Kolkata: May 23, 2013

Asserting that he was a football fan, Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor on Thursday expressed dismay at the Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing scam, saying “it’s shameful” and blots the entire platform.

“Its very shameful that something like this has happened, and because of two or three mischievous people the entire platform of IPL is spoiled,” he said.

“I think it’s such an entertaining platform… the entire country loves it… the entire world loves it, and there are many players who are passionately and seriously playing the sport. Because of such culprits and mischief makers, their names are also tainted,” Kapoor told media persons while promoting his forthcoming release “Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani” at Kolkata.

Three Rajasthan Royal players, including India’s former Test and ODI bowler Sreesanth, have been arrested in Mumbai by Delhi Police in connection with spot-fixing.

Later, Bollywood actor Vindoo Dara Singh Randhawa, a bookie and a hawala operator were also arrested by the Mumbai police in the scam that was busted May 16.

“I have no idea…I also read from the newspapers… I have nothing to say about that. it’s not about Bollywood, it’s about a human being. It’s shameful…,” said Kapoor.

Directed by Ayan Mukerji, the movie is produced by Dharma Productions and stars Deepika Padukone and her former beau Ranbir Kapoor.

“Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani”, releasing May 31, also stars features Koechlin and Sidharth Roy Kapoor.
