Boney Kapoor, Arup Biswas and the Bengal CCL team
Kolkata, Dec 19, 2012 (Washington Bangla Radio) The man behind the success of Mr. India, the producer and celebrity husband of famous actress Sridevi, Boney Kapoor visited Kolkata on 7th December to support and promote the Celebrity Cricket League T20. Boney Kapoor has been the franchiser of the Bengal team i.e. ‘Bengal Tigers’ since its season 1.
Boney flew down to Kolkata to cheer his time at the practice session
and expressed his belief to WBRi, “Though last year at the CCL 2 Bengal
Tigers could not do well to mark their good standing, this year at the
season 2 of Bengal Tigers, they would be playing hard to ‘take u turn’
and enjoy the spirit of cricket. We are sure that we will play the
finals. I am very optimistic about my team Bengal Tiger.”

When asked about different things like his next project of the tinsel
town, the success of his wife Sridevi in her latest film ‘English
Vinglish’ and the very much talked about film of 2013 Mr. India 2, he
preferred keeping himself mum on the topics saying he just would talk
about only cricket this time. He said that Bengal is a sports loving
state, and has produced some brilliant players like Sourav Ganguly. He
also felt if the practice session was such enjoyable, the real matches
against the different celebrity teams would be much more extravagant
than the previous seasons.
This time celebrity cricket league reached its optimum level when 22 players selected from the celebs and known faces from the small and silver screen were finalized for the Bengal Tigers, Season 3. At first 20 names were announced for Bengal Tigers, but later on two more names were added. Arjun and Gaurav Chakraborty the duo celebrity sons of ‘Feluda’ Sabyasachi would be playing for the third season of CCL.
