Kolkata may be her hometown but actress Riya Sen is not cheering for Kolkata Knight Riders but for Kochi Tuskers Kerala (KTK). She has a good reason for supporting the new IPL team – her 'good friend" Sreesanth is in it.
Yes, Riya seems to be clean bowled by Sreesanth. They have been linked ever since they shot a commercial for a jewellery brand together, not long ago, but they are not one to hide their affection for each other. The actress was spotted cheering for the speedstar at the DY Patil Stadium, Mumbai, on April 13. Unfortunately, KTK lost the match but the duo was spotted partying hard.
“Riya and Sreesanth seem quite friendly. They met during the shoot of a commercial and have stayed in touch with each other since then. Riya was at the stadium to cheer him. She sat throughout the match and was seen silently breaking into a prayer almost every time Sreesanth came to bowl. Unfortunately, Kochi lost the match," India Today quoted a source as saying.
It is said that Riya and Sreesanth are getting closer every passing day and former"s interest in cricket has grown by double fold ever since she met the latter. However, it is too early to say they are in love.
