The Indian Premier League (IPL) brings together a heavy cocktail of cricket and glamour will not be an understatement. The cash-rich league, over the years, has proceeded to dish out a perfect amalgamation of cricket and glamour.
Apart from world-class cricketers coming under one roof to provide edge-of-a-seat stuff, its cheerleaders and glamorous anchors is another once such attraction of the cash-rich league. From Archana Vijaya, Shibani Dandekar to Mayanti Langer, everyone has brought a different dimension to hosting the tournament.
One of them is England-based Indian origin model Karishma Kotak. Kotak was one of the co-hosts of the cash-rich league in the 2013 edition when the tournament used to be broadcasted by Sony Max.
Kotak, who had shot to fame courtesy her participation in the 2012 season of the reality show Big Boss, was roped in by Max for the 2013 edition where she had said: “Cricket is very close to every Indian’s heart, so is IPL. I am definitely excited to travel all over the country, hosting the IPL and watching the matches live.”
Karishma Kotak admits how hosting IPL did wonders for her
Kotak recently admitted how hosting the Indian Premier League and the World Cup did wonders for her. She admitted that it was spectacular as she got to travel to different parts of the country and world where she met a lot of new people, made new friends, something that proceeded to broaden her horizon.
Working in the Indian Premier League has been a dream for many personnel. Recently, Mayanti Langer, the current host of the Indian Premier League had revealed how she was rejected multiple times by Sony despite her being an experienced face as far as hosting marquee events are concerned.
“I got rejected for the IPL four times in a row. Before the 2011 edition, they called and said we have finalized you in the team, the next time we call you it will be about when to shoot the promo. It ended up not being me. They called me back and said– Listen you’ve just done the World Cup, you can’t do this, we need a new face,” Mayanti Langer told Verve Magazine.
As for Karishma Kotak, working in the IPL indeed opened a lot of gates for her, as far as her hosting career is concerned. The gorgeous diva has hosted a plethora of events since then which includes T10 League and Road Safety World series.
