The spark ignited as the IPL’s main sponsor, Dream 11, released a new advertisement featuring cricketing stalwarts like Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Sanju Samson, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan and Ravichandran Ashwin engaging in lively fun banter. However, it was the exchange between Preity and Samantha that stole the spotlight.

In the advertisement, Samantha playfully teased Preity, saying, “Match k baad to chinta hi hone wali hai (you will be worried after seeing the match result).” Ever the sport, Preity responded with a witty comeback, “Is joke pe mai kal hasungi (I will laugh at this joke tomorrow, i.e., after the match).”

The banter didn’t end with the advertisement; it spilled over onto social media platforms as well. Samantha, in an Instagram post, humorously ensured that no one’s cheer would overshadow the CSK anthem, Whistle Podu, teasing Preity with the hashtag #TeamSeBadaKuchNahi. Unfazed, Preity fired back with a jest of her own, playfully predicting a win for CSK and lifting the IPL cup, accompanied by an upside-down smiley face.

This exchange between the two popular Indian actresses has added an extra layer of excitement and anticipation for IPL fans, with social media abuzz with reactions and predictions ahead of the highly anticipated tournament.
