Fake IPL Player and the movies.



I think the 'Fake IPL Player' blog is a hyped KKR-Bollywood stunt. The blog could be assembled by more than one guy, but with the final go-ahead from the big boss – anybody who’s read Akash Chopra, self ridiculing style will be thinking, is it him?

Just think back to his U.K. Diary in Hindustan Times – they pulled no punches. Chopra, at no point, made excuses for himself as a player, or the reason behind his cricket cum business trip, playing some lowly league cricket on deathly damp pitches where no sane cricketer would dream of a pitch inspection leave alone a game.

Then there’s the almost aloof Murali Kartik, done time in the counties again, picked some of that wry English humour, have you M?

And what about SRK, back to school, theatre, bring some of that drama into his team?

Either way KKR don’t lose – they’re the only team that has been in the news through-out.

Look at the build up in the blogs, the almost Hitchcockesque tension, as if the fake IPL player will be stabbed blogging in the shower.

Either way, this is masti. And that’s what the IPL is? For a test match, the 12th man can write a book. Leather bound obviously.

Bored Cricket Crazy Indians (BCC!) posted the 'Fake IPL Player' even before fake could post it.

NC,

I just feel it cannot be Akash Chopra; the man does not have that sense of humor.

But yeah.. the entire marketing team. Cud be possible. So many details in there.

soon we would come to know that another form of blogging is coming to virtue is 'cricket gossip'...

much the same way these gossip magazines talk about 'movies'...this fake player talks about 'cricket'...

So do you think his marketing team would go for this kind of humour? I'm not entirely familiar with SRK to be honest so I can't speculate on this possibility.

Can't imagine SRK will let him be called everything Mr. Fake IPL guy is callin him in the blog. So cant buy the Mktg team angle ;-)

btw gr8 blog u've got here. I've added it to the Cricketblogroll site we run www.cricket.superblogroll.com

KKR sure knows how to stay in the news. I guess they get that from their owner.

Leela, looks like you don't find Chopra funny, i'll say he does have a sense of humour.

Naked Cricket said...

SP, yeah, but he doesn't put any pics

Naked Cricket said...

Cheers sb!

Naked Cricket said...

Amy, doubt SRK is familiar with himself any more

Naked Cricket said...

Hi Superblogroll, I don't buy it entirely myself. Just one of those theories that make a fun possibility. I'm not ruling out the multiple captain theory, fake, all SRK's babies.

Naked Cricket said...

Totally Q, he's set the team up like one of his better plots, win, lose, they make news
