After impressing us with his bowling prowess on field, Australian cricketer Brett Lee is set to show his acting chops
on the big screen. The pace bowler makes his Bollywood debut with ‘UnIndian’, a romcom co-starring Tannishtha
Directed by Anupam Sharma, it charts the unlikely romance between an Indian single mother Meera (Chatterjee)
and Australian teacher Will (Lee) that sends her family and the Indian expat community into a tizzy.
Besides Gulshan Grover and Supriya Pathak in pivotal roles, the film also has special appearances by Australian
and Indian artistes including Pallavi Sharda, Akash Khurana, Tiriel More, Tammy Bartaiya and John Howard.
Actor-producer Viveck Vaswani is the senior advisor for its Indian release and distribution.
Produced by Lisa Duff, Nitika Thakur and Sharma, the movie has been funded by Australia India Film Fund &
Screen Australia and is being presented by Krian Media, which creates, produces, markets and distributes content
across the world.
Its founder and CEO, Ranjit Thakur, says, “‘UnIndian’ is a romcom crossover film which will be loved by the Indian
audience. The humour adds great value to the story and Brett is outstanding. It is different from the regular content
on screen and is just the flavour we need. We are proud to be associated with this project.”
While the trailer is out on social media, the film will release across India on August 5.
