Cricketer Andre Russell to debut in Bollywood

Mumbai: West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell is following in the footsteps of fellow cricketer Dwayne Bravo and set to make his debut in music and films.

Bravo's songs "Champion", "Jaegerbomb" and "Trip Abhi Baki Hai", were successful in India.

Russell, 28, is launching his single which has been produced by GeminiMusiq based in Los Angeles who was a producer on Bieber's recent album "Sorry" this year.

"Yes it is true that I am exploring a career in the performing arts. I will be launching my first international music video with main focus in India this year and then maybe explore acting in Bollywood films," Russell said in a statement.

Venus Entertainment Group who signed up Bravo and successfully launched "Champion" has also signed up Russell for management and building a global brand.
