Details about Sunanda Pushkar: The mysterious owner of IPL Kochi team

Sunanda Pushkar, the mysterious owner of the new IPL Kochi team, is believed to be the third would be wife of Shashi Tharoor. Shashi Tharoor had been married twice before. His first marriage was with Tilottama Mukherji, an academician based in Kolkata. Tharoor used to know her back in her school days in Kolkata. His second marriage was with Christa Giles, a Canadian civil servant. Christa Giles currently works with the United States on disarmament issues. Sunanda Pushkar has her own spa business in Dubai.

It was IPL Chairman, Lalit Modi, who broke out this confidential piece of information by giving out the names of the stake holders in the new IPL franchise. In a Tweeter message, Lalit Modi said,

“I was told not to get into who owns Rendezvous, specially Sunanda Pushkar. Why?”

The new IPL Kochi team has seven owners, they are-

Rendezvous Sports World (25% free)

Rendezvous Sports World (1% purchased)

Anchor (27%)

Parinee (26%)

Film Waves (12%)

Anand Shyam (8%)

Vivek Venugopal (1%).

The Rendezvous Sports World is a consortium which consists of eight members- Kisan, Shailender and Pushpa Gaikwad, Sunanda Pushkar, Puja Gulathi, Jayant Kotalwar, Vishnu Prasad, Sundip Agarwal. Out of the 25% free equity, Sunanda Pushkar holds 18%.

The signing of the franchise agreement took place on April 10, 2010. News reports say that, a union minister called up an IPL official and told not to look for details about Sunanda Pushkar. Later, it was revealed that Sunanda Pushkar is close with Shashi Tharoor and the two were seen together in New Delhi’s social circles for quite some times.

Interestingly, the idea of creating a “five member consortium” to have an IPL team for Kochi was spearheaded by Tharoor himself. Though he mentioned that he has no financial interest, it is now clear that Tharoor had other intentions. The sale price of Kochi IPL team was Rs.1,530 crores and 18% of that amount is a big amount and if it comes out that Tharoor is some how related in the matter will pose a big threat for his political career.

  1. Shashi Tharoor is taking this female with him on official tours. In Sltanate of Oman she was using the same car provided by Oman Government and staying in the same hote. The Indian Ambassodor in Oman was pimping for Shashi. He is a security threat to India.

  3. Mr.Lalit Modi and his mafia don Mr.Naredra Modi Chief Minister of Gujarat, stood for Ahmedabad to have the frachise. They failed to break the Ice. Now he is acting like a Mr.Clean. Does he had guts to reveal the stake holders of Rajasthan Royals, Deccan Charges etc. Mr. Modi is a goon.

  7. Whatever be the relation between sunanda and shashi , its their personal matter . I dont think anyone will say that Lalit Modi has good intentions in this regard. Obviously he is frustrated . Its as if he is acting for someone else . If you think clearly , it will be very clear that all this happened coz the big guns did not the IPL franchisee this time . Now they are going bad .

  8. Mr.Shashi Tharoor has done any thing wrong as a minister. What he has done, he stood for Kerala State. Just like any Keralite, who wanted to have IPL in their state too. Why Mr.Modi(he is a drug pedlar who was arrested in States for keeping 4gms of Cocaine in his possesion. Look at the fate of our countrymen, to have a goon like Modi to head a Cricket league. Now he is a frustrated man, since he and his mafia failed to disintergate patrons of Kochi IPL team. It is high time that BCCI to see modi to vaccate his place. MODI IS A PERVT.

  12. apart from tharoor there could not have been any malayalee who could have brought IPL to kerala. his personal life is his private affair we must respect his privacy. I believe tharoor was honest in his approach but he must be careful as some vested interest people are baying to humiliate him.

  15. Shashi Tharoor did a mistake by involving his girl friend. But Modi wanted another city to get IPL and other city could not compete with Kochi. Then Modi started blaming regularities in Kochi ownership and thrown a stone on Shashi Tharoor's weakness. Both are craps and not good fellows

  19. Just like any other minister who would have stood for his state, Shashi succeeded in getting a team from Kerala. If you look at any team, some owner will be very closely related to some minister. It means nothing but normal.

    Modis intention was very clear to move new team from Kochi. Simple fact that he posted details of Kochi team owners and not owners of any other teams means a lot. It means he was partial and had wrong intentions, which got resolved by timely intervention by Tharoor. He lost his professionalism and acted very desperate after that. Now a war is declared, and causalities will be there from both sides.

