Being a Bollywood actor, one needs to remain in shape in order to go through the rigours of working for long hours. Preity Zinta is known for her gorgeous smile and her sparkling dimples, which has fetched her a significant level of popularity with every passing movie. However, her acting skills and her fitness regime also deserves accolades.

The eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is currently taking place and the owner of the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) has been hitting the gym on a regular basis. She has been with the franchise ever since the opening season of the IPL. Recently, Axar Patel, who was initially retained by the franchise posted a picture along with Zinta on Twitter. He wrote

Kings XI Punjab have had an impressive start to their campaign of the IPL. In their opening game, they managed to annihilate Gautam Gambhir’s Delhi Daredevils. The Punjab bowlers restricted the visitors to a below par score courtesy some accurate bowling by Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Co. Thereafter KL Rahul stomped in and thumped the bowlers to all corners of the ground.

Subsequently, he also notched the fastest half-century in the history of the T20 league and KXIP opened their account in the event. The franchise was impressive against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) as well. However, Umesh Yadav and AB de Villiers ensured that Punjab were denied their second victory. The Kings came back strongly against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Their batsmen went on a rampage and posted a humongous target on the board. The score turned out to be a bridge too far for the visitors as the home team edged them by four runs in a cliffhanger in Mohali. Meanwhile, Axar Patel has been a tad erratic in the series having picked up a couple of wickets at an economy of 8.57.
