Bollywood close friends and co-actors, Shahrukh Khan and Juhi Chawla, are planning to construct a cricket stadium at Porbandar, Gujarat.
King Khan and gorgeous film actress, Juhi Chawla, have been jointly working on various projects. Their first venture Dream Unlimited, along with their third partner and director Aziz Mirza, is the production house, which has produced the patriotic film, Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, starring Juhi and Shahrukh himself.
When their production house could not create magic, they opted for another mega project by owning a franchise in Indian Premier League (IPL). They own the successful IPL team Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
After the IPL team KKR’s ownership, now the idea of constructing the cricket stadium shows the love and passion of both film stars for cricket.
After that, both the partners decided to go ahead with the project. They have decided to name the stadium as the Nanji Kalidas Stadium.
Shahrukh Khan has signed a deal with the local construction company along with the Mehtas. Firstly, batting pitches will be prepared and then stands and players’ dressing rooms will be built. Shahrukh Khan has hired expertise from United Kingdom to design and construct the outfield and public stands.
Although there were tiffs between the two Indian film actors and they have not worked together in films since a very long time. However they decided to bond again, as they are very successful when comes to business.
Kolkata Knight Riders commonly known as KKR is one of the ten teams of Indian Premier League. The celebrity owners bought this team for USD75.09 million, in 2008.
KKR’s official theme is in Bengali language and it goes like ‘ Korbo, Lorbo, Jeetbo Re' which means ‘for We will do it, Fight for it, Win it.’
Besides their defeats in the previous seasons of IPL, it is still rate as one of the most popular teams in IPL. One of the main reasons of its popularity is the people who own it. People around the globe are crazy for their beloved King Khan.
KKR has performed in all the previous three seasons. In their current fourth season, KKR lost the opening match against the Chennai Super Kings. However, they are looking forward to perform well in the future matches of the league.
