There is a news doing rounds that Aamir Khan might be making his debut in the next season of Indian Premier League(IPL) by endorsing a cricket team in the highly-popular tournament.
“Aamir Khan is all set to be a brand ambassador of a cricket team in IPL’s next season which kicks off from April 10 next year. He might co-own the team with other business partners too. He and his few friends might start looking out for good cricket talent for his team soon.”
While the story is still developing, his nephew Imran Khan had said that Aamir definitely loves IPL. So, if he’s actually associating with the franchisee commercially… we shouldn’t be surprised.
There is one angle to the story also. Apparently, Aamir and Shah Rukh are involved in an endorsement fight. While SRK went for the Nokia, Aamir endorses arch rivals Samsung. The war also goes through the Direct-To-Home(DTH) sector with Aamir endorsing Tata Sky, SRK is associated with Dish TV.
So, if this fight stretches to the cricket commercialization, it would not be shocking… but interesting!
