A star studded cricket team comprising the likes of Aamir Khan and Salman Khan will be playing a Twenty20 cricket match at Mumbai's Brabourne Stadium on May 1,against a team of physically handicap, all bound by one common motive-to prove that disability is no handicap.
While some players wear calipers, others hobble on crutches a few are amputees, they have requested the actors not to give them any unfair advantage as they want the match to be a fair one.
The event named 'Junoon' is a Celebrity Charity Cricket Match supported by EVE Foundation (Empowering Villages Everywhere), Cricket Club of India and Rotaract Club of HR College. The ticket proceeds of this match shall be used to provide prosthetics (artificial limbs) to the disabled living in the rural district of Satara, Maharashtra.
The event will also see Atul Kulkarni, Sharman Joshi, Sohail and Arbaaz Khan, Prateik Babbar, Rani Mukerji, Aftab Shivdasani, Dilip Joshi, Isha Koppikar, Disha Vankani, Maanav Gohil, H R College principal Dr. Indu Shahani and many more celebrities take the field.
There will also be a performance by Shiamak Davar's extremely talented physically disabled dance troupe and a Blind Band performance with music spinned throughout the event by DJ Shaan.
