Next week this time the biggest cricketing extravaganza -IPL (Indian Premiere League) would be on and cricket mania is surely going to be at an all time high for the following few weeks. Needless to say the presence of Bollywood stars in some cricket matches would truly be a case of sone pe suhaaga for every Indian.
The opening match of the IPL itself sees Dr.Vijay Mallya's Bangalore Royal Challengers take on Shahrukh Khan's Kolkata Knight Riders at the Chinaswamy stadium in Bangalore. While most of the team captains and owners would be present for the opening ceremony in Bangalore on April 18th, once the tournament starts, most owners would be seen only in the places where their teams are playing.
So this means that Shahrukh Khan would be seen cheering his team Kolkata Knight Riders wherever they play. The charismatic Khan is particularly looking forward to cheering his team at the spectacular Eden Gardens stadium in Kolkata. In fact, Khan has even decided to keep the ticket prices as cheap as Rs. 100 (lowest denomination) so that the youth can get to witness all the cricketing action live.
What's more, Shahrukh would be even handing over every 1000th purchased ticket personally to the spectator. The superstar has even urged some of his good friends to be present along with him to cheer his team. Surely, Shahrukh is going all out to promote his team and get maximum spectators to watch the action. After all it's no mean feat filling the massive Eden Gardens.
