Ever since Australian cricketer David Warner expressed his intent to play for the next 12 months and then will decide on his retirement from International cricket, multiple future plans popping up. Warner seems interested in commentary as a future plan but OTT platform Netflix has come up with a rather entertaining one for the left-hand swashbuckling batsman.
Reacting to a tweet about Warner’s part-time commentary stint with the Fox Sports, NetflixIndia’s official Twitter handle tweeted, “If David Warner retires from cricket, it’s only apt that he begins starring in Telugu movies.”
Warner loves Indian cinema and often shares Instagram reels and TikTok videos where he enacts Telugu and Hindi film songs and dialogues. One of his reels has him returning to Allu Arjun and the actor’s blockbuster Pushpa: The Rise as he recreated a famous dialogue. Film’s handle and many of his colleagues had reacted to the reel.
Since creating Tik Tok videos of Telugu artists, the 33-year-old cricketer has earned enormous recognition in Telugu circles as well. He has already stated that he is a major follower of Mahesh Babu. Notably, Warner has also created a Tik Tok video based on Mahesh Babu’s iconic speech from the flick Pokiri.
Meanwhile, recently while doing commentary, Warner said, “Look people have already been talking about my retirement, but another 12 months to go and we’ll see how we go from there”.
“Over these next 12 months I’ll probably do some part-time (commentary) stuff, wherever I’m needed or wherever I’m available I’ll help out as much as I can,” he added.
Warner further said, “But first and foremost it’s about getting a win here and then progressing through the next 12 months.”
