Shahrukh Khan is an old name associated to IPL, but his rival Salman Khan's new entry in SRK's IPL territory left many tongues wagging over their decade-old rivalry. Reports confirm that Salman will be performing at the opening ceremony of IPL, whereas Shahrukh is busy playing the brand ambassador for his IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders in Mumbai.
In fact, it is rumoured that Salman has received his biggest pay cheque for a live act so far, for performing at this event. The buzz suggests that SRK just might give a miss to the event in order to avoid Salman. Also, Salman's sudden fantasy towards cricket after he bought the Bollywood team for the celebrity league, came as a surprise to many. So, does this mean Sallu is trying to pose a threat to SRK in his own region?
