Everybody knows that Dwayne Bravo rocks a mean Gangnam style. Turns out, the all-rounder isn’t bad when it comes to Madras-style koothu as well. The proof — a brief demonstration on stage with the crew of the film Ula here on Sunday. The charismatic CSK player, who will be putting on his dancing shoes for a promotional song for Ula on his birthday today, wants to dance to fellow cricketer Brett Lee’s tunes someday. City Express caught up with the West Indian for a chat.

So you really want to work with Brett Lee, outside of cricket?

Yes! Brett and I spoke about it when we played for the Syndey Sixers in Australia two years ago. But nothing came out of it. I don’t think it’s too late though. Hopefully he can sing and I can dance, because, well, he has the voice!

Are you going to be bringing your on-field moves before camera as well?

Yeah definitely! That’s my trademark and I think that’s what my fans love and want to see as well. I guess I’ve got to be myself and do some moves.

So you’re going to be spending your birthday dancing in Chennai?

Yes, it’s a very special day for me because I’m doing what I love. I think it’s great that I can spend my birthday in India.

Do the boys in the CSK dressing room know?

Initially, I wanted to keep it to myself, keep it quiet. (I) didn’t want any of the boys to know. Ashwin found out first. After that it was Vijay. I guess the news will always travel fast.

Will you take this up seriously once you’re done with cricket?

Maybe. A sportsman’s careet is always shortlived and who knows what will life after cricket will be? Right now cricket is my priority and will always be. But I also love to entertain and I really look forward to this song. And I think I can dance better than I can act, so why not?

Have you watched any Tamil films?

I’m not the type to go out and watch movies, especially when I’m on cricket duty. I tend to stay in. But now that I’m doing this, I should probably go out and catch some movies, yeah.

Have you learnt any Tamil?

Well, I know Vanakkam. (Laughs). This is a great opportunity to pick up some Tamil and I’m going to do my best
