Abhishek Bachchan’s IPL fever
If everything goes right, then we may see Abhishek Bachchan dancing on the cricket fields in the name of cheering and supporting ‘his own’ IPL team, just like the King Khan does in Eden Gardens. The IPL 2011 will see two more teams, and the huge Videocon group is running to get hold of the franchise rights of the Pune team. It is said that they have joined hands with Jr. Bachchan, and he might be their partner.According to the sources, P Vision Ltd, a company owned by Videocon Group chief Venugopal Dhoot, has roped in Abhishek Bachchan along with two Pune based firms, and they will be bidding for the new IPL team.
Though Mr. Dhoot refrained from making any comments whatsoever.The IPL organizers have set up few criterions based on which a franchise will be chosen. This includes billion dollar turnover of the company and also a bank guarantee of Rs 430 crore. And if sources are to be believed then the Videocon group is the frontrunner.In fact, the big daddy of IPL is also not in mood of revealing anything. He was in Mumbai to announce the League’s first-ever branded merchandise tie-up with 130-yer-old Swiss watchmakers Bandelier. He said, “everybody is speculating many things.
You will know (bidders) tomorrow.”Notably, the base price for the IPL team is 225m USD, and Adani group is also running to get the franchise of the Ahmadabad team.Well, the biggest winners will be the audience of the IPL matches, because if Abhishek joins the IPL, then his wife and very gorgeous Aishwarya Rai, and also his father Amitabh Bachchan will automatically join him in the field. Certainly, cricket will be much more enjoyable, ain’t it?
