Mumbai: This is what we called the perfect frame! Sunil Gavaskar with Amitabh Bachchan and Sachin Tendulkar-that’s a frame every Indian would love to savor. During the match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians, the Indian ace actor Amitabh Bachchan paid a surprise visit at the Wankhede Stadium.
Standing by the sidelines, the Big B was interviewed by the Indian legendary cricketer and commentator, Sunil Gavaskar. The fantastic duo was then joined by the one and only Sachin Tendulkar.
When asked about his loyalties, the Big B seemed torn between his home city, Mumbai and the city of his in-laws, Kolkata.
“I am Kolkata’s jamaibabu”, he said, ” but my heart is with Mumbai because that’s where I belong to.”
Sunil Gavaskar, who has faced Amitabh Bachchan’s bowling in charity matches before, termed him as a decent left-arm pacer. Sachin Tendulkar was surprised to hear about it and said that he would have loved to face the Indian actor in his prime.
Amitabh Bachchan, though, being his modest self said that he could always help out the broadcasters with some ‘bad’ commentary.
Incidentally, Amitabh Bachchan is a massive cricket fan and has done commentary for the India-Pakistan clash in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.
