The cast and the crew of director Anubhav Sinha's Cash were in for a treat when South African cricket team captain Graeme Smith visited the sets in Cape Town and showed keen interest in Hindi films.

"Smith was excited about meeting the stars. He knows all about Bollywood because Indian films are very popular in South Africa. But he was very curious to know about the process of filmmaking in Bollywood. And the stars and Anubhav Sinha satisfied his curiosity," said a source with access to the film unit.

Anubhav is a huge cricket fan and he was very excited about meeting Smith.

The key actors in the film, Riteish Deshmukh and Zayed Khan, who are hardcore cricket fans, joined Anubhav in giving Smith a warm welcome and had an interesting chat with the cricketer. And later they all played cricket!

Cash is being shot in collaboration with the South African Tourism department.
