Film fraternity is an integral part of the very famous cash-rich IPL and many celebrities from the cinema world are associated with it and follow it closely too. The last match, qualifier, between Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad was a thrilling one which was won by men in Orange jerseys, courtesy an all-round performance by one man – Rashid Khan. The Afghani player has been delivering throughout the season and threw a special performance with bat first, then with his bowling and then with his fielding efforts. And supporters of the men in Orange were an elated group after their favourite team, SRH, cruised through to the final of IPL. But what was more delightful to see was the Twitter conversation between Rashid Khan and Telugu superstar Mahesh Babu post the match.
Mahesh Babu tweeted lauding Rashid Khan’s performance in the match and wrote – “Take a bow @rashidkhan_19… Whatta match by @SunRisers Can’t wait for Sunday!!! Congratulations to the whole team.” And Rashid Khan replied to this which made fans of the superstar rejoice out of happiness. “Thank you bro watching your movies keenly” replied Rashid Khan which fans hailed as a sweet gesture from the cricketer. This conversation is being loved by many fans of superstar since Mahesh is very rarely found to be talking about things other than films. SRH will now lock horns with CSK in the final of IPL 2018 on Sunday, May 27th, 2018 in Mumbai.
