New Delhi: Following in the footsteps of Shah Rukh Khan, Juhi Chawla, Preity Zinta and Shilpa Shetty, Salman Khan is said to be mulling to join the league of IPL team owners. The 48-year-old actor, who came to flag off the Little Heart Marathon - organised by Ness Wadia, was reportedly seen in deep conversation with the latter regarding the IPL.

According to a tabloid, the `Dabangg` actor has lately been inquisitive about the IPL tournament and is also said to be considering to own a stake in an Indian Premier League team.

"Salman was the chief guest at this marathon that was organised by BJ Wadia hospital for underprivileged children. Post the flag off, Salman was seen talking to Ness. The two were discussing the IPL in great detail," a source said.

However, it is also said that Khan has often shown interest in the tournament owing to his love for cricket.

"There is no clear indication that he will pick up a stake in an IPL team his interest in it has only grown with time. He has been making enquiries with Ness. In fact, he has also been asking his other friends about the same. The actor is trying to work out how he can get a piece of the IPL pie as he loves cricket and has a lot of cricketer friends," an onlooker said.

Well, it wouldn`t come as a surprise to us if Salman shifts his focus from movies to try his luck in IPL.
