Big B goes out of way to cheer Preity Zinta's IPL team

india Updated: Apr 03, 2009 19:21 IST

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 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 .

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 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."
