Versatile actor Hiten Tejwani is all set to showcase his sporty talent as he will be seen as participant in the Box Cricket League.

One of the finest actors on TV industry Hiten Tejwani who was last seen in Balaji Telfilms popular show Pavitra Rishta on Zee TV will now be seen in a different role as he will be seen in a game reality show known as Box Cricket League which will be aired on Sony TV. While this is Hiten’s first sport reality show, he seems to be quite enthralled for this new show.

We got in touch with the actor to know more about his interest in cricket and why he thought of getting into BCL.

How did you think of getting into this game reality show BCL?
Last year when the pilot season was held, unfortunately I was not able to play in that season in fact they missed me as I didn’t get any call last season. This year I got a call from Babu Moshaye team, they asked me to play with them. So I gave a nod and thought of participating in the show.

Why did you choose Kolkata’s Babu Moshaye team?
The whole point was I was never aware about the contestants and the teams, about the good players, how strong the team is. So when I got a call from the Kolkata team’s owner Anita Hassanandani, I agreed and as the owner is a very good friend of mine. So she called me and asked whether I would like to play for her team or not and I heard that they were the runner up in the pilot season, they almost won the season. That is also one reason because if they can reach till the finals then the team has the spirit alive in them and more or less players are the same.

Which is your toughest competitor team?
See I don’t know because I have not seen them playing so I can’t comment. But I believe that all the teams must be having some strong point and weak point. There will be some good bowler, batsman or an all rounder which we will come to know after the matches will begin.

Do you used to play cricket before BCL?
I used to play lots of cricket till the time I started working. I used to play during my childhood in my building, in my lane and I used to be the captain of my team. We have won lots of matches under my captaincy.

BCL will make me relive my childhood moment where I will again become a kid so I am very excited to play in this league. Because as I started working I hardly used get time to play cricket so this will give us time to play cricket. We all are friends in all the teams so it will really be fun.

We wish Hiten all the best!
