Cricket is the buzz word today and with the IPL 3 commencing, TV channels are looking to produce shows with a cricketing element. Colors led the way with Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena and have now landed on the cricket field in search of their IPL Rockstar at the ongoing IPL. Fear Factor 3 too is said to be featuring cricketers and now it’s rumored that Imagine TV and SOL productions will have a cricketer in the third season of its extremely popular ‘swayamvar’ series.
“There is a thought of roping in a cricketer for the third series which is slated to come in about four month’s time. It might be difficult to bring in a player from national team because of their international duties. Given a choice, who wouldn’t want a Yuvraj, Dhoni or Harbhajan? It’s too early to judge things,” said a source from the show.
We tried contacting SOL productions Fazeela and even sent her a text but she didn’t reply.
Well, Indian fans though won’t complain as they certainly would love to see their favourite cricket star find their bride through a swayamvar. Unlike the first two swayamvars, there certainly will be huge number of applicants. A poll conducted in Chandigarh, Mumbai and Delhi threw the names of Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and southpaw Yuvraj as female fans’ favourite for the swayamvar.
Yuvraj Singh is no stranger to the entertainment world having had liaisons with Bollywood stars Kim Sharma and Deepika Padukone. Captain Dhoni tends to keep a low profile while Harbhajan Singh isn’t averse to facing the camera. Mercurial speedster Sreesanth blows hot and cold on the cricket field. He’s currently linked with TV actress Surveen Chawla.
These celebrated may not figure in the show so one has got to look for forlorn bachelors from the domestic circuit.
