Bollywood actress and co-owner of Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Juhi Chawla, is a proud mother and she has every reason to be. Her 17-year-old daughter, Jhanvi Mehta, made history by becoming the youngest member to sit at the IPL auction table ever.
In an interview with IPL, Juhi’s husband Jay Mehta revealed that Jhanvi is very passionate about cricket. He said, “I think it’s a wonderful experience for her and it’s great to have her with us. She is now studying in England. She has come back for two-three days, which is great. We get to see her, plus she gets to participate in the auction. She is really passionate about cricket. I think it’s great that she can experience this.”
Jhanvi, who was doing quite an exercise with the bidding paddle at the auction table, also spoke in the IPL video, where she said, “I got bicep training [by continuously lifting the bidding paddle], which is good (laughs).”
Revealing about the one player she really wanted in the KKR line-up, she said, “Chris Lynn and I’m happy we got him. He hits a lot of sixes (laughs). So, it’s really fun to watch him play.”
It’s evident that Jhanvi, who was quite active at the KKR’s bidding table had done her research thoroughly before coming up for the mega-auction.