    But considering that Kochi team is formed with a clear confidentiality term in it, BCCI asking Modi for explanation, Question why only Kochi team ownership is exposed, Modi has no proof to backup apart from his statement, I guess it is going to be in Kochis way. Mostly will be end in Modis forced resignation.

  21. what happened to these people? why u r blaming shashi tharoor for having a girl friend? Do Indians feel that having a girlfriend is sin?? Shame on you guys....!!!! And, i saw a comment above that shashi tharoor is not elected as UN secretary general due to his weakness. Really pathetic statement, I feel pity for you Mr Anonymous..Is there any other Indian who was at least considered for this coveted position? NO...a big NO. His name was considered only because of his qualifications and efficiency..Leave his private life to himself..why u ppl r bothered? And, congress party has elected him as minister not for the usual cunning/criminal political background familiar in Indian politics, He is a talented bureaucrat...!! thats why congress need him.

    Wake up guys...leave shashi taroor, sania mirza and all to themselves and do your job well and look after your family.....

  22. Leave Narendra Modi... he has done what he could have done best for gujarat... Here is an interesting scene between Lalith modi, chairman of IPL and Shashi tharoor, union minister and once upon a time candidate of UN (thank god... for his loosing, otherwise he never had thought of the UN morals). It would be also interesting to find out if Tharoor is being a scapegoat to save some big shark from his party or someone else !!!

  23. There is no need to be personal it is frustration for Lalit Modi of not getting the Ahemdabad team that he is doing like this but I am sure Shashi tharoor will come clean at the meeting of BCCI

    ReplyDelete
  24. The frustration of Mr.Lalit Modi made him to disclose the confidentiality of the agreement. He didn't think that kerala will bid for such a big amount. (Never under estimate the power of south India). Hat's off to BCCI for making such a responsible person as chairman of IPL, a man with such criminal records should be removed away from IPL Board. If not Mr.Lalith Modi should have his balls tightened and disclose rest of IPL team. DOES HE HAVE SUCH GUTS IN HIS BALLS.

  25. My message is for those who believe, Shashi Tharoor was 'only' being a good Keralite and doing a great service to the state of Kerala, It is not True. And Why ; (1) None of the stake holders in 'Rendevous' are Keralite the money earned will go forth to the mainly Bombaby based non malayali stake holders. (2) 'Rendevous is doubious in origin found only few months ago, still to clarify how it managed 15,000 corores in investment. (3) Sunanda Pushkar, Kashmiri origin current lady love of Shashi T. has been made a board member to front 70 - 75 corers for him. There is no way Sunanda has that much money to invest, she runs a beauty centre in Dubai. It seems to me that the only service Shashi T. was doing is to Himself !!!

  26. I have seen Shashi Tharoor with his arm candy Sunanda Pushkar enjoying many glamorous parties in Dubai. He never takes up any causes of Indians, there are many a construction labourers or other such dire issues. Dubai is his play ground. What a shame you are Shashi Tharoor.

  27. LALIT MODI IS CONGRESS NOT RELATED TO NARENDRA MODI

  28. Shashi Tharoor-The THIRD TIME would be married minister is smooth talking operator who it seems with this deal has already cornered 70 crores by by proxy through his "love interest" This guy is good for nothing idiot and this latest affair proves a liar and low life corrupt bastard. It is time that he is shown the door and this franchise is cancelled. I hope some one will challenge it leaglly.

  29. Sunanda Pushkar is able to make people capable of joint performance, to make their weaknesses irrelevant, says the Management Guru Peter Drucker. It creates harmony in working together - equilibrium in thoughts and actions, goals and achievements, plans and performance, products and markets. It resolves situations of scarcity, be they in the physical, technical or human fields, through maximum utilization with the minimum available processes to achieve the goal. Lack of management causes disorder, confusion, wastage, delay, destruction and even depression. Managing men, money and materials in the best possible way, according to circumstances and environment, is the most important and essential factor for a successful management

  34. A goon like Lalit Modi has managed to put IPL India on the world stage. An MOS for External Affairs should have kept his affairs external rather than promote her in the name of cricket in Kerla. Cricket does not exist in Kerla. Communism does. Sunanda Pushkar is nothing but a good looking woman that Sashi Tharoor has the hots for. If he wants to gift her sweat equity for nothing, he can do it at his cost. Leave brand IPL alone. Its bigger than Sashi or Sunanda

  35. If you are minister and have power, it does not mean that you misuse it for giving benefits to your girl friends. It is like what happens in govt offices. If your boss allows you to use office car he is assigned, you will say he is very good boss, but in reality he is misusing govt facility and earning free goodwill.

