Bollywood has gotten into the IPL action in a big way. Cricket + entertainment are the formula for Twenty20.
Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla are friends and business partners. So it came as no surprise that they invested in a franchise. Their choice of city though is a surprise. Kolkata is really not their turf.
