Famous faces at IPL over the years – Sheikh Mohammed, Shah Rukh Khan and more
The Indian Premier League is a huge melting pot of cricket, glamour and money. One of the reasons why the tournament became such a success is because it brought together big names from various industries and put on a spectacle.
While cricket on the field ultimately decides the success and popularity of a tournament, celebrities from outside the sport do help in spreading the game far and wide.
The IPL understood this from start, bringing in Bollywood stars as team owners – like Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta – to attract even more eyeballs.
Thus, there has been a steady stream of famous names at IPL matches every year. They included top Bollywood actors, royalty and more.
