Sharma: Pi role was a blessing

Suraj Sharma has got a taste for the movies

Life Of Pi actor Suraj Sharma has credited director Ang Lee with setting him on a path to continue with a career in movies.

Sharma told The Times of India in an interview that getting to work with the Oscar-winning director was a blessing.

"The amount I learned and did was awesome. Ang gave me a path. Before that, I didn't even know what I would do in life," he was quoted as saying. After making the movie: "I know I want to tell stories," he said.

"I don't know whether I just want to act or be behind the camera, holding the camera or just being the boom director. But I want to be on the sets. It has to be something to do with cinema," he said.

Suraj, 20, said his next Hollywood film will be Million Dollar Arm. The film revolves around a real-life reality show that searched for potential Major League Baseball pitchers among Indian cricketers.
