|In an audaciously optimistic move, Salman Khan’s brother Sohail Khan has invited Shahrukh Khan to be a part of Celebrity Cricket League. Not just that, Sohail hopes SRK will support the teams, including Mumbai Heroes whose most prominent face is none other than Salman.
Actor and filmmaker Sohail Khan, who is part of Celebrity Cricket League (CCL), seems to be very professional and says it would be great if superstar Shahrukh Khan ever decides to join it.
The CCL has eight teams and Sohail Khan plays for the Mumbai Heroes.

"He's (SRK) a part of the industry and he is a very big star. He has his own IPL (Indian Premier League) team and if he would like to come and support CCL or any of the teams, there's going to be games in Kolkata, Pune," said the 42-year-old whose brother Salman and SRK are at loggerheads.
"We all are part of one industry, I still call him Shah Rukh Bhai, things don't change. We all are a part of the industry and we all are friends, he is most welcome. We'll be glad if he supports us," he added.
Meanwhile, actor Riteish Deshmukh, who has started his own CCL team named Veer Marathi, says he will strive to beat his earlier team Mumbai Heroes.
"When we play a cricket match, we will try our best to beat the opposite team and after winning we will give them a nice hug," Riteish said here.

Salman is like clay, says Sohail Khan
Filmmaker and actor Sohail Khan believes that his superstar brother Salman's biggest USP is his versatility and flexibility.
"Salman is like clay, you can mould him into anything. Audience never gets tired of watching him because he is somebody who can do romance, action, emotions and everything in one film," the 42-year-old said here Wednesday at the press meet of Celebrity Cricket League.
"He is one actor in whom you will find everything. He is not restricted to one genre of emotions or acting," he added.
Salman's Dabangg 2 hits theatres Friday. The film has been directed by Arbaaz Khan and also stars Sonakshi Sinha.
