The Dabangg actor, along with Akshay Kumar and Imran Khan, was ignored at the IPL opening match this year, where the spotlight was on SRK and his team Kolkata Knight Riders. At the Mumbai match two days ago, things were different…

The first time Sonakshi Sinha made an appearance in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2013 match was at Eden Gardens, Kolkata for the opening clash between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Delhi Daredevils (DD). The actor was there to support DD along with her Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai Again co-stars Akshay Kumar and Imran Khan.

It was rumoured that Shahrukh Khan, who was present at the venue to cheer his team KKR, ensured that the spotlight never turned towards the Once Upon… stars. And so Sona, Immy and Akki missed their spot in the sun, and had to be content with simply sharing their picturess on social networking sites.

But the tables turned on SRK on May 7 when he couldn’t enter the Wankhede stadium for the KKR and Mumbai Indians (MI) match because of the five-year ban on him. Sonakshi meanwhile was happily cheering for her home team and also got her two minutes of fame. Check out the Dabangg babe’s pictures to see how pleased she looked, especially since Mumbai won the game! Now can we see SRK sulking somewhere?
