Inspired by this, Karnataka Dancers Association (KDA) is now organising Sandalwood T20 Cricket match at Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on July 25. Sandalwood celebs like Sudeep, Shivaraj Kumar, Ravichandran and several others are taking part in the matches to win T20 Sandalwood Trophy.
The KDA is running short of funds to buy a site for its building. Now, it is organising the Sandalwood T20 Cricket match to collect money for the same purpose. There will be eight teams, which will fight for the championship. Each team will have five artist and rest from their Association members.
However, The FDA has already formed a few teams and their captains. Shivaraj Kumar, Ravichandran and Sudeep will lead the Producers Association, the Directors Association and Dancers Association respectively. The KDA is yet to select teams of other artistes like cinematographer and stunts.
Recently, the Movie Artistes" Association (MAA) had organised a T20 Tollywood Trophy in Hyderabad. The cricket matches were held to raise funds to help poor artistes' children. This T20 event was a big success. The MAA raised Rs.1.5 crore from it and contributed it to solve several problems of poor people.
