The Indian Premier League is one of the hottest events going around. Not only does it attract the best cricketers from around the world, but Indian celebrities from all walks of life are regularly spotted enjoying the action in the cash-rich Twenty20 tournament.
The Sunrisers Hyderabad - Mumbai Indians match in Hyderabad on Monday saw a fair share of the elite, including the big stars of the Telugu film industry.
Rana Daggubati, the antagonist in the blockbuster Bahubali: The Beginning, -- the highest grossing movie released last year in India -- was seen cheering for hosts Sunrisers Hyderabad along with his uncle, superstar Venkatesh.

Also among the spectators was Telugu star Allu Sirish, the younger brother of Telugu superstar Allu Arjun and son of renowned Tollywood producer Allu Arvind.
Local fans had a field day as Sunrisers Hyderabad outclassed Mumbai Indians by seven wickets to register their first win in IPL 9, courtesy captain David Warner's scintillating unbeaten knock of 90.
It turned out to be a sad day for Sachin Tendulkar's son Arjun as the defending champions suffered their third defeat in four outings.
Mumbai Indians owner Nita Ambani must be hoping her team bounces back quickly after dropping to a lowly seventh -- second from bottom -- in the IPL standings. Wednesday's match against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai is their best chance.
Shikar Dhawan's wife, Ayesha Mukherjee, also enjoyed the action along with their son Zoravar.
A delighted Kaveri Maran, owner of Sunrisers Hyderabad, cheered all the way as Warner went on the rampage.
Former India batsman V V S Laxman, the Sunrisers' mentor, had much to cheer about after Warner's scintillating knock and the team's first victory in three outings.
