Their friends and supporters are flowing in blessings and wishes to see their favourite candidate bag the title of the 12th edition of one of the most popular television reality shows in India. Among Sreesanth’s supporters is Pooja Bhatt – the actor-turned-director of Bollywood who recently cast the former cricketer in her upcoming film ‘Cabaret’ said she wanted to see her close friend bag the title.
