Ganguly, SRK exchange pleasantries after `Battle Royale`
Accompanied by his daughter Suhana, the Bollywood star was seen talking to Ganguly near the dressing room after Pune Warriors India lost the prestige match to Kolkata Knight Riders by seven runs.
But little enmity was seen on the ground. "Yes, he had come out to the lobby in front of the dressing room. They exchanged plesantaries," Pune Warriors wicketkeeping coach Deep Dasgupta said at the post-mach media interaction.
Stakes were at an all-time high for Pune Warriors match against the Knight Riders with Ganguly leading the side from the visitors dressing room for the first time at the Eden Gardens.
It was seen as a revenge match for Ganguly who was dumped by the Knight Riders after a bitter association from 2008-10. After being left unsold at the auctions before the start of fourth season, Ganguly was given a fresh lease of life at the Pune Warriors.
But as the fate would have it the homecoming was not so sweet for Ganguly as his team lost by seven runs in a thrilling finish in front of a sellout 65,000 crowd.

It's a traditional sport and is yet to receive its due in a cricket-csrazy nation. Being a sports lover myself, I want to change the perception about the game in India. Despite kabaddi being an Indian game, it comes a long way down the pecking order of sports in our country. I want to promote it and would like to see the fan base of the game increasing tremendously with this tournament," he said.
