How will you define your team’s performance in BCL so far?
BCL has been a learning ground for us. It has given us actors something more to do with our lives and interact in an unconventional setting.

What are the injuries you have faced so far?
None.

Any memorable incident on the field that you’d want to share?
For me, the practice sessions were great fun. I got to see different facets to everyone’s personality.

Did you feel any changes after playing BCL?
Playing cricket gives you an adrenaline rush for sure. It also takes you back in time when playing a sport meant so much to us.

What feedback have you been getting till now for BCL season 2?
It’s been pretty good. I guess a lot of viewers are enjoying seeing their favorite actors in a different light.

Do you think cricket still has that hold on Indians?
Of course, cricket is not a sport, it’s a religion in India. From my childhood till now, I haven’t seen any other activity rule the collective consciousness of a country this way. We are all guilty of bunking school, work and other activities to just watch a cricket match.

Who is your favorite cricketer?
Sachin Tendulkar is my all-time favorite. However, currently it’s got to be Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni.

How was Nivedita as the owner of the team ?
Nivedita is a wonderful person and more so, an able leader. She knows her team members at the back of her hand. She is also great fun to be with
