Clicked: Shahrukh Khan-Preity Zinta hug at Eden Gardens
Cricket rivalries be damned. Shahrukh Khan and Preity Zinta gave professional rivalry a wide berth and hugged each other on the ground of Eden Gardens after the crucial IPL 7 finals qualifier between their teams Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab.
Even though Preity’s team lost the game, paving the way for KKR into the finals of IPL 7, there was much sportiness on display before the euphoric Eden Gardens crowd of 65000.
The high point was when Shahrukh Khan and Preity Zinta approached each other smilingly, hugged and waved to the crowds.
There was no loser, both winners.
SRK also did the victory lap with skipper Gautam Gambhir and other knight riders.
Shahrukh Khan and Preity Zinta have worked together in a number of films including Dil Se, Veer Zaara (their most popular pairing), Kal Ho Na Ho, Kabhi Alvidaa Na Kehna.
Preity’s team Kings XI Punjab has performed excellently in the current edition of Indian Premiere League. They are still not out of the tournament. They play Chennai Super Kings to seal their berth in the finals.
