Cricket and Bollywood are often related in some form or another. But ever since Indian Premier League (IPL) came into the fore, the line between the two disciplines given that cine stars like Shilpa Shetty, Shah Rukh Khan, and Juhi Chawla all became owners of IPL teams as well. This led to many cricketers rubbing shoulders with Bollywood stars and creating strong relationships as well.

One such cricketing star is Jonty Rhodes, the former South African cricketer, often known for his electric fielding and one of the few cricketers who made fielding look lovely and enticing, inspiring a legion of young fans to work on fielding as well, apart from batting and bowling. Rhodes, also has a special relationship with India, as he has lived for an extended period of time in the country due to his IPL commitments and has travelled the whole area on his motorcycle.
