Former Indian cricketer Kiran More will do a cameo on TV show 'Tamanna'. He says his family convinced him to take up acting.

The Star Plus show is about a woman cricket aspirant. Featuring Anuja Sathe as the protagonist Dharaa Solanki, "Tamanna" is a finite series which challenges the mentality that a woman’s dreams come with an expiry date.

"The story and concept of the show is very unique and unusual, a kind of fresh breath of air on television industry. It was my family who apprised me about a show on a woman’s dream of becoming a cricketer and after that I just glued onto the show and kept myself updated about the progress in Dharaa’s (character essayed by Anuja) life," More said in a statement.

Another reason behind taking up the show is that its makers are his friends Ajinkya and Abhinay Deo.

He said: "Ajinkya is a dear friend. And when he asked me for the role, I obviously couldn’t say no."Talking about his role, he said: "I come at a point when Dharaa is gearing up for an important cricket match. I see her playing and come to know about her potential, further motivating her more to chase her dreams despite all troubles in her life."
