Ganguly to pick IPL babes for Kolkata Knight RidersJanuary 7th, 2009 - 4:06 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 7 (ANI): Former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly, who is popularly known as the Prince of Kolkata, will pick a new cheerleader for his Indian Premier League team, the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Ganguly is all set to make his small screen debut in Shahrukh Khans show, Knights and Angels. But unlike other cricketers he will not be seen participating, but rather judging the reality show Knights and Angels.
The talent hunt show, which will air on NDTV Imagine, will look for cheerleaders who will cheer for Kolkata Knight Riders in the second edition of the Indian Premier League.
Ganguly has agreed to appear on reality TV show, The Sun reported.
Shahrukh Khan had brought in the much needed glamour quotient to the first edition of the IPL.
King Khan is showing serious interest in television production and Red Chillies Entertainment will produce the show.
Noted choreographer Shiamak Davar will train the girls taking part in the show. L
But cheerleaders and the megabucks Twenty20 tournament have not always mixed well together.
Last year, Dehli Daredevils withdrew their cheerleaders after an outrage from local politicians. And, Deccan Chargers all-rounder Shahid Afridi complained his teams dancers were an unwanted distraction. (ANI)
