Bollywood stars like Shahrukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Shilpa Shetty possess an IPL team and we all wonder if Salman Khan would join the bandwagon and put his money on buying an IPL team. However, Salman Khan says he doesn’t desire to take away the attention from the players and the sport merely because he owns an IPL team, and he desires to do something for the overall development of the sports, without possessing an IPL team.
Salman Khan, spoke to Bombay Times and was asked about owning a Cricket team. The actor, says he could not buy an IPL team, but would help the sport in his own manner. When it becomes Salman’s team versus Preity’s team or the team of Shah Rukh, it remains a sporting thing, it gets into the area of rumor. Also, the responsible press’ will take away focus from the match, and I do not want to give that kind of mileage to anybody. I want to do something for the overall development of sports.”
Salman Khan, is totally right when he said that people would hijack the sport and label it ‘Salman vs Shahrukh’ or ‘Salman vs Preity’ and start creating division among themselves, which is just not right when it comes to sports. Kudos to Salman Khan, for thinking about the glory of sports and we’re sure, he will do a great job in helping the general development of the game.
