Pune, May 20: Gone was the fury as Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan smilingly watched the IPL match here on Saturday night, with his team Kolkata Knight Riders booking the second spot in the league with a 34-run win over Pune Warriors.
Actors Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha were in attendance not only to watch the match, but also to promote their forthcoming film Rowdy Rathore.
With Mumbai Cricket Association banning him from entering Wankhede Stadium for the next five years, Shahrukh was his normal vibrant self at the Pune stadium.
At the Wankhede stadium fracas, Shahrukh had shouted obscenities at a female fan and at MCA officials, guards et al, after a guard pushed her daughter and other children away from the ground.
An FIR was promptly filed by the MCA, and he was banned from the stadium for five years.
On Saturday night, a mustachioed Akshay, fresh after his super duper hit Housefull 2 bagging Rs 100 crore returns, is gung-ho about his Prabhu Deva-directed Rowdy Rathore, and who else, but Shahrukh, to help him promote his film.
The masala action film has created quite a buzz in Bollywood with its action, dialogues and music.
We are keeping our fingers crossed.
