Actor Salman Khan says that filmmakers should not shy away from releasing their films during the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket tournament, citing that one of his hit films was released during the Cricket World Cup.

“I don’t think there will be any difference if you release your film during IPL. My film, Biwi No 1 was released during World cup (1999),” he says. The fifth edition of IPL that kicked off on Wednesday will be on till May 27. With nine teams and 76 games, it promises to be a treat for cricket fans. So, which team he thinks will win the IPL, this year? “The best team should win. I have lots of friends who own the teams. Whoever plays the best should win,” he replies.
