Divya Dutta all praise for T-10 Gully cricket format !!!
Bollywood actress Divya Dutta, who owns Ludhiana Gulies, a T-10 Gully cricket team, says that the format is a good means to explore and provide an opportunity to the hidden talent in the country.
There is a lot of hidden talent in the country which does not come into the limelight only because of lack of opportunities, the actress said.
"Once en route a shooting in Punjab, I saw some boys playing cricket in a village. They did not have even proper bats. While the other popular formats like IPL are more urban-oriented, T-10 Gully cricket accords an opportunity to this unexplored talent," the 32-year-old actress said.
And who does not like a new hero emerging in every field. Be it cricket, or cinema, people constantly want something new, something better, she said adding a new face is always welcome.
On asked whether of late, Bollywood is taking more interest in cricket, Divya said the association is not at all new.
"I believe cinema is wedded to cricket. It is only because of some Indian Premier League teams being bought by Bollywood stars, that it is now being noticed more," she said.
But earlier too, we had cricketers like Sandeep Patil, Sunil Gavaskar trying their hand at movies too, she said.
Divya, who originally hails from Ludhiana will own and patronise Ludhiana Gullies- The Ludhiana Cricket Team of T-10 Gully cricket season-2.
The actress, known for her roles in movies like Veer-Zara, will have grassroots involvement in all aspects of the team from call for entries to selection, grooming of the players, cheering the team and getting various sponsorships for her team in this season.<img src=http://www.orkut-scrap.net/img/Animated-Dolls/1.gif >
