If you like love stories, you will never want to miss this year's Indian Premier League final. This time, apart from being Bollywood Badshah Shah Rukh Khan's Kolkata Knight Riders versus glam doll Preity Zinta's Kings XI Punjab, the IPL final is also making headlines as the immortalised Veer vs Zaara. What's more? The Veer vs Zaara hashtag is already trending on Twitter and is being used by Twitteratis very frequently along with every IPL talk.

Shah Rukh, whose resurgent Kolkata team will take on Preity's high-flying Punjab in Sunday's final at Bangalore's Chinnaswamy Stadium, became known by his character of Veer soon after he and Zinta starred in an award-winning 2004 Bollywood film called Veer Zaara, featuring the latter as Zaara.
