Bollywood stars cheer for India at Pakistan match in T20 World Cup
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.
Bollywood actress Mouni Roy had also reached Dubai to cheer for Team India.
In an Instagram post, she said, "INDIA INDIAAAAAAA @bookingcom truly made it easier for us to experience one of the most awaited and cherished cricket matches first-hand. Super excited to watch India’s first match at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup!"
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.
