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.

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.
