I am neither a sportsman nor a businessman. However, I realised that at a time when Kollywood actors were scattered, sports brought them together during the ‘Star Cricket Match’, which was held recently by Nadigar Sangam to raise funds.

I could see the camaraderie shared by them, and how the boys took it seriously and practiced despite their shooting schedules. The magic will be recreated here,” remarked actor and Nadigar Sangam president Nasser after launching the jersey of Chennai Rockers, the Tamil Nadu franchisee of Celebrity Badminton League in the city.

While the CBL was strategic consultant L. Hemachandran’s innovative idea — CR Venkatesh, an IT professional, owns Chennai Rockers, along with a few others. Chennai Rockers’ captain Arya was missing in action, but others like Prasanna, Bharath, Shanthnu, Vaibhav, Munnah, Abhinay Vaddi, Amitash and actresses Rupa Manjari and Ineya were present on the occasion.

While Madhavan is the brand ambassador, Amala Paul has been roped in as the team motivator. The other south teams involved include Tollywood Thunders, Kerala Royals, and Karnataka Alps. Looks like we are in for a fun ride indeed!
