Shah Rukh Khan
Finally the FIFA World Cup fever came to an end and for the first time ever, Spain lifted the cup. Among the countless spectators from all over the world, many Bollywood celebrities left every single thing to catch the finals at the Johannesburg stadium, South Africa.
The hot list includes SRK, Imran Khan, Dino Morea, Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt. In fact several other Bollywood stars were in queue to attend the finals, but only a few could make it finally.
Anil Kapoor adds, “Some work had come up. It looked like I wouldn't be able to go to Johannesburg, though I had packed and booked seats at the stadium. But, I finally did make it. I am the brand ambassador and this is the biggest sports event.”
Some were lucky to watch the game, but some just sighed due to their over packed schedules. Ranbir Kapoor and Salman Khan were not able to attend the world cup as they were busy shooting for their movies in Delhi and Colombo respectively.
Sanjay Dutt also took time to attend the event and it seems that he is the greatest football fan and enthusiast in Bollywood. He adds, “I wouldn't miss the World Cup for the world. I'm the hugest football fan. I place it above cricket in my scheme of joy. I watched the silliest of games in the Cup. For the finals, I had to be here (in Johannesburg).”
Another Bollywood celebrity who didn’t miss the magic was producer Jackky Bhagnani. He adds, “Man, I've the best view possible! I could never afford these seats, they are among the best in the stadium. An industrialist friend from Russia got me these seats. I can't begin to express my excitement, I feel like an eight-year-old who has got his favorite toy. I and my friends have our t-shirts, caps and flags ready. We're rooting for Spain."
Shah Rukh, Imran were also present at the stadium and rooted for Spain till last and finally they all rejoiced in the wining glory.
