All work and no play for Ayub
It's been quite a while since Ayub
Khan's cricket team, Actorletics has been seen on the field. This is
mainly due to his busy shooting schedule that's not allowing the actor
to take time out for his cricket team.
Ayub tells us, "Our team is very enthusiastic and very lively but the problem is that I am doing Uttaran,
is a daily. The schedule has been really hectic and I've not had any
time to spare. However, we are planning to get back on the field very
He adds that it has become increasing difficult to
play because the matches are held outside the city. He says, "That
becomes a major hurdle, but hopefully we'll soon be playing an
international match in London."
Talking about the team's journey, he says, "Till now, we've played 40
matches which include three tournaments. Out of that, we've even won
one. It's going great. The team has been really supportive and very
Ayub tells us that despite shooting for his daily, he manages to
practice for his team. He adds, "When we have matches, I've to take
just three to four days to practice and that is not very difficult.
Even during practice, playing a match is not that difficult. We reach
for the practice at around seven in the morning, practice for four
hours and then leave for our shooting."
But he also agrees that organising matches takes a lot of commitment.
"Basically, there are three of us who handle the organisation: Faisal
Khan, Rizvi and I. We've organised two sets of outfits, one (coloured)
for day and one (white) for night. For every match, we have to provide
the entire team with everything. Arranging this itself takes a lot of
energy. But we have a great time and as soon as we all get time, we
will get back on the field," he signs off.
