Indian Premier League (IPL) matches might be a craze among Bollywod stars, but actress Eesha Kopikar does not like the tournament because she believes it divides the country into different teams.
"For me, may the best person win. I did watch the World Cup because I am an Indian and I love my country. But what happens in IPL is that the country gets divided into different teams. I don't like it," she said here Thursday at the Gudi Padwa celebrations.
The 36-year-old is not at all fascinated by cricket.
"Not much. Actually I have seen my father and my brother watching cricket like crazy since I was a kid. They used to forget everything that was happening around them. I don't get so engrossed in cricket," said the actress of films like "Pinjar", "36 China Town" and "Don - The Chase Begins".
Esha is making her debut in Marathi films with "Maat", being directed by Manohar Sarvankar.
Talking about the status of the film, Eesha said: "My Marathi film is almost complete, two songs are left. We have started post-production and dubbing. It is my debut in the Marathi film industry, so I am a little nervous."
