Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan is known for his love for sports. When India lifted the World Cup in 2011, he and his son Abhishek Bachchan were out in their car to celebrate the big occasion.
On November 10, 2014, Amitabh tweeted congratulatory messages to Indian hockey team when they beat Australia the third consecutive time in the 4-match Test series to win it 3-1 at Perth Hockey Stadium.
He wrote on his twitter, “India beat world champions Australia in hockey series tie…India beat Sri Lanka in Cricket series…you bring glory to country.”
The men’s team delivered an amazing performance when they beat Australia 3-1. The team played beautifully and dominated the whole game as suggested by the scoreline.
Amitabh has been a huge fan of sports and continued to support all the teams across all the sports. His contribution to sports has not been much. His son Abhishek owns a team in Pro Kabaddi Leagu and he is the regular visitor to the PKL matches.
