CHENNAI: Cricketer Dwayne Bravo from Chennai Super Kings, who is known for his fun on-field activities and his love for music and dance, expressed his interest to sing or even shake a leg in Kollywood or Bollywood films.
“I would love to sing in the Indian film industry. You know how I love to entertain from the way I dance in matches and my fans seem to like it. So, with India and particularly Chennai having my largest fan base, I would want to give back to them by entertaining them more,” says Bravo, dressed in a golden kurta after shaking a leg for the launch of his seventh new single Chalo Chalo, in collaboration with singer Nisha B.
Besides getting down on the roads and buying mangoes from vendors and trying to voice the dialogues of Rajinikanth earlier, the cricketer’s connect with the city has increased with him releasing his latest single in the city on Sunday.
On the occasion, Dwayne Bravo the cricketer became DJ Bravo (that’s how he was introduced), the entertainer dancing to the tunes of the single which is about Bravo’s love for an Indian girl. Flaunting his moves with ease, he says Calypso – the dance form of Africa — is similar to the dance in films and he would love to perform more in movies and is looking out for opportunities.
Similar to how anyone who is willing to enter the film industry has his favourites and inspirations, Bravo is no exception and looks up to Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone. “Everyone is a super star here, but to be more specific, I am a huge fan of the both of them and interestingly, both have been associated with cricket. SRK has KKR and Deepika was with the RCB for some time,” he adds.
Besides his plans to act in films and of course, more cricket, what would Dwayne like to do in the future? He is already planning for another single that would release after the IPL. It would be called Million Girls and would feature many cities in India including Mumbai and Chennai.
And all his singles will have happy music with beats and enjoyable lyrics. “I like happy music and I want to sing with my Carribean accent and would not want to try other genres such as romance. This is what I am comfortable doing,” says Dwayne, as a reply to his possible ventures in other genres (more particularly romance, because his singles seem to centre around the ladies).
