IPL 2018: Amitabh Bachchan Comes Up With Brilliant Reply After Being Asked About His Favourite IPL Team
Bollywood megastar, Amitabh Bachchan’s affinity for cricket is well known.
The veteran actor rarely misses a game, and his Twitter feed is proof of that. From backing the Indian players, praising them to defending them, Mr Bachchan makes sure he remains connected with the game.
During the 2015 World Cup, he had commentated for a while when India was fighting it out against Pakistan.
He is spotted in the stands now and then. With so much cricket in him, how can one expect him not to hit the headlines when the Indian Premier League is going on.
Amitabh Bachchan was recently joined by none other than legendary cricketer Kapil Dev at a chat show.
During the show, the two eminent personalities discussed several topics ranging from cricket to Bollywood. The celebrated actor talked about his journey in the Hindi film industry.
On the other hand, the World Cup-winning skipper shared some interesting anecdotes about his school and college life. Amidst all this, a topic came up about the actor’s favourite IPL team.
However, Mr Bachchan played the question with a straight bat. He said that though his roots are in Mumbai, he has a son-in-law of Bengal. He added that his son Abhishek owned two sports teams, one from Chennai and another from Jaipur, and his daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan hails from Karnataka.
Citing these as the reasons, he said he does not have any favourite team in the IPL.
Meanwhile, the eleventh season of the league is in full swing at the moment. The season will end on May 27.
