Amitabh Bachchan and Sachin Tendulkar are acknowledged as the most popular personalities in India. Both of them have achieved enormous success in their respective careers and still continue to rule the hearts of every Indian and peple around the globe. On the eve of Mumbai Indians’ (MI) match against defending champions Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Amitabh with newly released movie ‘Piku’ co-star Deepika Padukone graced the Wankhede Stadium.

Sachin has been with MI since the beginning of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and currently renders his services as the mentor. When Amitabh and Sachin were interviewed by Sunil Gavaskar, the Wankhede crowd erupted in joy and thus became a moment to saviour for every Indian.

When asked about his loyalties, the iconic actor found it difficult to choose between his home-town Mumbai and in-laws Kolkata. Eventually Amitabh agreed to go with MI and support his home team.

Basically, Big B is an ardent cricket fan and was earlier seen this year in the commentary box for the high-voltage India-Pakistan clash in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.

In the match, MI clinched the thriller against KKR by five runs and kept their hopes alive for the play-offs.
