Bachchan’s debut as a Cricket Commentator
The actor told reporters that he was excited about doing the live cricket commentary and said that he has been taking tips from his fellow commentators about getting the more technical aspects of the game right.
Amitabh Bachchan who is an avid cricket fan, has in the past starred in commercials alongside Indian cricketers and live-tweets match updates when the Indian cricket team plays. “This country’s emotions are ruled by two things — cricket and cinema. For me, it’s an exciting time on both fronts. My movie is releasing on February 6 and then, I have the privilege of making my commentary debut,” he said.
“Shamitabh”, Bachchan’s latest film will be released on February 6th. He is doing the commentator stint as part of the promotion for his new movie. Let’s hope that he loves doing it so much that he will come back and try his hand at being a cricket commentator more often in the future.
