricket share a very close relationship in our country. We have seen a lot of cricketers having affairs with film stars. Cricket stars like Virat, Yuvraj, Harbhajan, Zaheer and others even married film celebrities. But none of the cricketers succeeded when they tried to become film stars.
At a time when even out film stars are struggling to find the audience for their films, former Indian team off-spinner and current player in Chennai Super Kings, Harbhajan Singh decided to try his luck in the show business. He announced a film titled 'Friendship'. Despite a catchy title, people are wondering whether he will become successful as a hero or not.
Controversial cricketer Sreesanth acted as a hero and tasted failure and even Sachin's biopic did an average business. We have to see if Harbhajan entertains the audience in theatres or limit himself to OTT problems. Let us wait and see what the future holds for this Punjabi off-spinner.
