  IPL season-2: Chennai Super Kings leaves for S Africa
Posted by: Sathish - 04-08-2009, 08:40 PM - Forum: Sports Zone - No Replies

Chennai: A 20-member Chennai Super Kings (CSK) team left for South Africa to participate in the second edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), starting April 18.

The team left by an Emirates Airlines to Johannesburg via Dubai. However, India captain Mahendra Singh Dohni, who is also the skipper of CSK, pace bowler Laxmipathy Balaji, Murali Vijay and coach-cum-player Stephan Fleming will join the team later.

As jubiliant fans also turned up to see the team off, security was tightened at Airport. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to shift the second edition of the T20 extravaganza to South Africa after the Indian Government expressed its inability to provide security to the tournament in India in view of the general elections clashing with the match schedule.

  PCB allows Pak players to play in IPL
Posted by: Sathish - 04-08-2009, 08:37 PM - Forum: Sports Zone - No Replies

The Pakistan Cricket Board did a U-turn from their earlier stance and have cleared the players to participate in IPL's second season to be played in South Africa.

According to Saleef Altaf, PCB's Chief Operating Officer, it has been conveyed to the IPL chairman Lalit Modi.

"The same has been conveyed to IPL Commissoner Lalit Modi via an official email by the PCB earlier today. A reply regarding the same is still awaited from Mr Modi's end," Altaf said.

However, chances of Pakistani players making to their respective teams look bleak as the squads were already announced.

"We can't include them in the teams because the team lists have already been made. Pakistan Cricket Board is very late in deciding. The Pakistan players will not be included," said Dhiraj Malhotra, IPL's Tournament Director.

  Shah Rukh, Aamir share stage to bat for film distributors
Posted by: Sathish - 04-08-2009, 10:54 AM - Forum: Entertainment - No Replies

Demand 50 per cent share in earnings from multiplexes.

Demanding “fair rights for Friday nights”, Bollywood actors Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan came together to voice the sentiments of the Bollywood fraternity over their demand for equal share of profit with multiplex owners. Failing to reach a mutually-agreeable revenue-sharing agreement, Bollywood producers have not released their films in multiplexes since April 4.

The bone of contention between the producer-distributors and multiplex owners is the revenue-sharing model, with producers demanding a 50 per cent share in the earnings and multiplex owners preferring to stick to the current model of 40 to 48 per cent, depending on the film’s performance.

“We, as entertainers, feel sorry for not being able to show new films for some time and we are here to explain our side of the argument,” said Aamir Khan in Mumbai at a press conference.

Pitching for an equal share for producers, Aamir said: “There is a need to relook at the revenue-sharing model. The gross and net profits made by the films have increased over the years, but the share of producers and distributors remains the same.” Film actor Shah Rukh Khan urged for ‘fair rights for Friday nights’, referring to a fair revenue-sharing agreement for the films released across multiplexes every Friday.

Commenting on the issue, Alok Tandon, CEO of Inox Leasuire, a multiplex chain, said: “We are ready to talk to the Bollywood producers. In fact, we have suggested that a sub-committee be formed by the two parties to look into the various contentious issues. Ideally, we would like a performance-based revenue-sharing formula between us and the producer-distributors, or else we will be forced to shut our shops.”

Industry estimates say that 30-odd films, including small- and medium-budget films, are now held back because of the deadlock. Some of the films that were slated for release this summer but are now being held back are Kambakkth Ishq, Love Aaj Kal, Kal Kisne Dekha, Jashn, Luck, Aladin, Kaminey, Main Aur Mrs Khanna and New York, among others.
