Cricket and glamour in the new avtaar
Enkayaar, Bollywood Trade News Network
After a long-long time, some action has started emanating on the cricket and glamour front. Cricket hitherto had been one-way traffic in the sense that the cricket stars of the Indian cricket team were interacting with the Hindi film industry. However, it was mainly an all-male domain, seldom had been a female actor's name was being associated with the rising stars of the Indian cricket team, as it has now in the case of Deepika Padukone and Yuvraj Singh and Mahender Singh Dhoni. The frenzy of this association has been such that it has made the news headline in all the major newspapers and electronic media as well.
The quotient of curiosity of this association lies in the fact that here is a star in the form of Deepika Padukone at the launch of her career, who instead of getting herself associated with one or the other contemporaries of the film fraternity, seems to be showing her inclination for her a sports person, that too cricket. This association however has catalysis in the form of sports which seems to be the driving force.
Deepika coming as she is from a sports family of the country of the highest order, and herself being a sports person before walking on to the glamour world, would have a soft corner more for the sports than a film star.
With the kind of media frenzy associated with Indian cricket these days world over, it seems but logical that if one gets an association with a cricketer either in the form of a Dhoni or a Yuvi it immediately provides an identity quotient at the international level for a film star, and which is a difficult proposition to manage by being associated with a film star.
As the sports of cricket is now being to all over the world, the instant recognition that stars like Deepika can get if her name is associated with an international cricket star, it can also be one of the reasons for Deepika to be present in Australia along with Yuvi. In fact, Shah Rukh Khan had done the same with the Indian cricket team around the 20-20 world cup. Deepika being the protégée of Shah Rukh Khan seems to have taken a leaf out of Shah Rukh Khan's book. It is altogether a different matter that with the flavor of emotion coming into play in this association the emerging concoction may have a heady brew.
