IPL 2017 will see a Juhi Chawla vs. Preity Zinta cricket face-off of a different kind

Juhi Chawla, Preity Zinta

Juhi Chawla and Preity Zinta will be facing each other off in a new way thanks to the Indian Premier League 2017 (IPL 2017).

The two celebrities will be doing commentary for a match to be held on May 9. This is great considering that they haven’t shared screen space so far and while they will or not in the future isn’t a certainty, one thing is for sure that the duo is about to face each other on the cricket field.

The two would be doing commentary for the upcoming IPL match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab. Interestingly, Juhi co-owns KKR and Preity is the owner of Punjab’s team. So, it would be quite exciting to see their face-off in the commentary box, as their teams battle it out on the ground.

Preity has already done a commentary role in Salaam Namaste; however, Juhi has never tried her hands on any form of commentary, nor has she done any role in her career which required her to show her speaking prowess on the mic. So, one can say it is a kind of a debut for her in this field.

Juhi, who has been co-owning the team along with Shah Rukh Khan ever since its conception, took to Twitter and wrote, “I am all set for it. And yes, let’s see who wins on the 9th.. Stay tuned for.”

The bundle of energy, Preity, would be meeting sober and charming Juhi, and their combination is for sure adding to the excitement regarding the match. Juhi and Preity have been good friends of Shah Rukh since forever. The two also guest appeared in Om Shanti Om’s title track but did not feature in any film together. Both have ruled the industries in their respective times, and now are one of the most inspiring business women from the film industry.
