In the end, ‘Mega Blockbuster’ was revealed to be nothing but a promotional stunt by e-commerce platform Meesho. The stunt was exposed by BCCI president Sourav Ganguly. Ganguly’s social media team copy-pasted the whole script including the instruction “Please ensure that Meesho brand name or Meesho hashtag is nowhere mentioned in the September 1 post.”

Now, Sourav Ganguly’s new post seems to caption like “It was fun shooting for it! The new Mega Blockbuster is releasing soon! ​ #TrailerOut4thSept #MegaBlockbuster,” Ganguly’s present caption to this Instagram post now reads. Indian captain Rohit Sharma was excited about the new project as they wrote, “Butterflies in my stomach. A debut of a kind.” In this post, Suryakumar Yadav wrote, “ye kis line me a gaye aap?”

Although Sourav Ganguly’s official page had been deleted and re-uploaded the post, the social media users had taken screenshots of his original post which are currently going viral on Twitter. Earlier, Dada was trolled back in 2020 when he shared a watermarked photo of himself on Instagram. The former India skipper took to Instagram on to post an image from his Test debut at Lord’s in 1996, captioned “fanatastic memories”.

Ganguly had famously scored a century at the hallowed ground on debut. In the picture, Ganguly can be seen celebrating his century, with a young Rahul Dravid behind him in the background. But one can also see the watermark in the picture and his former teammate Yuvraj Singh wasted no time in pointing it out and trolling him. “Dada logo to hata lo! Your Bcci president now please be professional (sic),” he commented on the picture.

Meanwhile, in the Legends League Ganguly will be captaining the India Maharajas. He will most likely open the batting with Virendra Sehwag. Thereafter, the League would start from September 17 and go till October 8, 2022, playing 15 matches over 22 days in 6 cities.

India Maharajas: Sourav Ganguly (C), Virender Sehwag, Mohammed Kaif, Yusuf Pathan, Subramaniam Badrinath, Irfan Pathan, Parthiv Patel (wk), Stuart Binny, S Sreesanth, Harbhajan Singh, Naman Ojha (wk), Ashoke Dinda, Pragyan Ojha, Ajay Jadeja, RP Singh, Joginder Sharma and Reetinder Singh Sodhi.
