Preity Zinta: From Bollywood to the pitch – Preity Zinta has been ruling not just the silver screen but also the cricket field as she co-owns Punjab Kings (formerly known as Kings XI Punjab) since the very first season of IPL in 2008.

The Indian Premier League is the most entertaining sporting event in the world because it brings together the two most popular industries in India, cricket and Bollywood. Many of the IPL franchises are owned by Bollywood superstars who are known to have fun with the team while away from the field.

One of the most popular IPL holders is actress Preity Zinta, owner of Punjab Kings (formerly Kings XI Punjab). Recently, the actor announced the incident when IPL had to make 120 aloo paratha for his team as per his promise during the 2009 season.

Preity Zinta Said:

“For the first time I know how much the boys eat, we live in South Africa and the parathas don’t work well. Then I said to them, ‘I’m going to teach them how to make all the parathas.’ The boys asked if I could make all the parathas for them. I told them if they win the next competition they will make aloo paratha. They won. Then I made 120 aloo paratha. After that, I stopped making aloo parathas,” Zinta joked on Star Sports.

Their best performance came in 2014, when they finished the tournament and lost to the Kolkata Knights in the final.
