Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla to build a cricket stadium

Spicezee Bureau

Mumbai: Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan, chirpy Juhi Chawla and her hubby Jai Mehta are all set to develop a cricket stadium in Porbandar, Gujarat.

Apparently, the troika has zeroed in on Mahatma Gandhi`s birthplace because Jai`s family has roots there.

Interestingly, the owners Kolkata Knight Riders plan to take over the Duleep cricket ground in Porbandar to build a stadium to be named after Jai’s grandfather - Nanji Kalidas Mehta in its place.

Apart from adding strength to Gujarat`s cricket program, it will also provide training camps to KKR.

Talking to a daily, a source said, “The local district cricket association and Mehta Sports Private Limited recently inked a deal to build the Nanji Kalidas Mehta stadium at a cost of almost Rs 10 crore.”

“They have decided on a three-tiered approach. First they plan to make at least 12 pitches, then the dressing rooms and finally the stands. UK-based David Hemstock Associates will develop the outfield and dressing rooms.”
