Actor Salman Khan has proclaimed that his Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) team, Mumbai Heroes, will come back with a bang in the second season.
“Last time we did not make it. Every time we lost a match, we used to discuss how we would destroy those guys in the next game. But we still lost miserably… But this year, we will try to perform well,” said the 45-year-old actor, addressing a press conference in Dubai to announce the CCL’s plans to head to the UAE. CCL is scheduled to be held there at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on January 13 and 14.
The Bodyguard actor also revealed the line-up of Mumbai Heroes along with its brand ambassadors — actors Kangna Ranaut, Sonakshi Sinha and Genelia D’Souza — at the glittering function.
The actor will not play in the match this season due to medical reasons. He, however, will be on the sidelines cheering on his boys.
Actor Sohail Khan, who owns Mumbai Heroes, is also optimistic about his team’s future attack and says they will soon start working on their fielding attack.
“Cricket and cinema are the two religions among Indians. And we have grown up watching Indo-Pakistan games — I still remember the six hit by Javed Miandad at Sharjah stadium. Therefore, Sharjah is the perfect place to host CCL. We are taking this seriously, and we will begin rigorous practice soon,” said Sohail.
“We promise to keep it reasonable because it’s all about entertaining the masses and bringing people of different states together,” added Salman’s youngest brother.
