Mumbai:

Leander Paes' performance on the tennis court has made Vishal Bhardwaj sure that the sportsman will be good on the big screen too! The filmmaker has decided to make a film with the tennis star who is already making his debut with "Rajdhani Express".

"What I feel is that he is such a fighter in the game that he will be good on screen too and I am 100 percent sure of that. So, I will write a script for him now," said Bhardwaj at the inauguration of a lawn tennis court here.

Even Paes hopes to work with Bhardwaj, known for films like "Maqbool", "Kaminey" and "7 Khoon Maaf".

"If I ever get a chance to work with him, it will be a great honour. I really hope that the day comes but before that I have to prove myself," said Paes.

"I want to prove that I can act well and hold my movie and give him a realistic opportunity to put me in his movies. I really look forward to that," added the 38-year-old tennis player whose debut "Rajdhani Express", directed by Ashok Kohli, also stars Paresh Rawal.

Paes, who dated Pardes actress Mahima Chaudhary, is married to Rhea Pillai and has a daughter.
