Am delighted with their response. #CabaretOnZEE5 #ShowMustGoOn Bhatt (@PoojaB1972) January 8, 2019”In my first Hindi film, working in the presence of Mahesh Bhatt, Richa Chadha, Gulshan Grover… I am really happy that way,” the cricketer turned actor said.According to him, acting and arts was a much natural choice for him after cricket as he loves sports and acting equally.”Stepping into the world of acting was natural to me I guess because, in my family, so many people are into arts, music and acting. In fact, I was the only black sheep that way, who became a sportsman,” he said.”My father acted in Malayalam films, sister is an actress in Malayalam TV shows, my brother is a musician, my brother-in-law is also a singer,” Sreesanth added.”I always loved the cinema, but I loved cricket too. I think in this short span of life, I have managed to do everything that I love,” he expressed.”I am lucky that I have got the opportunity to act in different languages. My latest film Team 5 released in Malayalam, Telugu and Tamil. I have got a Marathi film offer too,” he added.When asked how does he deal with the new work culture in the entertainment world, he said, ”Every profession has a different discipline. As a sportsman, I had a different discipline — practice, gymming, eating…but even when I am acting in a film, eight hours’ rest is important because if my body is not well rested, it shows in my eyes and my skin looks dehydrated.” Cricketer turned actor Sreesanth with Harbhajan”The camera captures all the flaws. So I am living a controlled life here too…Having said that, yes I miss the cricket ground,” Cabaret actor said.When asked if he was the best entertainer in the dressing room of the Indian cricket team during his time, he said, “No no, Bhajji pa (Harbhajan Singh) is the best, I would say, followed by Yuvi pa (Yuvraj Singh). I was good at the party scene, I used to dance.”ALSO SEE: Pooja Bhatt on working with Sunny Leone in Jism 2: She is not a born actor.
