Mumbai, Nov 5 (IANS) Actress-filmmaker Divya Khosla Kumar has bought a team in the Tennis Premier League (TPL).

The “Yaariyan” director has partnered with businessman Sneh Patel to co-own the Delhi Binny’s Brigade in TPL.

“I’m happy to venture into Tennis Premier League. I try to involve myself in initiatives that are for the larger good. TPL is not only promoting and encouraging tennis as a sport but is also giving a boost to all our talented wheelchair players which I think is a great thing to do,” said Divya, who was born and raised in Delhi.

Patel is ecstatic that Divya is on board. He said: “At the player auction we have managed to get some top players like Ankita Raina and Saketh Myneni to play for our team. With a mentor like Aditya Sachdeva and a co-owner like Divya, I’m sure Delhi Binny’s Brigade now has a good chance to win.”

The league, which is in its second season, is founded by Kunal Thakkur and Mrunal Jain. The second season will be held in December at the Celebration Sports Club.
