The Chennai Express duo were in high spirits at the Eden Gardens last night

Deepika Padukone, who performed at the opening ceremony of the Indian Premier League 2013, stayed back in Kolkata to watch the Kolkata Knight Riders versus Delhi Daredevils match – the first game of IPL 6. Despite being a Royal Challengers Bangalore loyalist, the actor cheered for KKR along with her friend and co-star Shahrukh Khan.

Shahrukh was super excited as his team – champions of the last season – continued their good run and beat their rivals quite comprehensively. SRK kept climbing the railing, while his concerned children, Suhana and Aryan kept holding him. “Inko kisliye khilya, pilaya, badha kiya hai!” joked SRK.

And after KKR hit the winning runs, SRK and Deepika, along with the kids did a victory lap as the stadium erupted in excitement. Deepika, who was wearing cowboy boots, even mock-rode a horse. We like! Dips has always attended the IPL matches and we are sure we will get to see a lot more of this hot babe this season. Yes, we’ll see a lot more of Shahrukh too, of course!
