Abhishek Bachchan’s Pro Kabaddi League team win for bench strength!
Abhishek Bachchan’s Pro Kabaddi League team lost their first game on opening night, but that’s because all the ‘heavyweights’ were in the audience! On July 26, legends and icons of industry lined up to cheer for AB Jr’s Jaipur Pink Panthers, as they took on U Mumba at the National Sports Club of India in Mumbai. From dad Amitabh Bachchan to master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, the front rows were packed with dazzling stars. Sachin and wife Anjali showed their solidarity by wearing shades of pink, while megastars Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan took things a step further by sporting Jaipur Pink Panthers’ team jerseys. We were supremely impressed by Bachchan ‘bahu’ Aishwarya, who not only wore a team tee, but also cheered animatedly ringside. We honestly cannot remember the last time this otherwise composed actress has let her hair down like this, despite the presence of the media!
Attracting flashbulbs, Anand Mahindra and Tina Ambani applauded alongside Jaya Bachchan. Mandira Bedi made her mark a few rows behind, in trademark noodle-straps. Kabir Bedi and Parveen Dusanj, filmmaker Farah Khan and Sachin’s gorgeous daughter Sara Tendulkar were among the others spotted in the audience. No wonder Bachchan Senior later tweeted: “Pro Kabaddi today started... Jaipur Pink Panthers v U Mumba... we LOST!! No sweat! Great atmosphere and great turnout…”
