Ardent cricket fan and veteran Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan will be commentating during the much talked about India- Pakistan match in World Cup 2015 on Feb 15, a report published on Cricket Country said.
Cricket fans who anxiously await the most happening cricket event of the year, and who happen to be equally devoted Bollywood fans can now expect a true gala on match day of neighbouring cricket rivals as Bachchan’s voice will now boom in the cricket stadium in Adelaide, Australia.
Bachchan, who is to commentate for Star Sports, as reported by Times of India, is expected to share the mic with the likes of Shoaib Akhtar, Kapil Dev and Harsha Bhogle. His new movie Shamitabh is scheduled to release on Feb 6. Bachchan expressed excitement about this new venture as: “This country’s emotions are ruled by two things — cricket and cinema. For me, it’s an exciting time on both fronts. My movie is releasing on February 6 and then, I have the privilege of making my commentary debut.”
Bachchan who is known to be a devout cricket fan has appeared alongside top Indian cricketers in past commercials. His passion for cricket is evident in his tweets when his home team plays. He also came out on the streets to celebrate India’s victory in World Cup 2011.
