It looks like Indian Premiere League commissioner Lalit Modi is trying to gain publicity for the league through Bollywood actor Salman Khan. He sparked the rumours that Salman was interested in buying an IPL team but the actor denied it.
It was Lalit Modi who opened the Pandora's box and the media made sure that it spread to every corner by adding some more spice. Modi told the media after meeting Salman at a Mumbai hotel that the actor was interested in buying an IPL team and that he had explained to him how to go about. He added that he had received around 28 queries.
However, Sohail Khan said that his brother Salman is not buying any IPL team. He added that he had spoken to him on the matter while he was shooting for 10 Ka Dum. He termed the reports as utter rumour.
It may be mentioned that IPL is connected to Bollywood in one way or the other - be it celebrities owning the teams or adding glamour as ambassadors. Actors like Shahrukh Khan, Preity Zinta, Shilpa Shetty and Juhi Chawla own IPL teams.
