Bollywood Superstars Heading towards South Africa

Many Bollywood superstars are now heading towards South Africa where IPL 2009 twenty20 tournament is now going on. Well, three of the eight IPL franchises are owned by Bollywood stars including Shah Rukh Khan, Priety Zinta and Shilpa Shetty. So, naturally Bollywood stars would like to go and visit South Africa to support the teams owned by the fellow actors.

Shah Rukh, Priety and Shilpa are already in South Africa as they all took part in a parade held on the Cape Town streets prior to the tournament. Besides these star owners, it is expected that there will be a number of Bollywood stars in South Africa during the 59-day IPL 2009. Bollywood star Akshay Kumar, who is now in South Africa to shoot for ‘Fear Factor II’ program and is expected that he will be seen in the stadium any day during the tournament. Here, it is notable that Akshay along with Katrina Kaif were seen supporting Bangalore Royal Challengers during IPL 2008. I do not know if Bollywood actress Katrina will also go to South Africa to support her team.

There are some other movie stars who are either brand ambassador or supporters of IPL teams and you could expect that some of them would go to South Africa to support their favorite team during IPL 2009.
