Cricketers or Actors???

Well…i have been waiting so long to write about this…

Shouldn’t our country’s cricket team show interest towards game (practice) rather than act in advertisements???

Why is

1)Dhoni needed for an add based on biscuit or for a fan???

2)Tendulkar needed to advertise Boost???

3)Ganguly for a 50 paise candy???(a long time ago,this ad was telecast)

4)Yuvraj and Sreesanth for hair gel???

5)Pathan and Sreesanth for Nike?

and so on….

If they had showed interest in practicing then our team would have been better and stronger…

I also vaguely remember about a rule where either sports personalities or film celebs were banned from acting in commercials,ads,etc etc!!!

What has happened to that rule???

    ACTORS ACTORS ACTORS !!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thats all I have to say especially to the Indian team…

    I used to love this game when people used to play for pride and to attain Glory for one’s country….

    But I hate it the MOST now a days …

    People playing for money…

    and even leavin aside their game….they act in front of our TV sets and earn ….-________-

    well i never said that they skip practice sessions….i juz said that y do they need to act in commercials???they can spend tht time in practicing or trying to hone their skills….

  5. Arul says:

    well its jus dat every1 likes 2 earn money !!

  6. They are paid so much for the ADS, just because of the talents that they exhibit in Cricket. Once their performance goes down, no company will call them for their ADS. So the no need to worry about them.

    And another annoying thing celebrities are brought in to promote the team in IPL, WTF!

  8. pnithya says:

    Big Bucks!! They earn a LOT in one Ad which might take just an hour to for them to act in.

  9. Vivek says:

    big bucks!!!ok fine…
    but they spend more time acting in ads….it takes more than hour sis!!!

  10. Kavin says:

    They are getting huge amount for that… it is not bad for cricketers to act in commercials unless they stop showing interest in cricket…

    Everyone has a right to earn their bread and butter. (well, if you can afford it, maybe swiss cheese too 🙂 ) The point is, just because you like cricket, don’t expect cricketers not to act in ads.

    Why don’t you try applying the same rule to yourself, instead of blogging (and some people make money out of it), if only one were to do social service or maybe even work like the Japs or Chings, India could do much better.

    Don’t ever bring national prode into the picture.

    What do you think about the Govt. officials ? If only they used their time properly.

    Bottom Line: Let’s all mind our own businesses and leave the cricketers alone. If they do badly, it’s (almost) never because of the ads.

    Oh, and if you used all of your time to “hone” your skills, you’ll end up in some hospital or another. Either for physical reasons or mental reasons. See the Aussies if you don’t believe me. 🙂 Bunch of dimwits with mouths bigger than cricket fields.

  13. Vivek says:

    its juz my opinion dude

  14. HaRi says:

    Its a mutual benefit for them and we have nothing to do except bare it all and watch. Someone likes it and some ppl dislike. Opinion differs dude.

  15. ravi says:

    i could not correlate hw endorsing ome product would affect an individuals performance in the field..
    dnt v’ve Sachin-Boost, Ricky Ponting-Fila, Brian Lara-MRF. v can add on innumerable players..
    it only depends on d attitude of a player.. if he has to sustain in his game, he needs to play well on tht particular D-day.. apart frm tht i dnt believe tht endorsement would affect players game. as rightly said by Hari, opinion differs.. so cant blame any individual as such…

  16. Vinod says:

    Well its time they show more interest in cricket…

  17. Prince Vegeta says:

    Cricketers have got these ads ONLY coz they’ve played well. Isn’t it?

    So, what’s the need to critise’em!

  18. Vivek says:

    @aditya a.k.a Prince vegeta sheesh…let tht name atleast rest here dude…u talk abt him in dbz comm all the time….here too??? … :-O

    i agree and i aint criticizing them….its juz my opinion!!!

  19. Dhruv says:
