Watch out for the action packed drama as the Superstars of South and Bollywood gear up for the Maha Yudh of cricket again. CCL-2 is back in action, and this time it gets bigger and better. If the first season saw 4 teams slug it out for the title, Season II gets bigger with the addition of 2 more teams – the Bengal and Malayalam film industries.
Owned by eminent film producer Boney Kapoor and the gorgeous Sridevi, the Bengal film industry’s Bengal Tigers will be mentored by former Indian Captain Saurav Ganguly and led by prominent actor Jeet. Also joining them will be Kerala Super Stars of the Malayalam film industry owned by National Award winning actor Padmashree Lt. Col. V. Mohanlal and one of cinemas’ most successful business women, Lizzy Priyadarshan. The team will be led by Superstar Indrajeet while Mohanlal will double up as its iconic player. Although, CCL has been approached by several other film fraternities, according to its existing policy, not more than 2 new teams can be included each season.
After the roaring success of the CCL Season I and the vast reach it managed to achieve, we have decided to take Season II to an international destination that’s home to a large Indian Diaspora. The iconic Sharjah Cricket Stadium has been selected to host the grand opening ceremony of CCL Season II. This is where the regional stars will reach out to national audience and the nationally renowned stars connect more strongly with their regional audience.
The explosive multi-starrer action entertainer will take off in the first week of January. Kick starting the frenzy will be the Curtain Raiser to be held on 19th December at HICC, Novotel Cyberabad. The event will unveil 100 heroes from the 6 film industries who will be part of Season II – a first in the history of Indian cinema. The likes of Salman Khan, Bobby Deol, Suneil Shetty, Sohail Khan from Mumbai Heroes, Venkatesh, Srikanth, Tarun from Telugu Warriors, Shivraj Kumar, Sudeep, Dhruva from Karnataka Bulldozers, Abbas, Jiva, Arya from Chennai Rhinos, Indrajeet, Prithviraj from Kerala Super Stars, Jeet, Jishu and Indraneel from Bengal Tigers will scorch the ramp along with gorgeous divas Kangana Ranaut, Genelia, Kaajal Agarwal, Shriya Saran, Richa Gangopadhyay, Charmee, Sameera Reddy, Lakshmi Rai, Riya Sen, Raima Sen, Amala Paul.
