'Preity had called last evening for a request - her IPL team was hugely depressed and she was wondering if I could do a small TV bite to cheer them up. I did that and I hope it makes them happy,' Amitabh posted on his blog www.bigb.bigadda.com.
The two actors featured together in films like 'Veer-Zaara', 'Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna' and 'The Last Lear'.
The second season of the IPL is starting April 18 in South Africa.
Commenting on the upcoming Twenty20 series, Amitabh wrote: 'Cricket has become so big and important. And the T20 series, now shifted to South Africa due to security concerns and concerns of its reflection on the elections, is a sheer delight.'
