Cricket and cinema makes for a potent mix
And that’s why the Celebrity Cricket League 2012 has been a success, feels Cineswami
India’s twin passions are cinema and cricket and not necessarily in that order. Therefore it might have seemed like a simple task to blend the two. The resulting films, with the notable exception of Ashutosh Gowariker’s Oscar-nominated Lagaan, starring the peerless Aamir Khan, and Venkat Prabhu’s joyous paean to galli cricket, Chennai 600028, have been colossal disappointments. Aamir himself tasted failure under the stewardship of the late, great Dev Anand in Awwal Number and there have been several other duds like Kabhi Ajnabi The, Meerabai Not Out, Hattrick and so on.
All these happened when cricket was included in cinema. When the reverse occurred, that is when cinema came to cricket, the results were more positive. The Celebrity Cricket League comprising teams of film people from the Bollywood, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Bengali film industries kicked off last year. Unlike their cinema, and like their IPL counterparts, the celebrity teams proved bereft of imagination when it came to naming their teams, thus saddling us with Karnataka Bulldozers, Kerala Strikers, Telugu Warriors, Chennai Rhinos, Mumbai Heroes and Bengal Tigers.

Nupur Mehta admits to dating Dilshan!
Ex-Bollywood starlet Nupur Mehta recently claimed that cricketers are not part of her friends’ circle when she was accused of fixing the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 semifinal, but now she has revealed that she used to date top Sri Lankan cricketer Tillakaratne Dilshan.
She said that she stayed at the Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington in 2009 when several cricketers participating in the T20 tournament were also staying there, but she had no idea who they were and in which room they were. The only cricketer she knew for sure was Dilshan as she was dating him at that time. She insists that there is nothing wrong in knowing a cricketer and it’s unfair to base an allegation on any former relationships of hers. We agree, but then Nupur, why did you not mention it the first time around? Why did you stick to saying you don’t know any cricketers at all?Click here to read more
