New Delhi: Not only cricket fans but even movie buffs will stick to their television sets tonight to watch the grand finale of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 7.

The cash-rich league`s final can certainly not get bigger than this. For a simple reason that it is not just a cricket match between KKR and Kings XI but a contest between `Veer` and `Zaara`.

For those who have still not nailed it, this time apart from being a match between Shah Rukh Khan`s Kolkata Knight Riders and Preity Zinta`s Kings XI Punjab, the contest is also trending on social networking sites as `Veer vs Zaara`. SRK and Preity Zinta, the owners of the two teams, mesmerised the people with their beautiful chemistry in 2004 Yash Chopra film `Veer-Zaara`.

Now that the two actors, are all set to battle it out in the cricket field, how can the Twitteratis stay behind? The Veer vs Zaara hashtag is already trending on the micro-blogging website and almost everyone is using it while talking about the final IPL 7 match.

Here are a few tweets just to show how the 'Veer vs Zaara' hashtag is trending on micro-blogging site and how it has left behind other hashtags about the IPL finale:

"Badalte Rishtey. #VeerZaara now, will be #VeerVsZaara at eve. #IPLfinale”

"#VeervsZaara this time veer will not sacrifice his life”

“Do pal ki thi ye dilo ki dastan aur phir chal diye tum kaha hum kahaa @ #VeervsZaara”

The viewership of IPL has gone down this year after revelations about spot fixing in the past seasons. However, for movie fans Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta will be the centre of attraction and this will help in boosting the TRP of the grand Bollywood-cum-cricket encounter.

With the Badshah of the silver screen and pretty Priety in the final fight, one can expect a lot of Bollywood dhamaka before, during and after the match. So, if you are a cricket fan or a movie fan, then there should certainly be no reason for you to stay away from your television set tonight!
