New Delhi:

After an impressive outing in the Hockey Olympic qualifier, ace drag-flicker Sandeep Singh is all set to showcase his acting skills on the silver screen.

Sandeep, apparently has done a guest appearance in a Punjabi movie, 'Aaj de Ranjhe', directed by Bollywood cinematographer Manmohan Singh.

Sandeep, who scored staggering 16 goals in the recently-concluded Olympic qualifiers, including five goals in the final match, which helped India book a berth in the upcoming London Games, said he enjoyed working in a movie.

"The main lead in the film, Gurpreet Guggi, is my friend and I could not turn down his request," said Sandeep.

"I really enjoyed the experience (of working in films). I have a small role where I am playing Sandeep Singh only," he added.

Asked if he has any Bollywood aspirations also, Sandeep said, "Hockey is my first love and I devote most of my time to hockey only. But if I get time I won't mind working in films too."

Former hockey captain Dilip Tirkey had earlier featured in an Oriya film.
