Kapil Dev to do a cameo for Sony's 'CID'

MUMBAI: Former cricketer and MAX brand ambassador Kapil Dev will be seen in Sony Television's detective series CID sometime in mid-October.

Telecast on Fridays at 10:30 pm, CID is one of Sony's best selling shows produced by BP Singh and Pradeep Uppoor.

According to industry sources, Dev portrays a murder suspect in his two-episode role. The 80s all-rounder has agreed to do the cameo as a one-off stint and a part of his obligations as brand ambassador of Sony.

The production house says that Dev was roped in for the role because they wanted an international icon with tremendous mass following. They also said they were impressed with his anchoring capabilities in Kapil Dil Se and thought that he fitted the bill.

In the episodic story, Dev gets mixed up in the murder of a man found dead behind the golf course where he is playing. The bullet in the dead man's body is analysed to have been shot from gun found in Dev's golf bag. Coincidentally, the murdered man's mobile also reveals that he had made a call to Dev, minutes before dying.

In the ensuing CID grilling, Dev is expected to act like an angry, defiant celebrity defending himself against accusations.

With similar bitter experience in the past Dev seemed ideal for the role, production team say.

Dev has about 12 scenes in the whole story. The episodes have been shot at Royal Palms (Goregaon) and Jucaso Mills (Sakinaka). From the famous 'Palmolive da jawaab nahi' to a television cameo, may be the ace cricketer-turned pro-golfer might want to switch lanes again!
