Banning IPL? Ridiculous, says Shilpa Shetty
"It is upsetting to see TV channels running down the IPL, for any silly reason, citing reasons of it giving a bad image to India! How one sided," tweeted Shilpa.
The actress, who is expecting her first child with businessman husband Raj Kundra, says IPL has opened up opportunities for young talent and banning it, as politician like Kirti Azad and Lalu Prasad Yadav are demanding, would be absurd.
"A league that has opened up opportunities and a platform for so many young cricketers from all over. Bringing pride, revenue and entertainment to India. While corruption and some politicians have caused so much embarrassment to our country, those instances are forgotten so easily! Strange," she wrote.
"Hate this trial by media, and sensationalism of trivial issues! Let the law take its course on those issues. Thought of banning IPL is ridiculous!" she further posted.
The IPL is currently in news for all wrong reasons.
Shah Rukh Khan has been banned from entering Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium for the next five years due to his alleged misconduct with Mumbai Cricket Association officials.
In another incident immediately later, franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) player Luke Pomersbach has been accused of molesting an American girl and beating up her fiance during an IPL after party in the capital.
