The quickie has not consented to the project, but if he agrees Sreesanth will not have to do any major homework on his role as he would be playing a cricketer, said director of the film Aashiq Abu.
"I am waiting for Sreesanth's confirmation. The film is in the preliminary stages. I had met him after his return from South Africa. The story was also read to him," the debutante director said.
"I hope to start the shooting once I get confirmation from Sreesanth. I know he is very busy. Lots of cricket is coming after the current Future Cup one-day series against Australia," Abu, who is currently working as an assistant to renowned Malayalam film Director Kamal, added.
The work on the script is in the final stages, he revealed, adding that the dialogues in the film will be written by his friend Bipin Chandran.
Abu said Sreesanth's role would be more than just a cameo.
"It will not be a guest role, but certainly an important role, which will have its influence on the story," he asserted.
Abu said Mamooty would play a Police Officer. Among other major actors, who are expected to be included are Kalabhavan Mani, Indrajit and Innocent, he said.
"I was planning to make the official announcement after October 1, after getting confirmation and dates from both Mammooty and Sreesanth," he said.
"Once I get the confirmation, I hope to start the work from next year," he added.
Sreesanth's family, however, has refused to say anything on the matter.
"Sreesanth is concentrating on the one-day series," a family member said.
Sreesanth has had his brush with the entertainment industry, when he penned a song 'Jago India', which was sung by his brother in-law and renowned playback singer Madhu Balakrishnan for an album 'Desh'.
