If things go fine, we might witness another Bollywood drama soon, but this time the drama would take place on the hockey fields. After cricket, it is hockey that is listed amongst the top growing games in India. Inspired by the successful mix of cricket and Bollywood during IPL, the World Series Hockey (WSH) organisers' have approached the two big names of the tinsel town - Shahrukh Khan and Salman Khan.
The WSH will be played across eight cities in India from December 17 to January 12. According to WSH sources, Wizcraft are keen to get SRK on board the Delhi team, "SRK has been close to them for a while now. He was also brand ambassador of one of the editions of their event, IIFA -- International Indian Film Academy awards. SRK is also a huge lover of hockey and has even played the game at school and college level."
In fact SRK's love for hockey was once again evident in his movie Chak De India. But on the other hand, Salman Khan love for hockey and football is well known too. "Salman's connection to WSH comes through Harish Thawani, the CEO of Nimbus, the event's prime promoters. They both hail from Mumbai's Bandra area and are good friends. Thawani has discussed the idea with him and the actor has, in principle, agreed to be part of the Mumbai brigade," the source informed the media.
Once again the industry's age-old rivals Shahrukh and Salman would come face to face but this time they will be seen fighting hockey battle.
