Fans of IPL 2018 were treated to the presence of two of Bollywood’s most adored Superstars – Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor, as they took to the stage for the segment on Kent Cricket Live this Saturday. The duo brought a fresh breath of youthful enthusiasm to the show as they reminisced about their days of cricket fever.
Expressing adoration for their favourite IPL team, the duo enjoyed a game of ‘Kaun Banega 102 not out’ joined by expert commentators Dean Jones and Kris Srikkanth.
Talking about the times spent playing cricket on movie sets during their earlier days, the duo expressed their opinion on IPL teams. Although Amitabh Bachchan has stated in the past that there is inevitably no preference when it comes to IPL in his family, as everyone comes from diverse backgrounds, on further probing “Even though Mumbai Indians are going through a rough patch, I would still want to walk the streets of Mumbai, shouting that I am a Mumbai Indians supporter. I am a die-hard Mumbai Indians Fan. On the other hand, Chennai, Super Kings is playing really well right now. Compared to the other VIVO IPL teams, CSK players have the most experience on the field,” said Amitabh Bachchan when asked about his favourite VIVO IPL team.
Finding common ground with Amitabh, Rishi Kapoor acknowledged his soft spot for the Mumbai Indians team as well by saying, “Mumbai Indians are going through a bit of bad luck at the moment but I am sure they will be able to pull through in the end.”
The segment of Kent Cricket Live was aired on Saturday, and was hosted by Arjun Pandit. The segment featuring Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor, highlighted their upcoming movie ‘102 Not Out’.
