IPL 2018 Super Sunday, on May 6, 2018, will see Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt feature in the Bollywood Presents segment of Kent Cricket Live with Brett Lee and Irfan Pathan.
The actress will cover a plethora of topics for IPL fans including, her views on the tournament, her favourite IPL teams and her opinion on the ideal fictional Women’s Celebrity Cricket Team.
Alia will also provide a sneak peek into her character in the upcoming movie Raazi, where she plays the role of a young 20-year-old spy from 1971. The segment will be broadcasted during the Super Sunday Double Header on the 6th of May 2018 at 2.30 p.m.
A few notable excerpts from the segment:
When asked about her views on what she thinks IPL brings to the table Alia Bhatt says, “IPL really does well to bring the country together to celebrate cricket. The tournament also does well to give youngsters the opportunity to showcase their talents by giving them a big opportunity.”
Highlighting Rahul Dravid as the unsung hero of the Indian Cricket Team, Alia Bhatt says, “I think Rahul Dravid is an unsung hero of the Indian Cricket Team because he has had a stellar career with a modest retirement. Post-retirement too he is doing so much. He’s overseeing the U-19 team that has won the world cup, so I think he is the best unsung hero.”
When asked about her opinion on an ideal women’s celebrity cricket team, Alia Bhatt says, “Anushka Sharma would make a good captain of the team with Kangana Ranaut as an excellent all-rounder and Katrina Kaif as the key fielder as she is extremely agile. I would name the team Chaan Mulgi” – which translates to ‘good girls’ in Marathi.
The broadcast hosted by Mr. Anant Tyagi, features Bollywood Superstar Alia Bhatt along with Brett Lee and Irfan Pathan. The segment also gives IPL fans a sneak peek into Alia’s new upcoming film Raazi, which marks the actress’s debut in period films and is based on a true story.
