Former Pakistani all rounder Wasim Akram doesn't want to act. Since he looks so comfortable judging the dance reality show Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena on Colors, it seemed that producers would come calling and acting would be the next step for him. But he has made it clear that he's only open to those offers in television where no acting is involved.
He's reportedly said, "Acting is a difficult profession. I have seen cricketers making a debut in films and then doing the vanishing act. I will be truthful that I can't do it." That seems to be quite a wise decision since we all know how cricketers have fared as actors! Sandip Patil, Salil Ankola, Ajay Jadeja, Vinod Kambli and most others have fallen flat on their faces while trying to act.
Currently the participant cricketers of the show Dinesh Kartik, Nikhil Chopra, Harbhajan Singh, Sreesanth etc seem to be enjoying the swinging and dancing big time. And the biter truth is that not everyone's too good at it! Chances are they might get carried away and start thinking of acting soon. Hopefully then Akram's wise piece of advice would bring them back to reality!
