“I am trying my best to complete the film. We are running against time. If we are done with it we might screen it at this year's IIFA awards,” Anil told reporters on Thursday.
The 50-year-old was present in the capital for an event organised by Wizcraft to announce details of a charity cricket match that will be held in Colombo during the IIFA weekend starting June 3.
The proceeds of the charity match will go to a fund that will help people who were displaced during civil war in Sri Lanka.
Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan was also present at the event.
Asked if Anil was prepared to face Muralitharan's 'doosras', he told IANS: “Yes, I am ready. I will be nervous but since I am an actor I will not let it show on my face. I will keep a calm outlook.”
Any preparations for the cricket match? “I don't need any preparation. I am a good cricketer,” said the actor.
Anil was at his joyful best at the event and got along well with Muralitharan. He even tried to mimic the cricketer's bowling actions and expressions.
