Handpick any Pakistani or Indian, you'd find one thing in common - their love for their respective Indian cricket teams. And former Miss World and Bollywood global icon, Priyanka Chopra Jonas is the same. In a recent interview, the actress shares that she is a huge fan of cricket. And it's not just her! But her entire family is crazy cricket fans! And you won't believe how far the actress went for her love for cricket!
Maybe that why, when the actress tied the knot with American singer Nick Jonas, they decided to play the sport at their wedding festivities.
"My father used to love cricket. So, whenever there was a tournament, we would watch it together. If I used to get up from my seat during the match, and an Indian player hit a six, I was made to keep standing for some time. Cricket was a big thing at my place. My uncle has played Ranji cricket so it's kind of a mad cricket-loving family," she said.
Priyanka also recalled her wedding day when Team Bride and Team Groom played a cricket match.
"My cousins are cricket fans, so during my wedding as well, we played cricket by dividing everyone into Team Bride and Team Groom. Nick is a great baseball player, but the two sports are different, so obviously, Team Bride won the match!'' said Priyanka. The actress also revealed her favourite sportsmen. Priyanka shared the two batsmen she likes the best are Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
The former Miss World also revealed how in this year's Cricket World Cup, her in-laws were cheering for England while Priyanka was cheering for India with her mother.
On the film front, Priyanka will be seen in Shonali Bose's "The Sky Is Pink", which is scheduled to release on October 11.
