SHILPA SHETTY, MANDIRA BEDI & SHAMITA SHETTY

SHILPA SHETTY, MANDIRA BEDI & SHAMITA SHETTY

There are two kinds of interventions that film stars make in association with cricket in our country, one is through their star power or by making their presence felt and second is by trying to bath in the reflected glory of a super hit cricket tournament. Indian Premier League is no exception, and in the tournament the recent overtures that Shamita Shetty is making falls in the second category. She seems to be trying to leverage the position of her sister Shilpa Shetty , who owns Rajasthan Royals to keep herself in circulation. Her name has hit the marquee in association with Shane Warne, Yusuf Pathan and MS Dhoni enough canon fodder to keep her in the public memory for quite some time.

Shamita Shetty has gone on record to claim that though Shane Warne is a fantastic captain; she adores Yusuf Pathan but has likeness for M S Dhoni as well, the captain of Chennai Super Kings and the Indian captain as well. It is a kind of statement that can be interpreted in any manner one can think about. Yusuf Pathan may not know that he has a particular style of hitting the six, but it is this style, which Shamita finds adorable in Pathan. She seems to be graduating to become a TV commentator, Mandira Bedi watches your back, and the competition is brewing.

For Shamita IPL time is indeed best of the times, as she has managed to be in the news with a prominence that she has not been able to do with her film career.

Crux of the argument is that the female film stars who try to bask in the reflected glory of a cricket tournament are majorly those who are searching their moorings and have not been able to make a mark otherwise in the world of films. But for a Sharmila Tagore, likes of Anju Mahendru, Neena Gupta, Sangeeta Bijlani, Reena Roy, etc., included, who have their share of attention thanks to late welding with cricket in one form or the other.

It is for this reason that cricket and films have such an intrinsic relationships, but the difference is that while the film stars continue to hang on to the elusive threat of cricket tournaments to keep them in circulation cricket stars continues to find new arm candies. In fact, there are no sports in which the film stars, who have still not hit the big league, or have started slipping down the ladders, are not found trying to bask in reflected glory. Is it then the Sports ka Jalwa?
