There is no comparison.
In IPL cricket takes center stage. It's REAL competitive cricket today in IPL. A Decade back I might agree if IPL is a circus exhibition where monkeys dance but not today. The passion of cricketers to excel is genuine. The players give their 100%. It's a do or die intense competition where all act very very professional.
Now at Cannes "film" festival films take back stage. Fashion & monkey business takes limelight over real film celebration. They do disservice to film industry. They should call it Cannes fashion festival not a film festival.
Don't insult IPL by comparing it with some monkey business.
