Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh, as well as the Adanis and the Glazer family, are set to bid for the new teams.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) will include ten clubs fighting for the coveted trophy in the 2022 season. The IPL's governing board had issued a request for proposals to buy the rights to two new franchises for the forthcoming season. According to speculations, Bollywood star pair Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh may be interested in bidding for a new franchise in the league. According to the most recent news on Bollywood stars' interest in the league, the competition to control the teams is currently more intense than ever.
The Adani Group and the RP-Sanjeev Goenka Group were previously locked in a two-horse fight to own the new IPL 2022 franchises for the forthcoming T20 league. The competition has now widened as allegations surfaced that Manchester United's owners, the Glazer family, we're interested in purchasing a team. According to a report published by Outlook, celebrity couple Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh are now considering bidding for a new team in the event.
It's not uncommon to see Bollywood stars tied to the IPL. The IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders is co-owned by Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla, while Punjab Kings is owned by Preity Zinta. Moreover, coming from a sports-loving family, Deepika owning an IPL franchise wouldn't be strange. Prakash Padukone, the actor's father, is a former All England badminton champion. Ranveer Singh has also dabbled in sports, serving as a brand ambassador for both the English Premier League and the NBA, the world's most prominent basketball league.
Because the bidding procedure is still ongoing, no final pins may be put. However, rumors say that the BCCI is hesitant to provide any off-shore corporation rights to an IPL 2022 team. The competition for new IPL teams continues getting better, and the winning bid might only grow higher now. Experts estimate that an offer of between 375 and 425 million USD may get a 10-year license for a club.
