The six cheerleaders for Knight Rider's team in IPL selected through Knight and Angels produced by Red Chillies Idiot Box are on cloud nine. The Cheer leader's girls -- Ananya Bera, Sanna Chirawawala, Sunanda Hiroo, Rupali Kantharia, Ritika Chibber and Samyukta Surendar -- are back after a ten day trip. They were taken as the part of the team. They are very happy with the experience as cricket is the flavour of the season. This experience was a life time experience for them.
They got an opportunity to perform during the cricket carnival road show at least; they drove around in Cape Town in an open bus with the players and owners of Kolkata Knight Riders. They cheered to the team's theme song, Korbo Lorbo Jitbo re. The girls are quite happy as they watched the matches from the VIP box, along with SRK and his family. They watched three matches and KKR was playing in two of those. They accompanied the team to the dinner party and interacted with most of the KKR players. The girls got to go sightseeing and do some shopping in South Africa as well. The girls also accompanied the team to the after-match dinner party and interacted with most of the KKR players.
Says Ritika, ''We were so excited to get an opportunity to go to South Africa. There were the players and there was Mr. SRK!''. ''We were put up in apartments just opposite the hotel where Shah Rukh stayed,'' adds Sunanda who has shifted base to Mumbai from Kolkata to seek a career in entertainment. Adds Ananya who is a Class 12 student, ''This trip made us forget all the despair we had. Shah Rukh has told us that we will be the cheerleaders for KR when the IPL will be held next year in India.
Red Chillies Idiot Box creative head non-fiction Pranjal Khandhdiya says, ''The six winners of Knight and Angels had a great experience in South Africa and they are looking forward to the next season to witness the action live with SRK.''
