RBN Web Desk: Popular actor Saheb Bhattacharjee will be the host for Indian Premier League (IPL) this year. He will anchor the show titled Game Plan to be broadcast on Jalsha Movies.
Saheb did not hide his excitement on landing the offer just after one round of audition. He dedicated it to his late friend Sonika Chauhan.
The actor told the media that he’s researching about the players and learning their performance statistics and scores. Saheb said that he wants to have all the numbers at his fingertips before the tournament starts.
The work involves travelling across the country and Saheb is excited at the prospect of meeting his favourite cricketers Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virat Kohli.
Saheb, by his own admittance, is not a great cricket enthusiast but loves the sport. He rather comes from a football family. The actor is the son of former India captain Subrata Bhattacharjee, while his brother-in-law is the all-time top goal scorer of the country, Sunil Chhetri.
Saheb made his acting debut with the 2008 TV serial Bandhan. His first film was Sandip Ray’s Gorosthane Sabdhan in the same year.
The IPL begins 7 April.
