The IPL in South Africa may just be the reason why the following news carries so much star power. ‘Cricket Aaj Kal toh kaafi news mein hain.’ But so is Imtiaz Ali’s next biggie Love Aaj Kal,starring Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone.
The film which highlights the difference between love today and love during the yesteryears is in for some good promotional activities we hear in the overseas. And what better way to promote your film when the whole world will be present in the U.K to watch the world’s top cricketing geniuses battle it out in the T20 World Cup. Not to forget,India,the reigning champions will be the ones to watch out for. So when you have the cricketers,frenzied crowd,crisp warm weather and strawberries with cream,and well,Bollywood stars promoting their film,what more can you ask for?
But we did miss out the commentators,didn’t we? We bring one for you,not from the cricketing world though…but from the filmy world. A reliable source has just confirmed the latest news from London that Deepika Padukone will be joining in the commentary team for next month’s ‘T20 World Cup’ as a guest commentator. The actress who was previously linked with the likes of Indian cricketing heroes,M.S. Dhoni and Yuvraaj Singh will now be sharing the same field as them once the match begins. But we’ll have to wait and watch whether her ‘Love Aaj’- Ranbir Kapoor will be a mere spectator to this exciting event. That was match one.
Match two brings you a special celebrity cricket match with teams headed by Saif Ali Khan and Deepika Padukone which will be covered by the local and world journalists along the lines of Veteran (KAL) cricket team (1st & 2nd generations) Vs Novice (AAJ) cricket team (3rd and 4th generations). Again to wait and watch whether Rishi Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor will play opposite each other in this much awaited cricket match. Our sources have confirmed that Deepika and Saif will be in London during the first week of June. Time for some commentary lessons and net practice Deepika! That’s all we have from the centre.
