Actor Kunal Pant, who will be part of Anand Misha and Ekta Kapoor’s MTV BCL, says that he chose Ahmedabad Express as his team because he is close to the other players. The actor is also heading the team as the captain. “I chose Ahmedabad Express because all my buddies are here, it’s a chilled-out team and I am leading the team as a captain. BCL is the biggest party of actors where you meet everyone, have fun and play cricket but with one objective i.e. to win. So, everyone is happy to see each other but everyone is also in full competitive mode, which you see on the field, in the match,” he says.
Kunal adds that he is loving being part of BCL. “Marinating films have come up with this concept, and it’s mind blowing. You see more than 100 actors on one platform, in one sports reality show. It’s like a festival. The whole atmosphere, the sets, the people are amazing. It’s lovely to be part of this,” he says.
Talking about preparation, Kunal says, “It’s not tough to take time out to practice. Since this is a different ball, the ballers shoulders get sore. The batsmen have to reinvent their timings and fielders have to really concentrate on preventing the ball from bouncing off their hands. It’s a tough mental and physical game.”
He adds, “The main task of the team is to play as a team. Everyone should be aware of their responsibilities.”
