Last year, Huma Qureshi was the brand ambassador of the Sohail Khan’s Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) franchise’s brand ambassador, however this year Kriti Sanon will play the innings with her magical charm as the new brand ambassador of Sohail Khan’s CCL. This Bollywood newcomer is surely created ripples in the Bollywood industry, after getting commendable critical acclaim for her acting and beauty, she is all set to play a new role.
Huma Qureshi indeed a great actress, however as we all know, the younger and popular replaces the former, also rumours are prevailing that the Badlapur actress got replaced due to her link-up reports with the filmmaker Sohail. News is in the air, that the alleged hook-up or closeness of these two started when last year Huma was signed as the brand ambassador of Sohail’s franchise Mumbai Heroes. Sohail, who is married to designer Seema and has two sons with her, and also as the Khan’s are more popular to stay as a close-knit happy family, this got strict reactions from family. Well, after the rumour the 29-year-old beautiful actress has denied and called this rumour baseless as for her, Sohail is just like an “elder brother”.
When asked about Huma’s replacement as the brand ambassador this year, Sohail replied “Unfortunately, she can’t be a part of this season, because we don’t have her dates… We can’t actually afford a lot of brand ambassadors. We got Kriti this year, Taapsee (Pannu) this year. We got a lot of people who will volunteer to come according to the dates,” at the launch of season six of CCL.
He also added that “As a brand ambassador you are expected to come on all days and promote the team. So she won’t be able to be the poster girl for the league, unfortunately she can’t be that this year… But we have big line-up coming up for our games,” the 45-year-old ‘Jai Ho’ director said.
Well, as one says somebody’s loss is somebody’s gain; Kriti Sanon has got the wonderful opportunity. As Salman Khan is also associated with CCL, he will also mark his presence for few matches.
This year Ahemdabad is going to witness the CCL craze with Salman Khan as its poster boy. Well, the CCL 6 kicks off from January 23.
