As far as the close buddies Juhi and SRK are concerned, the collaboration does not end with owning KKR and that of Dreamz Unlimited: a production house jointly owned by Shahrukh, Juhi Chawla and the producer Aziz Mirza. The friendship between the two has taken on another productive dimension with SRK joining hands with Juhi and her better half Jai Mehta to erect a cricket stadium. The proposed stadium will be built in Porbander. Apart from its association with Mahatma Gandhi, Porbandar is also the native place of Jay Mehta.
Consequently, the collaborating partners decided on it. The stadium to take after the name of Jay Mehta’s grandfather as Nanji Kalidas stadium will be centered on the existing Duleep cricket ground.
Regarding the construction of the proposed structure SRK in collaboration with the Mehtas have struck a deal with the local cricket association. In the initial phases of construction, batting pitches will be put to shape followed by those of stands and players’ dressing rooms. The expertise of a U.K based company will be taken into account for the construction of outfield and stands. The total expense is estimated at Rs. twelve crore.(Agencies)
