They may have missed out an opportunity to showcase their film Kambakkht Ishq at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival due to the ongoing stand off between the producers and the multiplex owners but that hasn't dampened producer Sajid Nadiadwala and Eros International's spirits. They are now amidst talks about getting a bigger platform for showcasing their film.
There is a strong buzz that they are presently in talks with the Indian Premiere League management to allow their stars Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor to participate in the finals of the tournament on May 24. Sources further reveal, “If the talks are successful then Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor are both likely to perform at final venue in South Africa and the promos of the film shall be shown at the event."
IPL is not new for Akshay as one can recollect he was the brand ambassador for the Delhi Daredevils team during the IPL season one. His rope way entry to the match venue at the Ferozshah Kotla ground was much written about too last year. Aamir Khan along with nephew Imran Khan had gone to watch the IPL finals at Navi Mumbai's DY Patil Stadium Last year. They had not performed but had gone to just enjoy the game.
