Dubai: While India is gripped by Indian Premier League fever, a friendly celebrity cricket match will be staged in Ras Al Khaimah next week with a galaxy of Bollywood stars in attendance.
Come May 27, actors including Sanjay Dutt, Mallika Sherawat, Irrfan Khan, Mohanlal, Bobby Deol and Neha Dhupia will be heading to Iceland Water Park to try their hand at cricket, organisers have announced.
