Kajal Aggarwal is brand ambassador for Celebrity Cricket League

NEW DELHI: Actor Kajal Aggarwal, who is popular in south India, is continues to be the brand ambassador for the third edition of the Celebrity Cricket League.

“Personally, I love my association with the CCL. There is a spirit of togetherness in the league, as actors from all movie industries in the country come together and bond over the game of cricket. It’s fun to interact with my contemporaries from other film industries,” says Kajal.

For an actor who has been working in Hindi, Telugu and Tamil cinema, Kajal claims she does not have any favourites when it comes to cheering for one particular team. “My loyalties are not going to be divided. I’ll be cheering for the CCL and not a particular team,” she says.

Although she was also signed on as brand ambassador last year, the actor couldn’t make it to many matches as she was busy with work commitments. “This year I plan to attend as many matches as I can. There can be nothing better than marrying the love for cricket with the passion for cinema. And seeing the enthusiasm among the audience is priceless.”

The actor says she is aware about the criticism among the game’s purist on movie stars playing cricket to packed stadiums. “I don’t think it is frivolous the way people make it to be. We’ve never claimed we are playing seriously like our national players. Our aim is to bring the fans closer to us through the game and we’ve been successful in doing that.”
