Will the Indian Premiere League be the same without the mesmerizing Katrina Kaif waving encouragingly at the players? Maybe that’s an exaggeration, but the IPL will be missing one pretty face this time as Kat has pulled out of Vijay Mallya’s team.
While it was rumoured that the 26 year-old actress might be joining as the brand ambassador of the Kochi Tuskers Kerala or the Pune Warriors, Kaif’s spokesperson has announced that she “…is not a part of this 2011 IPL season nor were there any talks on her becoming brand Ambassador for any team.” It is now being said that as Kat endorses a Middle East airlines, their clause states that she cannot be associated with another airlines or any liquor brand, directly or indirectly.
In the earlier IPL season, Kat was the face of Vijay Mallya’s Royal Challengers Bangalore team. With the news of Deepika Padukone’s intimacy with Siddhartha Mallya, Katrina was said to distance herself from the team. Katrina and Deepika’s history with actor Ranbir Kapoor has also caused tensions between the actresses.
Well, at least we’ll have Deepika cheering the boys this time.
