Juhi Chawla had taken to Instagram to share a picture of the trio from the auction and had called them a "bunch of young owners." Later, speaking o Indian Express, she said that they are going to have a more active role in the IPL team.
“Not just the future, they are the present of the team. It is very funny how there was a time when our kids would be at home and we would be on the screen. Suddenly, it was the other way around because I was home watching my daughter on-screen. It was beautiful. God bless her, Aryan and Suhana. I wish them all the best,” Chawla had said.
