Kangana to remain Mumbai Heroes lucky charm
Bollywood team of Celebrity Cricket League, Mumbai Heroes, has decided to retain actor Kangna Ranaut as the face of their group this year too.
"She wasn't around in the first season; as a result we didn't win any matches. But she was with us in the second season and we won a few. I hope she continues to remain our lucky charm," says Vikas Kapoor, the co-owner, who owns the team along with actor Sohail Khan. He adds, "She discusses the game regularly and encourages the players, inducing a positive vibe. That's the kind of people we want."
However, this year Kangna might not be the only star representing Mumbai Heroes. The owners are planning to rope in two more Bollywood leading ladies as brand ambassadors because some of them have expressed their interest to be associated with the team. "We will be announcing a couple of more names in the coming future. We may have two more ladies as there are some who want to come on board," says Vikas.
Meanwhile, Sohail, who was reportedly not playing this season, seems to have changed his mind. He has started practicing for the league.
The team includes Bobby Deol, Aftab Shivdasani, Sonu Sood, Apoorva Lakhia, Shabbir Ahluvalia, Kabir Sadanand, Ashish Chowdhary, Angad Bedi, Varun Badola, Raja Bherwani, Sunny Dulgach, Sachin Joshi among others.
