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 has started his own CCL team named Veer Marathi, says he will strive to 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,” Ritesh said here.
Sohail says he is going to miss his favourite captain and friend Riteish Deshmukh but on a cheerful note wishes Riteish the best for his team.
Incidentally his team Mumbai Heroes will not have Salman Khan playing for his team. “Salman is an icon now so I can’t take risk with him now. He has gone through a major surgery last year 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.
Salman or no Salman, it’s going to be interesting watching all the stars sweating out on the cricket field.
