Bollywood and cricket are the two greatest loves for Indians. And the two have more in common than you think. Don’t believe us? With the ongoing cricket world cup and the lull in Bollywood, we bring you some interesting titbits about stars and what their cricket counterparts have in common based on their sun signs.
Let’s take a look at the emotional and romantic Pisceans:
When Aamir Khan produced Lagaan, a lot of people were either worried or happy because everybody was sure that the film would bomb because of its unusual subject. What they did not know was that Aamir Khan had a dream. Just as a perfect Piscean. But at the same time, Aamir Khan had his feet on ground and got an entertaining and quality film made. Be it doing non-commercial films like Holi and Raakh or going out of his image for Rangeela or Sarfarosh, Aamir has dared to be different.
Pieces is a sign of dreams, emotions and romance. It is said that people who fall under this zodiac sign can destroy themselves if they don’t put their focus in the right place. The next Piscean on our list proves a hero here. Shahid Kapoor – apart his good looks, extraordinary dancing and decent acting skills, he was more famous as Kareena Kapoor’s boyfriend. Their MMS was talk of the town a couple of years ago. While shooting for Jab We Met, Shahid Kapoor broke up with Kareena. People considered it the death knell for Shahid’s career. But Shahid emerged strongly in ‘Jab We Met’ and went on to do good films like Kaminey.
More on Pisces: Mysterious and alluring individuals, most Pisces are extremely talented, but even though they are gifted in many ways, they still manage to spend most of their lives battling “confusing” conditions. Pisces is the sign symbolised by the image of two fish. Their symbol depicts one fish heading upward, the other pulling downward.
Actress Pooja Bhatt can be a good example of this phenomenon. At her peak she did good commercial cinema like Daddy, Sadak and Dil Hain Ki Manta Nahi. But she was never bothered about her stardom and did not maintain her heroine status. Instead, she lost her fan following by publishing body painted pictures of herself a la Demi Moore.
Shahid Afridi, Inzmaam-Ul-Haq, Vivian Richards
If we look at cricket stars we have examples of both sides. Shahid Afridi, who comes across as a hard hitter and a top spinner has still maintained his place in Pakistani team where Inzmaam-Ul-Haq could never justify his natural talent. One name from the ‘80s that is very significant here is that of the great Sir Vivian Richards. He was known for his audacious batting and carefree game. He has been an inspiration to a lot of current cricket stars like Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara.
Pisces has been a really interesting take because of its romantic and colourful side. Let’s move on to some action with Aries in our next article.
