Former Australian cricketer Brett Lee donned a desi avatar, as he shot for a song sequence for his film UnIndian, along side actor Tannishtha Chatterjee. Lee wrapped up the shoot for the cross-cultural comedy last week. An Anupam Sharma directorial, the film highlights the complexities faced by the Indian diaspora abroad.
“We are all excited and prepping up for this final number composed by Salim-Sulaiman, especially because the number has some interesting twists and turns. Brett sports a traditional Indian costume,” says Sharma.
It seems that 37-year-old Lee did quite an impressive job of dancing, too. “His love for India and the ease with which he takes on Indian customs is the reason why many call him a de facto Indian,” Sharma adds.
