So top names like Shahrukh Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Preity Zinta and Akshay Kumar would be gracing the front benches there rather than taking the heat and pollution in India for the sake of work.
Preity, Shahrukh and Shilpa are there to support and cheer for their respective teams. Shahrukh owns the Kolkata Knight Riders along with Juhi Chawla and her husband Jai Mehta.
Preity Zinta along with her man Ness Wadia became proud owners of the Mohali team Kings XI Punjab, and Shilpa Shetty owns the winning team of 2008, Rajasthan Royals along with her beau Raj Kundra.
Akshay is in South Africa for work – he is shooting for his program 'Fear Factor II". Other Bollywood actors are like to go there to support the teams of their fellow actors. The IPL Season II is staring tomorrow, i.e, April 18.
So South Africa is getting coloured with the hues of B-Town. Fans and audiences really do have some real entertainment to look forward to.
Most big Bollywood stars are heading to South Africa and not different cities of India like last year, for the Indian Premier League (IPL) matches.
