Sports time for B-Town starsApril 15th, 2009 - 9:48 pm ICT by Sampurn Wire
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.
So top names like Shah Rukh Khan, Shilpa Shetty, Preity Zinta, Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan would be gracing the front benches there rather than taking the heat and pollution in India for the sake of work.
Preity, Shah Rukh and Shilpa are there to support and cheer for their respective teams.
In the 2008 bidding wars, Shah Rukh had bagged the Kolkata team for a huge amount of $75.9 million (approx Rs.296 crores), along with Juhi Chawla and her husband Jai Mehta.
Preity Zinta along with her man Ness Wadia became proud owners of the Mohali team, and Shilpa Shetty owns the winning team of 2008, Rajasthan Royals along with hr beau Raj Kundra.
Akshay is in South Africa for work – he’s shooting for his program “Fear Factor II’. Hrithik was recently in the country for a TV commercial shoot is mixing business with pleasure.
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. -Sampurn Media
