Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir, who was banned for spot-fixing, has decided to try his luck in the film industry and agreed to do a film titled ‘Blind Love’.

"Cricket remains my first love and passion, and whenever I am allowed to play I will be the first to grab the chance," Amir said.

"But in the meantime I have become frustrated doing nothing and agreed to do this film in which my love interest will be from India," he added.

According to Amir, he agreed to do the film because he found the script interesting when the film's producer narrated the story to him.

"It will be a while before the film goes on floors but I have given them my availability," he said.

The left arm pacer's cricket career came to a halt in September 2010 when he was suspended by the International Cricket Council for his role in spot-fixing during the fourth Test against England at Lord’s. His teammates -- Muhammad Asif and Salman Butt -- were also suspended by the ICC.

In February, 2011 the anti-corruption tribunal also banned them for a minimum of five years for the offence.

Amir had some much-needed support from Indian batting great Rahul Dravid, who feels it would be 'great' if the youngster manages to make a comeback after serving a five-year ban for spot-fixing.
