Former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batter and West Indian cricket legend Chris Gayle has expressed his admiration for Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone. The swashbuckling batsman has further expressed his desire to work alongside her in an item number.

During the launch of his recent music video ‘Oh Fatima’ with Arko alongside friends, Gayle revealed that he fancies to have Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone as his dance partner in an item song.

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

Revealing about his music career, Gayle revealed that Covid-19 induced lockdown brought him closer to music.

“It all started during the Covid-19 pandemic when we all were locked in our houses. A friend of mine said let’s do a song together. He turned up at my house and we did a song together. I was so fascinated by it and the best part was people in Jamaica accepted it,” the flamboyant cricketer said.

“Then I recorded another song and eventually setup my own studio at my home and started collaborating with people from the music field. At no point in my cricket career I had imagined I would ever venture into singing,” he added with a smile.
