Kapil Dev's Ek Nayi League

Kapil Dev has been trending on Twitter ever since he announced his new league- #EkNayiLeague and he invited several celebrities from different fields to play in his new league. But in all the videos that were made to introduce his new league, he warned them not to play with their hearts because if they do, then they were sure to fail. But what is this new league that Kapil is talking about?

The suspense will soon unfold but for now, let’s guess as to what Kapil might be referring to.  Is it a new game show? And since Kapil Dev joined the twitter bandwagon just to announce the new league, it may be an online game show.

What is the secret behind the multiple warnings issued by Kapil Dev in his deep, baritone voice about not using your heart while playing in the league? It kind of hints that either this is going to be a show which has to be played using a lot of wit and brain power or this might be another one of those reality shows where celebrities are pitched against each other and where emotions and sentiments take a back seat. Kind of those Bigg Boss shows where the contestants have to be ruthless and manipulative to survive. Survival of the vilest!

In the Youtube videos, Kapil Dev invited several celebrities, including sportsperson and men from the entertainment business- M S Dhoni, Sania Mirza, Yuvraj Singh, Kapil Sharma, to come and play in his league. So does this mean that the list of contestants is going to be a mixed bag from different professional fields? It will definitely make things interesting.

Another guess of mine is it’s going to be a show involving people who have retired from their professions because in one of the videos Kapil Dev mentions about how when he retired from cricket, Dev Anand, the iconic film star, mentioned that “stars never retire”. Could this be a hint that the new league will have a lot of experienced veterans in their second innings of their life?

Well, the guessing game is definitely fun and I’m waiting impatiently for the suspense to be revealed. So here’s my final guess-

Ek Nayi League has to be a game show, something like Kaun Banega Crorepati, where the questions posed to the contestants will require a lot of intelligence and knowledge of general affairs to be answered correctly. The show may also combine trivia questions with a little bit of physical challenges where contestants have to compete against each other to survive. If participants use their heart when playing or show emotional weakness towards their opposition then they would have to forfeit the game. And you know what would make things more exciting? If the contestants are celebrities from different walks of life, working in various businesses coming together in a game show providing fun, information and lot of laughs.

I’m waiting with bated breath for Kapil’s Ek Nayi League to be launched, so that I can know if my guess was right. What do you think Ek Nayi League is going to be?
