Kolkata, May 22 (IANS) For the cast and crew of Shah Rukh Khan-produced Bollywood movie “Always Kabhi Kabhi”, a packed Eden Gardens was an “intimidating sight”, said one of the crew members Sunday.
Debutant director Roshan Abbas and rest of the actors present at the historic ground to watch Shah Rukh Khan-owned Kolkata Knight Riders’ Indian Premier League game against Mumbai Indians rooted for KKR all through the match Sunday.
When asked who will win the IPL all the actors, including SRK, shouted in unison: “KKR, KKR.”
“I am a frustrated sportsperson and a film star. So I get others to do it for me…in lieu of me,” said SRK cheekily on his promoting young talent in sports and movies.
As KKR player Manoj Tiwary lofted Ray Price for a towering maximum over the long on in the fifth over, Bollywood celebs Sanjay Kapoor, Priyanka Chopra and SRK were seen dancing and waving in joy while the capacity crowd erupted.
With Tiwary hitting some crispy boundaries, the KKR fans kept on cheering. But their joy was short lived as Harbhajan brought an end to his dazzling innings with a superb throw. Sanjay Kapoor and SRK wore long faces as Tiwary made his long walk back.
