Star Sports has announced the launch of ‘Super Sunday’ as a part of its IPL 2018 special programming.
It aims to bring the entire family together to catch all the action leading up to the two games every Sunday. With highlights, film actor presence and expert analysis there is something for every family member to cheer about. The program will also provide exclusive windows into 4 VIVO IPL franchises namely Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Kolkata Knight Riders, with real time news and exclusive insights from the respective camps.
Shahenshah Amitabh Bachchan will feature as the guest editor of Bollywood Presents on Kent Cricket Live at 14:30 on Sunday 15th April 2018.
Fans can watch the episode featuring the Super Star and India’s greatest all-rounder and World Cup winning captain, Kapil Dev on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 HD, Star Sports 1 Hindi and Star Sports 1 Hindi HD.
The highlight of the show will be the banter between the two legends over cricket and Bollywood followed by the teaser of the song “Badoomba”, sung by BIG B himself. The song is part of the upcoming movie 102 not out, set for release on the Friday 4th May 2018.
When asked about his favourite team in the VIVO IPL Amitabh Bachchan said, “Even though my roots are deeply embedded in Mumbai, I am a son-in-law of Bengal with a son who owns two teams, of which one is from Chennai and another from Jaipur and my daughter in law is from Karnataka. This leaves no room for favouritism when it comes to watching the IPL. Inevitably, we all end up enjoying the IPL together as a family.”
As Amitabh Bachchan and Kapil Dev patiently build-up the double header, they will also showcase Join the game, an integral part of the segment which showcases a retro section with Amitabh Bachchan and Kapil Dev. The segment covers Amitabh Bachchan and Kapil Dev sharing anecdotes on their days as cricket’s fans and players, with Amitabh Bachchan quizzing Kapil Dev on cricket and Kapil Dev will quiz Amitabh Bachchan on cinema.
Kapil Dev, former Indian team captain and legendary ICC hall of famer said: “This Sunday is going to be Super Special as I’ll be chatting with the great Amit ji over cricket and Bollywood. Amit ji has been an icon for generations and I admire his discipline, dedication and passion towards his profession till date. Everyone also knows he’s a sports lover but it’ll be fun to quiz him on cricket and test his knowledge of the game. On the other hand, let’s see how I fair in my knowledge of Bollywood. This will be fun for sure!”
