Arjun who was present for the launch said,
“It’s a fact that Cricket and Bollywood are like a religion in our country. I used to be glued to TV set for hours as a kid while India was playing. Sachin Tendulkar was my God and I had a big poster of him in my room.”
An ecstatic Santosh Gupta said,
“This year the show will target the youth and the viewers of the digital platform. I am sure that the one of a kind unisex cricket matches will be a good source of fresh content for the young generation. I am sure that with a strong team like ours, we will lift the trophy this time.”
