Kunal Thakkur and Mrunal Jain’s Tennis Premier League has only been surprising us, rather pleasantly, we must say! The founders of the tournament have announced that Tejaswini Prakash will be one of the new faces of the league. What's more? Turns out that filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj is supporting the league wholeheartedly and will also be playing a match! That’s something you don’t want to miss, right?
Talking about the same, Kunal says,” Vishal ji has always been supporting tennis and is also the guiding force behind the league. After five long years, Vishal Ji and I are going to play an exhibition match against Leander (Paes).”
