Former Australian pacer Brett Lee is all set to make his film debut with UnIndian, a first feature of the recently established Australia India Film Fund (AIFF) that will go into production in October in Sydney. The announcement of the same was made by visiting Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott in India yesterday.

The Australia India Film Fund which was established in 2013 will invest in Australian films with Indian themes for a global audience and UnIndian will be its debut film project. Apart from Brett Lee, UnIndian will also star Indian actress Tannishtha Chatterjee of Brick Lane fame.

Talking about the movie, Brett Lee said, “I am honoured to have been cast as a lead in the first Australia India Film Fund film, privileged to be working with Anupam Sharma and humbled to be working with an actress of the caliber of Tannishtha Chatterjee.”

Tannishtha Chatterjee sounded elated at being a part of this prestigious project. Said Tannishtha, “Australia has always been a very special country for me. It makes me very happy to play the lead in the Australian Indian Film Fund film UNINDIAN. I love the script and I am super excited to work with Anupam Sharma and his entire team. And Brett Lee ... What can I say? Look forward to having a blast, Brett!”

Speaking about the Indo-Australian film initiative, CEO of the Australia India Film Fund, Devendra Gupta said, “AIFF was formed with the vision of creating high quality cross cultural productions. Over the next few years we intend to inject significant funds into the Australian film and television industry, with specific focus on cross-cultural stories. As Indian Australians we see it as our responsibility to both celebrate the values of and strengthen ties between the two countries.”

UnIndian revolves around the life of single Australian mother of Indian origin Meera (Tannishtha) and the dilemma she faces when she is regularly encouraged by her family to meet ‘nice Indian men’. When Meera comes across Will (Brett Lee) love is the last thing on her mind. Highlighting the complexities of Indian diaspora and wooing another from a different culture, UnIndian is being billed as a romantic comedy with a lot of heart!

Directed by Anupam Sharma, UnIndian is being presented by Devendra Gupta and Yateender Gupta and produced by Anupam Sharma and Lisa Duff.
