The famed Indian leg spinner will reportedly play a cameo in a Bollywood movie.

Cricketers turning to acting in films is not new. We have seen Syed Kirmani, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Vinod Kambli, Ajay Jadeja and Navjyot Siddhu making appearances in movies, some of them even playing significant roles.



Now it is Anil Kumble who is set for a cameo in Hindi movie Mirabai - Not Out , to be directed by award winning Marathi filmmaker Chandrakant Kulkarni.

Although the film is not entirely based on cricket, the game still forms an important part of the story's backdrop.

In the movie, Kumble will play himself. He will appear in a scene with Mandira Bedi , who plays a cricket fan.

'Mirabai - Not Out' will mark the acting debut of Ejaz Khan. The film will also have Anupam Kher and Mahesh Manjrekar playing huge cricket enthusiasts.

To be produced by Pritish Nandy's company, the film will go on the floors by December end. The makers of the movie are aiming to release it just before the world cup next year.

At present, Anil Kumble is with Indian cricket team in South Africa for India's ongoing series with the Proteas.
