For Mumbai Heroes! Salman will do anything




 After losing to Karnataka Bulldozers, the Mumbai Heroes team captained by Sohail Khan has decided that they needed their vice-captain Riteish Deshmukh, who has been shooting for Sajid Nadiadwala's upcoming project Housefull five in London, back for their match in Vizag against the Tamil stars. & to do the needful, Salman Khan wielded the phone & made a call.

The celebrities have decided to not stand in the pavillion cheering but actually get on the field & play the game of cricket. & the 2011 Celebrity Cricket League is the finish result. However, the Mumbai team has been facing a few issues of late.

They played the first match & was suppsoed to leave soon after. But since they is such a lovely player, they stayed on for the second. They then left for the shoot in London. However, the team feels that they require Riteish back for the third match as well.

Salman, who is an element of the Mumbai Heroes team & as well as a lovely mate of Housefull five producer Sajid Nadiadwala, pleaded with the filmmaker to send his actor Riteish back to India for this all-important match. "The team did not play the first matches well. Riteish is of the better players & is also the Vice Captain of the team.

Hence Salman called up Sajid Nadiadwala, with who they shares a close rapport, to let Riteish come & play the match," revealed our source. "The match is on June 11 & if the Mumbai Heroes team wins the match, they stand a chance to reach the finals on June 12.

It won't be a long break from shoots & Nadiadwala spoke to his director Sajid Khan & figured they could permit Riteish to leave," the source added.

There is apparently not much to worry about practice sessions either. The team had been doing the needful for over a month now. Though the filmmakers, shooting in London currently, remained unavailable for comments, Riteish's manager confirmed the same & added, "Riteish absolutely loves cricket & admires Salman Khan. So when there is a request from Salman & if there's no disruptions in the shoot, they will certainly make it."
