Preity Zinta and beau Ness Wadia won the Mohali team with a bid of $76 million. There were several other groups who bid and won different teams.Shahrukh Khan was very happy to win the Kolkatta team and said “I have already decided on the entertainment part but we have not decided on the core and content of the team. We want to put together a winning combination, for which I would definitely seek advice of the experts.”
Shahrukh has now already started making plans for his team. SRK has decided to give his Kolkata team a new look with designer uniforms designed by her favorite designer Anahita Shroff. He has also appointed Vishal-Shekhar to compose a song which has a lot of punch and a winner attitude.
