NEW DELHI: Australian spin legend Shane Warne has said he has been offered roles in Bollywood films and that he would consider acting now he is retired from cricket.

Warne devoted the final chapter of his sparkling career to the Indian Premier League (IPL) as captain of the Rajasthan Royals, and said he had developed a deep love of the country.

“I've been getting offers. If something interesting comes up, let's see,” Warne, 41, told the Hindustan Times on Monday.

“I love India's culture, the craziness of everyday life and the passion of its people. I will certainly be here often enough.”

Warne's final game was a 10-wicket victory over Sachin Tendulkar's Mumbai Indians on Friday.

His plans for the future also include designing a clothing range for young girls, to be marketed in India.

“My daughter is excited to join in,” he said.

He did not say whether his girlfriend, British model and swimwear designer Elizabeth Hurley, would be on hand to help create the fashion label.
