Cricketers and Movies - I

Cricket and Movies are two of the biggest religions in India. The popularity of these two can be gauged from the fact that the most popular celebrities, across the board, are primarily cricketers and movie stars. One look at the celebrities endorsements and this fact is confirmed. The kind of money the movie stars and cricketers are paid to for endorsements are mind-boggling.

There have been a few cricketers who have dabbled into movies, most of them rather unsuccessfully. Here is a look at some of the actors who have acted in movies.
