( femalefirst.co.uk ) - Mike Tyson wants to become a Bollywood star. The former boxing world champion claims Bollywood producer Firoz Nadiadwala has approached him with a film script.
He said: "Firoz has discussed a movie with me. We seriously intend to work towards it."
Tyson, 40, danced to Bollywood music at a two-day shoot in Las Vegas last month for a music video to promote the Nadiadwala produced film 'Fool N Final', about a diamond heist. Tyson plays himself in the promo, due for release later this month.
The controversial pugilist said: "I was in that phase when I didn't mind trying out something different. The script seemed very interesting, with lots of excitement thrown in." Tyson believes there are similarities between acting and fighting in the ring. He claimed: "In both the fields, in order to survive and triumph, you need focus and to be highly disciplined and determined."
Tyson is facing charges of drug possession and driving under the influence of drugs for an arrest in Scottsdale last year and had to be given special dispensation by a judge in Phoenix to appear in the video.
