Salman Khan took us down the memory lane, when he shared the video of legendary actors Raj Kapoor, Dilip Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor, IS Johar, Johnny Walker playing cricket in a star studded friendly match. The video is uploaded on his recently released app called BeingInTouch. The video has IS Johar batting while Shashi Kapoor can be seen fielding. Dilip Kumar is also seen getting ready to bat, so is Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor. Actresses like Saira Banu and Shobha Khote can be seen playing as well as watching the match. The audiences are having a field day as they are cheering for their stars from the stands in a jam packed stadium. This used to be an event of sorts for all fans as stars used to be exclusive and it was a huge deal to catch them live. The friendly match was played between Team Raj Kapoor and Team Dilip Kumar. The match was organised by Maharaja of Patiala way back in 1956. Salman Khan being a sports fanatic shared this video and this also acted as a promotion of his app. Also read: Salman Khan black buck poaching case: Jodhpur High Court will deliver the verdict on 18th January 2017

In the day and age of social media, movie stars playing friendly matches is not a new thing. Salman Khan himself owns a team in Celebrity Cricket League where actors like Suniel Shetty, Sohail Khan, Bobby Deol etc play matches. In fact, Abhishek Bachchan along with Ranbir Kapoor are instrumental in promoting football and they keep organising football matches where one can find even Virat Kohli running along the likes of Aditya Roy Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor.
