Mumbai: The pull factor of Bollywood has cast its magnetic spell on former boxing champion Mike Tyson. After acting in a music video for the film ‘Fool n Final’ for Firoz Nadiadwala, producer of “Fool n Final” has signed him up for a full length commercial film.
“Firoz has discussed a movie with me and we intend to work on it,” Tyson was quoted as saying.
Last month, he danced to Bollywood music at a two-day film shoot in Las Vegas for the movie which is a slapstick comedy is about two mob groups clashing over diamonds, which one gang tries to ship from the Middle East to India. Tyson plays himself in the music video.
He admitted that he was looking for something different to do and the script offered exiciting possibilities.
Tyson, who at age 20 became the youngest heavyweight boxing champion in history in 1986, said there were many similarities between acting and boxing. He said that both fields required focus, discipline and determination.
If his initiation into Bollywood is any indication, he sure seems determined to make a mark.
