5 celebrities who watched India vs Pakistan battle live
Vijay Deverakonda has garnered a lot of attention lately due to his latest release Liger. The movie is being called South actor’s Bollywood debut with Ananya Pandya as the heroine and Dharma Productions as one of the producers. On Sunday, the Arjun Reddy star again made headlines.
He was present in the stadium during the clash wearing an Indian outfit. The cameras showcased Vijay cheering for India more often than not, and he soon became viral on social media.
The alleged tiff between Rishabh Pant and Urvashi Rautela is not unknown to anybody in the cricket fraternity. Recently, Rautela had taken a dig on Pant, saying that a certain RP waited for ten hours to meet her. To this, the Delhi-based cricketer posted a story about how people should not spread rumors for some fame.
Rautela once again managed to grab the attention as she cheered for team India in Dubai. The Bollywood actress also became meme material as India dropped Rishabh Pant from the playing XI against Pakistan to make way for Dinesh Karthik as the main wicketkeeper.
Another person who came into the limelight during India vs Pakistan fixture was BCCI secretary Jay Shah. The official has been facing a lot of flak due to one of his viral videos from the game. In the short clip, Shah can be seen refusing to hold the national flag. His actions hurt the sentiments of a lot of fans.
However, Jay Shah wasn’t wrong in not taking the Indian into his hands. Apart from being associated with BCCI, Shah is also the president of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC). Holding the tri-color during one of the Asia Cup 2022 games would have caused a conflict of interest.
Indian all-rounder Irfan Pathan was also spotted in the stadium during India vs Pakistan clash. The veteran forms a part of the official broadcast team for the major T20 extravaganza. Just before the blockbuster encounter, Pathan was seen sharing a warm hug with the former Indian skipper Virat Kohli.
The all-rounder also had a good chat with South actor Vijay before the game. Notably, the 37-year-old is in line to make his acting debut this month with the Tamil thriller, Cobra.
Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan
Last not but least, Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan was also one of the notable personalities watching the high-octane clash. Along with being the Minister of Tolerance and Coexistence, he is also the chairman of the Emirates Cricket Board. Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan enjoyed the game while sitting alongside Jay Shah.
