Actress Kangana Ranaut has agreed to be the face of Sohail Khan's celebrity cricket team this year after a special request made by actor and friend Salman Khan. According to reports, Salman considers Kangana his lucky charm and he wanted Kangana to be there for all the matches.
The actress will be present for most of the matches the team plays and is taking time out, especially for her friend.
"Though the first season last year wasn't good, the team managed to win the matches for which Kangana was present at the stadium. Salman has requested her to continue being the team's face and attend as many matches as possible to bring luck to the team," said a source.
And reports are that despite having a tight timetable, Kangana has agreed to give in to Salman's request. The Tanu Weds Manu actress remained unavailable for comment.
Sohail's team also gets five fresh faces this season. The team captained by Suniel Shetty will include Aditya Roy Kapoor, Yash Tonk, Indraneil Sengupta, Samir Kochhar and Rajneesh Gupta as the new players.
However, it still remains to be seen who will be replacing Riteish Deshmukh as the vice-captain of the team.
"Anna (Suniel) and all the other players are working very hard on their practice and fitness sessions and they hope to do better this time," said a source.
