Akhtar junior encashed the golden opportunity of promoting his film at a crucial point in the match; Atta boy!
It was Aamir Khan who had first stepped in the commentary box when Sachin Tendulkar was playing his last test match and talked about his then forthcoming release Dhoom:3. This time, its Farhan Akhtar who sat in the commentary box of Asia Cup 2014, India v/s Pakistan match with Kapil Dev and Navjot Singh Sidhu to promote his movie with Vidya Balan, Shaadi Ke Side Effects.
Farhan, in a candid conversation with Kapil and Sidhu talked about the side effects of marriage and even went on to say that how mouthing the words cricket and biwi in the same sentence is not allowed.
Taking the conversation forward, Sidhu asked Farhan as to which Cricket legend would he like to make a movie on. To this our Bhaag Milkha Bhaag superstar commented that he would love to make a movie on Kapil Dev’s story and that he was sure that the Indian audience would love to watch a movie on based on his life.
Now that’s what we call a perfect six! After all, could there be a better opportunity to promote one’s film at the India v/s Pakistan match? Also, we wonder if the directors of our B-town will take Farhan’s suggestion seriously. One thing is for sure, if there’s a movie being made on Kapil Dev, we would be the first ones to go and watch the movie. Are you as excited as we are BollywoodLifers? Do comment and tell us if you would like to watch a biopic on Kapil Dev.
