Indian cricket team’s ex wicket keeper Kiran More will be seen playing himself on 'Tamanna'. He says, “The show has a beautiful thought behind it. So many talented sportswomen are lost in their daily responsibilities after they get married. My own sister (Shyama Bhosle), who was a cricketer before marriage, could not pursue her passion because she got involved with family duties. But then there are examples like Sania Mirza and Mithali Raj who have continued playing, which is very encouraging. So when they offered me to act in this show, I connected with it and agreed to do the role.” (Credits: Tanvi Trivedi)
