Chris Gayle says the Covid lockdown has made him turn to music


MUMBAI, May 23 (IANS) Former West Indies cricket captain and record-breaking batsman Chris Gayle has said he would love to dance with Deepika Padukone to a song.

After releasing his music video with Arko, “Oh Fatima”, in the company of friends, particularly playback singer Shaan, the cricketer said that if he ever gets a chance to dance with a Bollywood actress, it will be Deepika Padukone.

“I met her in person,” said Gayle. “Deepika Padukone, very nice lady. I would like to dance with Deepika Padukone in a song.”

When asked how his music career took off, Gayle replied: “It all started during the pandemic when we were all locked in our homes. A friend of mine said let’s do a song together. He came over to my house and we did a song together.”

“I was very impressed with it and the best part was that people in Jamaica accepted it. Then I recorded another song and eventually set up my own studio at home and started collaborating with people from the music business. At no point in my cricket career could I have imagined that I would I’ll venture out anytime to sing.”[myownstudioatmyownhomeandstartedcollaboratingwithpeoplefromthemusicfieldAtnopointinmycricketcareerIhadimaginedIwouldeverventureintosinging][myownstudioatmyownhomeandstartedcollaboratingwithpeoplefromthemusicfieldAtnopointinmycricketcareerIhadimaginedIwouldeverventureintosinging”
