The Happy New Year duo congratulated the ace badminton star, who stormed into the final of the prestigious tournament
Bollywood and sports have always went hand in hand. Other than Virat Kohli-Anushka Shama's love affair, there have been numerous occasions like Shah Rukh and Preity Zinta buying IPL teams or Ranbir buying an ISL football team, which indicate that our Bollywood celebs are attracted to sports.
When Saina Nehwal stormed into the final of All England Badminton last night, few of our B-town celebs came forward to support the ace badminton star. Deepika Padukone, who plays badminton herself, was one of the first people to congratulate Saina, as she tweeted," All the best @NSaina !!! #AllEnglandChampionships #finals @OGQ_India". It is interesting to note that Deepika's father, Prakash Padukone, was the first Indian to win the prestigious title back in 1980.
Shah Rukh Khan sounded cheerful and confident about Saina's success as he tweeted,"@NSaina you go girl. So so proud of everything you do. We are all cheering you. Love and happiness to you."
So when Saina enters the badminton court to play the final, she is sure to have SRK and Deepika rooting for her, along with millions of Indians praying for her victory.
