Mumbai: They might have been arch rivals on the cricket field but former Australian pacer Brett Lee is eager to watch a biopic on cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar.

39-year-old Lee, who is making his acting debut with Australian film “Unindian” is excited about biopic on Tendulkar titled “Sachin: A Billion Dreams”.

The upcoming Indian biographical film is helmed by James Erskine and it stars the cricket maestro himself.

“It’s great to see films on cricketers’ life and journey. I am looking forward to see Sachin Tendulkar biopic. I like that more. He is a great player and a nice human being,” Brett told PTI.

Bollywood filmmakers seem to be fascinated with cricketers’ life as movies are being made on them.

A biopic on former Indian captain Mohammed Azharuddin titled “Azhar” was released earlier this year with Emraan Hashmi playing the lead role.

There is also a biopic on M S Dhoni which has Sushant Singh Rajput essaying role of the limited overs skipper.

Ask Brett about a making a biopic on himself, he says, “No not now. It is not exciting for me at the moment. I am focused about ‘Unindian”.

Directed by Anupam Sharma “Unindian”, featuring Brett and Tannishtha Chatterjee, is set to release in India on August 19.
