Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan, Shilpa Shetty and Preity Zinta will zero-in on the IPL fans to pick up a South African beauty as the newest Indian movie actress during the five week Twenty-20 series in Durban.

The Indian Premier League has announced a Bollywood movie role to one South African girl to be picked up among the audience during the matches.

IPL chairman, Lalit Modi today announced in Cape Town that a South African fan stands to win a role in a Bollywood in the IPL's 2009 Miss Bollywood SA competition.

Bollywood stars, Shah Rukh Khan, Shilpa Shetty and Preity Zinta were present during the the announcement.

"The heart of our idea is to search the crowd at IPL matches for someone who has the attitude and appearance that automatically draws the eye. It will be the kind of person who is not necessarily showing off for the camera, but who can mesmerise even total strangers," Shah Rukh said.

Modi said the lucky female IPL supporter will also stand to win Rs 250 000, a business class trip to India and other prizes if she wins the beauty competitition.

"We're looking for someone who has the star quality to stand out in a crowd, probably without even trying that hard. It's that special, almost indefinable, quality that makes someone a star more than a beauty queen that we are looking for," said Modi.
