Forget the red carpet, the real action was happening on the pitch!

Mumbai Indians and the Chennai Super Kings went head-to-head in a nail-biter at the Wankhede stadium on Sunday night.

Even though actors Kareena Kapoor Khan and Neha Dhupia -- both with impeccable cricket connections* -- were there cheering them on, all eyes were glued to the cricketers battling it out.

Their presence did send a wave of excitement in the stands, with fans buzzing over the chance to catch a glimpse of Bebo and Neha cheering alongside them.

*Kareena's late father-in-law is cricket legend Mansur Ali Khan 'Tiger' Pataudi while Neha's late father-in-law Bishan Singh Bedi is the finest left-arm spinner the game has seen.
