Taapsee Pannu co-owns Team Pune 7 Aces in Premier Badminton League.

The talented actress is on a full swing. After her impressive performances in Manmarziyaan, she has ventured to fulfill her dream of buying a badminton team. She expresses that badminton is a family sport all over the county (India) and that everyone has at least played once, either for recreation or as a competitive sport. She reveals that as child she was always into sports that included badminton. She also remarks that she is ready to take her love of badminton to the next level.

The Manmarziyaan actress tweeted like this,

Taking my love for sports to the next level..... 
proud to Co- own the Pune franchise in @PBLIndiaLive called - Pune 7 Aces 
Along with @Kri_talent 

Asked why and how she had ventured the idea to buy a badminton team, she says,

I always wanted to get into sport and since, obviously, I couldn’t be a player — that’s not practical — I wanted to be associated with something that I’ve played or known well. Badminton has been a special sport for all of us, because everyone has played this sport at least once in their life.

Also, it’s not really a switch [from the movies]. A couple of years back, when I started my wedding planning company, people thought the same way: that it’s a diversion. It’s not. I’m getting into a business where I feel completely disconnected from my main profession: acting. It helps me rejuvenate when I use my energy in different directions, and then come back to acting.  

She also reveals her current team strategy, she says,

I’m entering the league with the Pune team. It’d be called Pune Seven Aces. Since the [player] auction is on October 8, in Delhi, my effort will be to have a good mix of ethnicity, so we can have a strong team from all over. The mantra will be, ‘make sure they serve the entertainment attached to badminton’. We want to make sure you enjoy the match.

On being asked about her favorite shutter, she replied,

My favourite players will always be my fellow Indians, including PV Sindhu and Saina Nehwal. I always cheer for them, no matter who’s playing opposite them.
The actress reveals a sneak peak before announcing the big news in her instagram photo with a shuttlecock in her hand. She posts,

Some announcements deserve due attention. This Leo needs all your attention soon ..... 😁 stepping into a new horizon. Watch this space for more info :) #PushingTheBoundries #InItToWinIt

She then posts a video via instagram that gives more insights into her newly purchased team.  She writes,

Taking my love for sports to the next level...

Proud to co-own a new franchise in “Premiere Badminton League” season 4 - Pune 7 Aces along with @kri_talent 😁 🏸
