Actor Hiten Tejwani, who was last seen as one of the housemates in the controversial Bigg Boss 11 is all ready to be playing in Marinating Films’ MTV BCL. He is part of Kolkata Babu Moshayes and says that he has always been passionate about cricket.
The actor adds that since Kolkata Babu Moshayes was owned by his friend Nivedita Basu, he was thrilled to be part of it.
“I love cricket and one format is BCL. Cricket in any form is a fantastic game and of course, you get to play with all your friends,”
“I chose to be a part of Kolkata Babu Moshayes because it’s Nivedita Basu’s team. She’s a dear friend. It’s absolutely lovely that all our besties are on one team. This is my third year with the team. We have a team of good players.”
Talking about practice, the actor says,
“It becomes tough because we practice mostly post everyone’s pack up. That is, post 10 pm so we finish late and then the next morning again we get back to shoots. But everyone does it for the love of cricket. We practice a minimum of two to three hour daily.”
“The idea is to be mentally strong. As far as the physical training and building up more stamina is concerned, I’ve started running more and have added functional training also in my workout regime.”
When asked who is or are been his idol in the game, he says,
“My favorite players are Sachin Tendulkar and now Virat Kohli. You can see the passion on their faces and in the way they play.”
The actor has a lot of goals for his team.
“As a team, I want to win this time. We have had close matches before. Our main responsibility will be not to think about earlier matches and move on.”
Ask him what will be the most challenging in the season, and he says,
“The main challenge will be to get the new players on the same page. There are few new players this time too so everyone has to work towards one goal – victory.”
