The film, slated to release on February 11, has Akshay playing a pace bowler from England. He’s a Punjabi and therefore his proud father (Rishi Kapoor) is against him playing for the goras.

Now, since the film revolves around cricket, director Nikhil Advani and producer Bhushan Kumar decided to rope in real cricketers for authenticity sake.

We hear that the film will feature international players like Nasir Hussain, Brendon McCullum, Herschelle Gibbs, Kieron Pollard, Andrews Symonds, Kamran Akmal, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Graham Gooch, Wasim Akram and Matthew Hayden.

“In the film, Akshay is playing for England and it is the World Cup that they are playing for. So it needed to have a lot of known faces to be seen with Akshay. That’s when we approached these players, sent them the script and got them on board,” Bhushan is quoted as saying by a news agency.

While most of the players will be seen on the field with Akshay, a few, like Nasir Hussain, will commentate.
