Hrithik Roshan, Aamir Khan and others cheer Sachin at Wankhede
Seems like, the only event Bollywood celebs want to be present today at is Sachin’s 200th test match at Wankhede. Day 1saw Aamir Khan, Ashutosh Gowarikar and others but looks like on Day 2 the number has increased. Among others, Hrithik Roshan, Kiran Rao and Rahul Gandhi have also made it to the stadium.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi interrupted electioneering duties to fly in from New Delhi. He watched the match accompanied by Prithviraj Chavan, chief minister of Maharashtra.
Actor Aamir Khan with his wife Kiran Rao and his Lagaan director Ashutosh Gowariker returned for Day 2. They were in the stands on Day 1 as well, with Aamir delaying an official Dhoom 3 event so he could watch Sachin bat.
Also watching the match was Krrish 3 star Hrithik Roshan, and Sachin’s wife Anjali Tendulkar with their son Arjun and Kunal Kohli.
Aamir arrived wearing the same blue T-shirt and jeans he was in on Day 1. However, if the outfit was meant to be a lucky charm, it didn’t help. Sachin was dismissed for 74 about an hour into play.
Aamir said,”Main 100 nahi, 135 soch ke aaya tha, taaki 16,000 poore ho jaayein.”
But no worries that could happen in the second innings Aamir!
Hrithik said, “Sachin is the superhero of the human spirit.” On being asked who does he seen playing Sachin if ever a film was made on him, he said, “I’d love to play Sachin. It would be an honour for me”.
