There is a very big memory, you can say a hilarious one actually. I remember, when I got married, the next day, I was playing a match for my team. So, at the time of the reception, I had some team members who took me to one corner and persuaded me to play the next day.”
About his association with Celebrity Cricket League Sonu Sood shared, “For me, Celebrity Cricket League is more than just a game. It’s an opportunity for us actors to unite and have lots of fun on and off the field. I remember a hilarious incident when once on field I hit a shot in the air and within moments Manoj was under the ball. I screamed “Please drop it.” But he didn’t, and later in a fun manner came to the crease smiling and said, “Sorry, paaji, sorry yaar, ghalti hogaya. Now, I am very excited to see what this new season has in hold for all of us.”
