New Delhi:

Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, who are the joint owners of Tiigers Of Kolkata at the Indian Street Premier League (ISPL), attended a press conference on the sidelines of the opening ceremony held in Mumbai on Wednesday. A video went viral from the press meet in which Kareena Kapoor can be seen answering the query if she can play cricket. In the video, when a journalist asks Kareena if she can play cricket, Saif Ali Khan promptly replies, “Of course, she’s a Pataudi.” With a big smile on her face, Kareena says, “No, but I try. I am not a great player. I didn’t really hit the ball. But khelne ka aur dekhne ka maja bhi alag alag hota hai (The sheer joys of playing and watching a match are different).” So I am a spectator. I am an audience. Saif can be a player.” Saif and Kareena can be seen wearing the same jersy at the event. Sharing the video, a fan page dedicated to Kareena Kapoor captioned it, “It’s really lovely how Saifu supports her.”

The opening ceremony of Indian Street Premier League was a starry affair. Akshay Kumar, Suriya, Ram Charan, Sachin Tendulkar and Boman Irani danced to the oscar-winning song Naatu Naatu at the opening ceremony. Here’s a video clip in which Kareena and Ram Charan can be seen talking to each other.
