Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar is reportedly considering an offer to act in Indian films.

The Rawalpindi Express, who earlier had turned down a role in Mahesh Bhatt's film "Gangster", has changed his mind.

"A film director is coming to meet me in Bangalore when we go there for the final Test later this week," Akhtar told reporters here.

Akhtar also said that it was entirely hid decision to play the Kolkata Test.

"The team management didn't force it on me," he added. (ANI)
