Indian Premier League

If some are "heartbroken", others are disappointed with the sport getting tainted - Bollywood celebrities are candidly expressing their discontent over spot-fixing that has cast a shadow over the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL).

Three Rajasthan Royal players, including India pacer S. Sreesanth, have been arrested by Delhi Police in connection with spot-fixing. Later Bollywood actor Vindu Dara Singh Randhawa was arrested by the Mumbai police in connection with the scam busted May 16.

"I am heartbroken because I have watched the IPL and I am a very big Mumbai Indians fan. I am heartbroken and I don't think I am in a position to comment. I just feel sport should not get tainted by such things. It's very sad," film director Nikhil Advani told reporters Thursday when asked about the spot-fixing scandal.

He was speaking on the sidelines of the first-look launch of his directorial venture "D-Day". It stars Arjun Rampal and Irrfan.

When asked, Arjun said: "It's disgusting... cricket is like a religion to our country and when corruption comes out so openly, you feel so disappointed that cricket has to go through that for money. It's a sad time for cricket."

Irrfan, who was with Arjun and Advani at the event, said that for him "it was not a surprise as you can make out things are corrupt".

The IPL final is on May 26.

    We love Cricket and its sad that we have to see all this come out for IPL. IPL has been so much fun and has become so popular recently and I am afraid its probably going to get banned because of the corruption and unfair practices going on :(
