The Indian cricket team has a lot to be confident about. Bollywood’s veteran actors as well as the young talent, all seem to be rooting for their national team. We witnessed the jubilant tweets and felicitations from some of the biggest names in Bollywood when last Sunday India downed Pakistan. Well, it seems the cricket fervor does not stop there but extended to South Africa’s clash with India yesterday as well. Reactions from the Indian film indutry’s heavyweights poured in as the match proceeded.
Actor Abhishek Bachchan cheered his team on by screaming for India on Twitter.
COME ON INDIAAAAA!!!! #INDvSA

PK star Aamir Khan also didn’t shy away from heaping praise on his team and took the opportunity to offer his gratitude to the trio of Virat, Shikhar and Ajinkya for putting up commendable performances.
Thank you Virat, Shikhar, Ajinkya!

It’s hard to say whether or not Actress Priyanka Chopra was copying Farhan Akhtar or expressing her own delight with some sloganeering of her own.
Meanwhile!! I sleep saying Jeetega bhai Jeetega!! India Jeetega!! Indiaaaaaaa!!

It seems that Virat Kohli and the boys are being watched every inch of the way along the World Cup. India seems to be going strong by starting the cup with a convincing win over arch-rivals Pakistan and following it up with an emphatic victory over South Africa. The defending champions seem to be going full throttle as they go about beating stellar teams in their quest to retain the trophy.
For the moment, everything seems to be working fine for the Indian team. The batting, the bowling and of course, the fan following!
