Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who was last seen in Vijay Krishna Acharya’s Thugs of Hindostan, has denied all rumors afloat regarding his family and their interest to buy equity stake in any of the franchises of the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL).
When asked about the same, Shahenshah of Bollywood quickly replied, "This news is incorrect.” Earlier various reports stated that the Bachchans were in talks with the Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals to buy stakes in the respective franchises.
While the talks with three-time champions CSK were reportedly unsuccessful, discussions with the Royals did not progress beyond the first round.
Interestingly, the Bachchan family already holds stakes in Indian Super League (ISL) franchise Chennaiyin FC and Pro Kabaddi League (PKL) franchise Jaipur Pink Panthers.
On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan will be next seen in Sujoy Ghosh's Badla, Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra and he is also gearing up to make his regional acting debut in Surender Reddy's Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy.
