Pace bowler S Sreesanth is excited with the offer to act alongside Malayalam superstar Mammoty but said his final consent for the movie will depend on whether he can spare time for the project.
"It is great to act in a film in which Mammoty is donning the lead role," the 24-year old quickie said.
Sreesanth, however, said giving his nod for the role will depend on the deal.
"If I get a good deal, I will sign the deal."
Sreesanth, who arrived in Kochi for the second one-day international between India and Australia on Tuesday, said he plays cricket with love and passion and his priority will always be the game.
"I love the game and am enjoying myself. I play with passion."
The discussion on the proposed film in which Sreesanth will be donning the role of a cricketer was progressing. Malayalam megastar Mammootty will play the key role of a police officer.
The director of the proposed film Aashiqu Abu had earlier told PTI that 'Sreesanth will not be playing a guest role. But his role will definitely have influence on the story'.
Abu had said Sreesanth had not consented so far and once he (Abu) gets the confirmation, shooting will start next year.
