With the hype surrounding the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, some Bollywood celebrities have weighed in on their views regarding match results and others like Ranveer Singh and Saif Ali Khan have been spotted at the cricket stadiums cheering for team India. In recent news, Sidharth Malhotra has opened up about his cutest memory with his grandmother. According to the ‘Student of the Year’ star, he was an extremely naughty child who was always told off by his granny for making too much noise and disturbing her. He revealed an instance when he was punished by her while playing cricket during his childhood days.
Sidharth was promoting his upcoming film ‘Jabariya Jodi’ on Star Sports Philips Hue Cricket Live this week. Sharing a personal anecdote from his youth, he said, “There was a driveway and garden space in my house, and my cousins lived close-by. We used to play cricket in the afternoons and the garage door was our wicket.” He quipped, “The ball used to keep hitting the door and making loud noises. My poor grandmom used to always get disturbed and was unable to get her afternoon naps. Playing cricket has always been fun.”
Speaking about the intense atmosphere and riveting energy during cricket season, he said, “The energy that is seen when the entire family comes together to watch an India match is found nowhere else.” His ‘Jabariya Jodi’ co-star Parineeti Chopra also expressed her love for the game. “Like any other Indian, I am a cricket watcher. I don’t have too much knowledge on the technicalities of the game, but I love watching India play. There’s no India match in the World Cup that I have missed. When the India-Pakistan match was going on, I called Sidharth for some work but before he said ‘hello’, he asked if I was watching the match or not. He said, ‘Quickly tell me, I can’t miss this’,” she concluded.
