Amitabh cheers for Preity Zinta's IPL team

Amitabh Bachchan Superstar Amitabh Bachchan went out of his way to cheer Preity Zinta's team Kings XI Punjab ahead of the upcoming IPL tournament.

Preity Zinta 's IPL team is not in the best of spirits. Since it has quite a few Sri Lankan players, the team may be feeling a bit demoralized due to the recent terrorist attack on them. Add to it the disappointment of the tournament's venue being shifted to South Africa. However, Preity knows how to boost the team's morale.

"Preity had called last evening for a request - her IPL team was hugely depressed and she was wondering if I could do a small TV bite to cheer them up. I did that and I hope it makes them happy," Amitabh posted on his blog www.bigb.bigadda.com.

Mr. Bachchan is very fond of Preity and she, too, shares an excellent rapport with the Bachchans. Not only has she acted with Big B in films like The Last Lear , Veer Zaara and Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna , she went out of her way to be part of the Bachchan troupe when they went on a world tour last year.




Big B added on his blog that cricket has occupied a greater place in people's lives ever since the Twenty20 craze began.

"Cricket has become so big and important. And the T20 series, now shifted to South Africa due to security concerns and concerns of its reflection on the elections, is a sheer delight," Mr. Bachchan wrote on his blog.

The second season of the IPL begins on April 18 in South Africa.
