Dubai/IBNS: Even as Team India had a bad day at office, several Bollywood stars left no chance to cheer for Virat Kohli's men, who began their T20 World Cup campaign playing arch-rival Pakistan here Sunday.

Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar was seen cheering for India sitting beside Indian cricket board's secretary Jay Shah.

Akshay was also once seen enjoying the Indo-Pak match with Indian cricketer Shikhar Dhawan.

One face which flashed on television screens multiple times when Kohli slammed a six or Rishabh Pant hit a boundary was the one of actress Urvashi Rautela.

Senior Bollywood actress Preity Zinta was spotted with her husband Gene Goodenough in the stands enjoying the match.

While Preity was holding a tri-coloured hand fan, her spouse was wearing a t-shirt with India imprinted on it.

Former Miss World and actress Manushi Chillar shared a picture from Dubai saying, " Down but not out..."

On the cricket field, however, India suffered a massive defeat in the hands of Pakistan, who won the match comprehensively by 10 wickets.
