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.

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.
