Former cricketer Sreesanth is set to make his Bollywood debut in Pooja Bhatt's next production venture and the filmmaker says the decision to cast him was quick and instinctive. In the film, which has been titled 'Cabaret', the former India pacer will be seen donning the role of a Malayali mentor to the movie's leading lady Richa Chadda's character, who is a dancer. "I met Sreesanth at his home. I knew that he would be able to play the role of a Malayali guy, who mentors a dancer. I cast him on my instinct. Initially we had thought of casting someone who is older but when I saw him I felt he is perfect for the role. The character is very close to his persona. I have asked him to retain his Malayali accent. Sreesanth is a natural performer, he is camera friendly and I have a gut feeling that the film will do him good," Pooja said.
