The much anticipated World Cup match between arch rivals, Pakistan and India took place on Sunday with India defeating the boys in green by 89 runs. Cricketing fans were glued to their television screens as India took on Pakistan at Old Trafford in England. While tensions were high and both teams prepared to battle it out against each other, it was Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh who truly stole the show. The star made a surprise appearance at the stadium where he was not only a spectator but also a commentator at the match.
Known for his eccentric sense of style and uber quirky outfits, his choice of clothing for the match turned heads at the stadium and social media went into frenzy. The Gully Boy actor was also spotted interacting with and taking pictures with Harbhajan Singh, Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul, Captain Virat Kohli and other players of the team.
As Pakistan lost the match, fans were devastated and many took to social media to share their dismay and disappointment. Many angry fans blamed the team for their lack of effort and poorly maintained physiques. Emotions took over and some fans were seen crying and in an emotional state.
Ranveer Singh happened to come across one such fan and decided to console him after Pakistan’s loss. A video of the moment surfaces across social media and is proof that Ranveer Singh has a heart made of gold.
The video shows Ranveer Singh walking up to an emotional Pakistani fan and leans in for a hug. “Put it there man,” he said as the fan can be seen placing his head on Ranveer’s chest. Ranveer offers some supportive words to the fan who looks evidently upset over Pakistan’s loss.
“There’s always next time,” he says, to which the fan agrees and says “Yes, there’s next time.”
“Don’t be disheartened! They played well, the boys are committed, dedicated, professionals, and they’ll be back,” Ranveer assures the fan.
The fan is appreciative of the kind words offered by Ranveer and concludes the conversation with “Thank you Ranveer.”
Now this, ladies and gentlemen, is why we are die hard Ranveer Singh fans. The Gully Boy star is currently in England for the shoot of his upcoming film, ’83, which also stars Deepika Padukone as his wife. Ranveer is all set to play the role of legendary cricketer Kapil Dev while DP will essay the role of his wife, Romi Dev.
