|SRK Responds to Cricket360.com Googly|
|Pitched By Sharad with C360 Reporter|
|Friday, 17 April 2009|
Cricket360.com’s Sharad Chikara posed King Khan a googly asking him if he wasn’t biased in favour of the fair sex as far as the Ms Bollywood contest went. There was a light moment at the press conference where all the IPL Bollywood stars were out in force, including Preity Zinta, Shilpa Shetty etc. and of course the omnipresent Lalit Modi.
Sharad Chikara had a question for Shah Rukh Khan and asked him, “the 56 women promotion, Shah Rukh, do you think you're being partial?”
“You want more girls?” was Khan’s tongue in cheek reply. “No in terms of the opposite sex,” said Sharad. “You want boys also?” asked Khan amidst titters and chuckles from all present. “Do you think you're being fair?” Sharad insisted and Khan took the easy way out: “All the sexual decisions, Lalit takes,” Kahn said outrageously to even more laughter!
The whole Ms Bollywood concept was explained at the press conference thus: One lucky South African IPL fan with star quality stands to win a role in a Bollywood movie, R50 000 in cash, a business class trip to India and other prizes in the 2009 tournament’s Miss Bollywood SA competition.
“We’re looking for someone who has the star quality to stand out in a crowd, probably without even trying that hard. It’s that special, almost indefinable, quality that makes someone a star more than a beauty queen that we are looking for,” Modi said today. “IPL matches with their mix of fun and excitement are an excellent environment to identify the kind of person who is a natural stand-out in a big crowd,” he added.
“Star searches like this are a really great way to find people who may never even have thought that they have what it takes to really make it big,” said Khan.
“The heart of our idea is to search the crowd at IPL matches for someone who has the attitude and appearance that automatically draws the eye. It will be the kind of person who is not necessarily showing off for the camera, but who can mesmerize even total strangers,” he said.
A total of 50 winners will be chosen from the crowds at every one of the eight venues around the country that is to host IPL matches. Winners will be shown on the big screen at every match during the second five-minute break. There will be one finalist per match, identified with the help of TV producers who will have cameras scanning the crowds. IPL matches are being played in Cape Town, East London, Port Elizabeth, Durban, Bloemfontein, Kimberley, Johannesburg and Pretoria. Tickets to matches are on sale through Computicket.
