Kolkata:

Bollywood actors Akshay Kumar, Imran Khan and Sonakshi Sinha were among the thousands of cricket-crazy fans that thronged the Eden Gardens here on Wednesday to watch the first match of the IPL-VI.

Clad smartly in white tees with 'Once Upon a Time in IPL' inscribed, they were seen promoting their upcoming film 'Once Upon a Time in Mumbai' during the Kolkata Knight Riders vs Delhi Daredevils tie.

"We have just came here because its the beginning...the first day of the IPL. This is a different experience altogether, you will never get it watching a match anywhere," said Akshay.

Praising the passion of Kolkatans when it comes to sports, he said some of his Australian cricketer friends have also told him that they have never experienced something like this anywhere in the world.

Imran, whose last release was 'Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola' said, "This is the my first time at Eden. I have heard that the crowd here is deafening".

When asked which team is he supporting Akshay said, "The teams playing in IPL are Indians. And whenever there is a match, I always say that may the best team win".

Imran and Sonakshi, however, said they want their home city team Mumbai Indians to win the IPL this time.
