Former South African star opener Herschelle Gibbs has been offered a role in a Bollywood film. Revealing the details in his autobiography ‘To the Point’, Gibbs says, 'A totally unexpected surprise came my way recently when I was offered a role in a Bollywood movie that will start filming at the end of May next year. I'm not sure what the part is or what I'm supposed to do, but my agent has told me it's very good money for only a day's work.”
Without giving any further detail, Gibbs added that he would not like to play a negative character and would first find out more about the role. 'Playing a bad-boy cricketer who gets involved in match-fixing probably won't be the smartest career move,' the opener quipped.
After staying away from India for about five years because of fears of being arrested by the Indian police who wanted to question him about his role in the Hansie Cronje match-fixing saga in 2000, Gibbs would now want to go back to India.
