Juhi Chawla Hopes For Amicable Solution Of IPL-Broadcasters Dispute
Actress Juhi Chawla is hopeful of an amicable solution of the standoff between News Broadcasters Association (NBA) and the Indian Premier League (IPL).The actress who is co-owner of IPL outfit Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) said that the dispute would affect the coverage of the cash-rich league.
Addressing media-persons at a press conference Chawla said, “Like all the IPL franchisees, we also need coverage and this standoff will affect it. But we are a component of IPL and we will stand by whatever decision IPL takes. But I hope things will be resolved amicably.”
The 34 channels under the NBA had decided to boycott the IPL completely after a disagreement over feed sharing last month.
Chawla said she was hoping for luck to smile on her team to help them emerge winners all the way, "I will be present for all the matches of KKR here. We are proud of Dada (Sourav Ganguly). He has the captain's luck and he is a fighting cricketer and hope he brings that dash to the team," she said.
