Sohail Khan invites Shahrukh Bhai to join CCL team
We all know Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan are arch-rivals but still Sohail Khan invited Shahrukh Khan to join any team of Celebrity Cricket League (CCL). Sohail has kept personal issues far apart from professional issue and invited SRK to join CCL team. The CCL has eight teams and Sohail plays for the Mumbai Heroes
"He's (SRK) a part of the industry and he is a very big star. He has his own IPL (Indian Premier League) team and if he would like to come and support CCL or any of the teams, there's going to be games in Kolkata, Pune," said the 42-year-old whose brother Salman and SRK are at loggerheads.
"We all are part of one industry, I still call him Shah Rukh Bhai, things don't change. We all are a part of the industry and we all are friends, he is most welcome. We'll be glad if he supports us," he added.
Meanwhile, actor Riteish Deshmukh who leads his CCL team named Veer Marathi says he will beat his earlier team Mumbai Heroes.
"When we play a cricket match, we will try our best to beat the opposite team and after winning we will give them a nice hug," Riteish said here.
Sohail added that Salman will not play for his team due to health issue. "Salman
is an icon now so I can't take risk with him now. He has gone through a major
surgery last year, so we have to be careful. He could not play the last two
seasons because of his illness", informs Sohail.
However Sohail says that Salman will be there to cheer the team as and when he can. "We will visit all the venues and be a part and support our team wherever they are playing", he adds.
Despite being the owner of Mumbai Heroes, Sohail too will not be seen on the field, "I was out in the first ball so I was removed from the team", he adds jovially.
Bipasha Basu has been roped in as the brand ambassador of CCL.
