Saif, Bebo drop the idea of buying IPL team
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor desired to buy the IPL team, Pune jointly with Karishma Kapoor and her husband Sanjay Kapoor but the last minute change in plans by the IPL commissioner Lalit Modi has ruined their plan and now Saif is no longer interested in buying the team.
There have been some changes in the rules of the biding process and a fresh bidding will be held after eight days but Saif dropped the plan. Says Saif, "Yes, we were interested in buying the Pune team but the bidding process was cancelled and the rules were changed. Kareena and I had submitted our bid and there was one other person but Lalit (Modi) cancelled it. It would've been great if we could have bought the Pune team and entered the IPL as I love cricket too (his dad is one of India's former cricket captains, Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi)."
Talking about his future course of action, Saif said, "Whether we will still be interested or not will depend on how the rules have changed and what value the teams will be sold at. It has to be at a certain price. It's an investment for us and we have to buy something that's worth something. We can't end up losing money if it's not a sound investment."
It was also rumored that Ajay Devgan and Sanjay Dutt also discussed to buy an IPL team jointly.
