After finding success on the cricket field, Harbhajan Singh and Irfan Pathan are ready to take a new challenge and act in a South Indian movie. It may be an opportunity to revive their off field career after being away from cricket. Irfan currently plays for Jammu and Kashmir but only appears in handful of matches while Harbhajan only plays for CSK in IPL.
Harbhajan and Irfan are set to make their movie debut in a tamil movie. Film critic Taran Adarsh has shared this information on Twitter. He told that Irfan is going to play an important role in a Tamil movie and will work alongside Chiyaan Vikram. The name of the film has not been decided yet.

On the other hand, cricketer Harbhajan Singh is also starting his new innings from Tamil cinema. Bhajji, who has previously acted in Punjabi films, has given information about his Tamil film via Twitter. Cinema and acting may been an easy task for him as he is married to Bollywood actress Geeta Basra.
