Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan cheered up Preity Zinta's Indian Premier League (IPL) team Kings XI Punjab by giving a short TV bite on her behest.

"Preity had called on Thursday 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.

The two actors featured together in films like “Veer-Zaara”, “Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna” and “The Last Lear”.

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

Commenting on the upcoming Twenty20 series, Amitabh wrote: “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.”
