The last time that actress Preity Zinta and director Samir Karnik came together was for HEROES, where Preity essayed the role of a brave young Punjabi army widow. What followed was an all round critical acclaim, as well as an average box-office success. And it seems that the young director has found appreciation for his work as Preity has once again hired his services (no, do not jump the gun, she is not venturing into film production!), to bring out a 24-episodic film on her team, Kings XI Punjab.
The one of a kind series will track the players through four cameras in their dressing room and suites. Naturally, being the owner, Preity Zinta will be the star attraction of the series, and already a surprise revelation was made by Samir, and it was that Preity goes to the temple everyday and distributes ‘prasad' to all the players. So, a lot of interesting behind the scenes inside stories will be packed into the 24 episodes.

The team which has its share of cricketing stars like the swashbuckling sixer king, Yuvraaj Singh, the heartthrob of all girls, pace spearhead Brett Lee, and amazingly talented cricketers like Irfan Pathan, the Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakara amongst others.
Definitely, seeing the amazing popularity of its players, this series should prove to be a bigger success than the team's IPL achievement this year!
