King Khan has done it again. SRK was seen attentively answering the questions at the press conference prior to the opening match at the Cricket Club of India at Churchgate, Mumbai. The PC was organised by NDTV India.
A grand opening ceremony officially marked the start of the Toyota University Cricket Championship (TUCC), setting the stage for 16 days of a high-voltage cricketing contest.
Guests of Honour, Shah Rukh Khan and Rahul Dravid assured their full support towards encouragement of sports in India.
Drama, dance performances, drummers and fireworks lit up the sky as the 8 captains were introduced to the country by Shah Rukh Khan and Rahul Dravid.
Also enthralling the crowd with performances during the evening were, Shankar and Ehsaan who also belted out the catchy finger snapping TUCC theme song ‘Ab Hamari Baari Hai’ composed by the trio and penned by famous lyricist Prasoon Joshi, which was launched earlier this month by renowned international cricketer Wasim Akram.
It was quite evident that most of the fans at the stadium were present to see SRK in person. It is definitely a fine gesture by the King Khan of Bollywood to provide some time to promote fresh talent.
