While it was rumoured that Amitabh Bachchan will be attending the cricket world cup 2011 at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai, turns out that the actor has no plans to do so.
“Many media asking if I have booked tickets for the World Cup final .. not true .. news is false !!” Amitabh announced on the social networking site Twitter.com. We know that the Bachchan family is a big fan of cricket, so much so that Abhishek Bachchan even unveiled the title song of his upcoming film Dum Maaro Dum at the India vs. South Africa match in Nagpur along with co-stars Deepika Padukone, Bipasha Basu, Prateik Babbar and others.
And instead of being intimidated by the cricket world, Bollywood is trying to use India’s favourite sport to its advantage. Shah Rukh Khan recently revealed the teaser of the promo for Ra.One online. Anubhav Sinha, the director or ‘Ra.One’, released the promo online after which he tweeted, “Btw what you saw today is the teaser to the first look. The first look premiers during Aus-Ind qf (quarterfinals) on ESPN Star Cricket tomorrow.”
There’s more than cricket to this world cup!
