Actor Rafi Malik, who played for Delhi Dragons in Ekta Kapoor and Anand Mishra’s MTV BCL, talks about how he loved being part of the sports reality show and the drama surrounding it.
How was the experience of being part MTV BCL?
The experience is always good when it comes to cricket. It becomes even more special when all your colleagues play. It takes it to another level of fun, enjoyment and craziness.
The youth has connected to the show and ratings are high, what is the feedback you are getting?
The feedback I am getting is really good. I fell that the youth are really loving this season.
Rakhi Sawant, Rajeev Thakur, Hiten Tejwani, Arshi Khan, Chestha Bhagat did a lot of drama on the pitch and audiences are loving it. Comment.
Who doesn’t like drama especially when they get to see their favorite television celebrities? There are so many celebrities in BCL and so there is bound to be some drama.
Do controversies always help an actor? What is your viewpoint?
Some people did drama because they were genuinely under pressure of performing well, others did it for fun and a few did it for self-importance. I have said this many times that any controversy is good for being in the limelight. But personally, I have never done this.
Bigg Boss kind of content always attracts audiences. Comment
Bigg boss is a different show all together as the audiences get to see the real image or the overrated reality of their favourite celebrities. Their personal lives becomes public and they get to know how a person or a celebrity is in his/her life or how he behaves when put in a tough situation. This is why this show works.
Who has been your favourite player in the league and why?
My favorite player in the league has not been one as everyone has put a lot of efforts. We are all shooting and it is tough to take out time. So all our efforts need to be appreciated.
Who was the most irritating player on the field and why?
I wasn’t really irritated by anyone on the field. But waiting for the long periods to play was what got to me.
Any interesting incident from the field? Please share.
I had a rollercoaster ride this season as I was struggling with injuries and still playing for my team. There have been quite few good and bad incidences. I would want my fans to watch these and so I won’t be talking about that.
