Sohail Khan, who is a proud owner of his CCL (celebrity Cricket League) team ‘Mumbai Heroes’, was asked recently, if he would ever invite or want Shahrukh to be a part of his team. While Salman being the brand ambassador of Mumbai Heroes, there were expectations that he would refuse to reply to the question.

However Sohail sportingly replied, ”He is a part of the industry and has his own IPL team, if he wants to support any of the teams he is welcome. We are a part of the industry and I call him Shahrukh bhai and he is a friend. If Shah Rukh has the time and the inclination then why not,” says Sohail.

The actor turned sportsman says, ” We are all Indians and we have languages divided in the industry. Here we have an opportunity to be under one roof- actors, producers and directors from all over coming on a single platform. We couldn’t do films together but at least we are playing cricket. At the end of the day we are playing a serious sport. It’s a dream for us. We forget acting on the field and start behaving like Sachin Tendulkar or Rahul Dravid on the field. Don’t compare us to international cricketers but we are trying our best.”
