Salman not buying IPL team, confirms Sohail

News has been doing the rounds that Salman Khan is interested in owning an IPL team but brother Sohail Khan denied the news. Brother Sohail said, "It's not true. Salman is not buying any IPL team. Yesterday when he was shooting for Dus Ka Dum I called up bhai and asked him whether it was true and he denied it."

With an aim to buy an IPL team, Salman Khan met IPL commissioner Lalit Modi at a suburban Mumbai hotel and it was Modi who confirmed the news of Salman Khan’s interest in owning a cricket team which he is going to introduce in 2011.

"He has been interested in buying a team for quite some time. Today, we had a brief meeting and I explained how to go about with the task. I can assure you that Salman is not the only star who is thinking of buying a team. I have had around 28 queries and the list will surely go up," Modi said.

But Salman close source said that it was just an informal meeting and Salman did not meet Modi with an aim to own a team, he just asked him what's happening with the IPL and some other details.

It also came to heard that apart from Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgan showed interest in buying a IPL team.
