Bollywood stars including Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Hrithik Roshan, Shilpa Shetty and many actors own teams in different sporting leagues including IPL. In fact, it has become a trend in Bollywood to buy one or the other sporting team.
But Salman Khan has always maintained distance from indulging in such business. So, when Salman Khan was quizzed if he has plans to buy any sports franchise in an interview by a leading daily, he said.
“I don’t see myself fighting with Delhi, Pune or KKR.No doubt, it’s a wonderful way to promote sports, but I want to be there (pointing to the top). So, when it becomes Salman’s team versus Preity’s team or Shah Rukh’s team, it no longer remains a sporting thing, it gets into the area of gossip. Also, the ‘responsible press’ will take away focus from the match, and I don’t want to give anybody that kind of mileage. I want to do something for the overall development of sports.”
Salman Khan is currently shooting for Sultan which is releasing on Eid.
