Rohit Sharma and Shah Rukh Khan bonded over ‘Baazigar’ on Twitter

Shah Rukh Khan’s celebration of 25 years of ‘Baazigar’ have taken a cricketing turn: the Bollywood superstar may be able to get Indian cricket star Rohit Sharma to dance with him at the 2019 season of the Indian Premier League!

It began with a simple adulatory message from the Indian vice-captain in response to a tweet from SRK marking 25 years since the release of ‘Baazigar’ on Monday, 12 November.

Rohit called the movie one of his favourites with a tweet reading, “One of my top movies, no questions!!”


King Khan – owner of IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders – reciprocated by offering a dance performance to the legendary ‘Kaali Kaali Aankhen’ from the movie when Rohit’s Mumbai Indians come visiting to the Eden Gardens during the 2019 edition.

Rohit snapped at the opportunity, and will now await a special night out in Kolkata when IPL 2019 commences on 29 March.

What are Rohit’s Eden Gardens memories? He’s hit a century on Test debut, a world record 264 in an ODI, an IPL hundred...AND lifted two of his three IPL titles, in 2013 and 2015, at the iconic venue.

Let the countdown begin...!
