Lights, camera, action! The spotlight shifts to Kolkata. After playing six away games, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are back home, at Eden Gardens, for another important Indian Premier League (IPL) encounter, this time against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP).

It may be a cliché, but we cannot help using it. Whenever KKR has played KXIP, it has been dubbed as Veer vs Zara contest. While Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan co-owns KKR, the Punjab side is co-owned by the charming Preity Zinta.

The big news is Shah Rukh will present in the Kolkata stands, cheering for his side. He is frequent to KKR matches but this season he hasn’t attended a single match and today will be his first. Understandably, his film, Fan, released last month and he has been very busy with its promotion. The King Khan announced his arrival on Twitter.

One of his fans posted a video of him and his younger son AbRam dancing during one of IPL matches of previous edition.

Moments after the toss, Shah Rukh tweeted on the sacrifices he makes for KKR.

It is going to be a star-studded affair at Eden Gardens. There will be Shah Rukh, Preity and the players battling it out in the middle, and not to forget, Sourav Ganguly, the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) President and KKR’s first captain, who too is expected to be around.
