What he said:
“Bollywood actors sing and groove. I know my limitations. I don’t sing, I don’t dance, nor do I have the looks of a hero — it’s zero out of three for me.”
Former South African cricketer and Mumbai Indians fielding coach is not Bollywood hero material.
Rhodes was celebrated for his dare-devilry on the field but the idea of appearing in an Indian pot-boiler gives him the heebie-jeebies.
Rhodes disclosed his eagerness to meet model Poonam Pandey:
“A lot of people were waiting to see the show that she was going to put on for the Indian team. I, too, had put my hand up for that. If she needs a little practice or wants someone to advise her, I’d be happy to help… as a father figure.”
What he really meant:
“I can fly, though. I wonder why Shah Rukh Khan didn’t come calling for ‘Ra.One’.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“I’m all jaunty about acting.”
