Thiruvananthapuram: Acclaimed director Priyadarshan on Saturday said he is padding up to acquire a stake in the newly formed Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kochi Tuskers Kerala.
"I am interested in this team and to that extend, we are having a business meeting to take forward our interest in acquiring stake in Kochi Tuskers. The first meeting is to take place in Mumbai on the 22nd of this month," Priyadarshan said.
Priyadarshan, who is in the city as the newly appointed chairman of the Kerala State Chalachitra Academy (Motion Picture Academy of the Kerala State), added: "It is basically my friends who are not in the film industry. Yes, we are serious in this, but then it depends on things like what is going to be the money involved and also the returns associated with it."