  36. Seriously..Shashi has tried pullin d thread a bit too far this time..He isnt a kid to be forgiven everytime for his pathetic mistakes...
    He is nothing but a spoilt brat who never knew how to respect public issues..I dont understand how did he even manage to get into bureaucracy..(Obviosly contacts & cash..)
    Nevertheless..As he once said "Travelling cattle class in solidarity with the holy cows"
    Its time he accepts a slap from the partymen and resigns "IN SOLIDARITY !!!".

  37. Sonia likes Shashi Tharoor. That is the reason she does not want to take any action against him. Also one more thing to be noted is that corruption runs in the veins of all congress rogues.

    **** Important Questions to Mr. Shashi Tharoor****

    1) As a cabinet minister, what have you done for the welfare of India except taking photo's with your GF & making controversy statements ??

    2) Do you think that you are eligible for being
    national leader with this attitude??

    3) Could you tell me what are the advantage for Kerala people with this Kochin IPL ?? This IPL Team would be a positive initiative for the development of ordinary Malayali citizens in Kerala ?? Do you think this IPL Team would eliminate the common Kerala 's challenge of becoming Industrialized State or Infrastructure development inside the kerala???

    What ever you have done so far is only for your girl friend & you ..

    This clearly shows your selfishness & irresponsiblity .

    We malayalis would be happy for you If you have done some thing good for India & Kerala.

    Instead , You created bad image to the kerala politics & you lost Trust from the Kerala People...

    Thanks for resigning..!!!! We hope you would change your attitude in the future .

  42. i really appreciated ur thoughts Mr Nair..
    tharoor is just a useless guy for indian politics and he is just a expense for govt of india.

    the best he can do is just resign from the cabinet and do realise his offenses and mistakes what he made in his life.

    may god bless him .

  43. The biggest achievement of Sashi Taroor is writing a book on cricket. What is the connection between Kerala and cricket? When one claim that cricket is a need of the time as well as Kerala is concerned I feel that some vested interest including media with advertisement income as there interest are Hijacking the interest of the youth in Kerala.

    We want a metro rail, a smart city with proper companies in place, Power, rice for the poor and needy, drinking water facility and proper town planning.

    Did shashi who is projected as a vibrant minister by the congress politicians take any special interest in fulfilling this dreams..

    At least tell what is his portfolio, Is his present deeds connected any way to his normal official duties.

    Gaekwadh has not answered the question "Who is the person who has introduced Sunanda Pushkar to you ? (Times now)"

    The website of ministry of corporate affairs in online and all filing and allotment of shares has to be done online. The registrar of companies wont allow the issuance of sweat equities overlooking the provisions of law. Then what is the interest of Rendezvouz for the issuance of an irregular shares to the lady?

    Every thing points the finger to the caesere's wife and the person should be over and above suspicion?

    Cricket is just an entertainment? It is not bread winner to the Kerala folks. Neither it can help it. Shashi has stooped so low when he defended that he was just a mendor for bringing cricket to Kerala. Our engineers and professionals can not play cricket.

    Hope the former India's representative to U.N is not ignorant on these facts.

    Moreover his attitude in the office right from the begining did not in any way impress Keralites. He was so childish and often infamous for induldging in babbage. The great corporate personality has ditched himself when he chose to enjoy his post rather than assuming responsibilities. Can he ever stand anywhere near the great Jawaharlal Nehru whom he always use to praise in his speeches.

  44. A person who marries repeatedly, is not a responsible, matured and stable person. He is sex oriented, flirting type. He is misusing his look and charm only to seduce new ladies. His first wife said to be acamedician, school time friend and he has two children. What those children are feeling to-day. I pity for his first wife who fell in love with a good looking man, may be only for his charm and talking ability. How such a person can do good to masses.

    wow..that's rich...just because he has got married twice and now probably for the third time...he becomes a bad human being? It's true he is a handsome man and a good orator but I wonder if he got to such a big position in the U.N just because of that...

    I believe he is not cut for Indian politics though...you have to be sly,conniving and an ass..and Tharoor is not...it is all alleged and it is quite possible that he is being made a scapegoat...
    plus it's extremely funny to see so many politicians going against him...seeing that 99% of them are proven to be criminals,while in Tharoor's case ..it's all alleged and I for one would rather wait and see to what the IT Dept and the inquiry has to say.
