Bollywood comes to a halt to watch India versus Pakistan semi-final
Aamir, Shahrukh, Preity, Akshay make their respective plans to watch the cliff hanger of a contest
India plays Pakistani in Mohali in the second semi-final match of the Cricket World Cup on Wednesday and the celebs in Bollywood are keeping away from work to watch the arch rivals clash on cricket field.
Shahrukh Khan has already announced a big get-together at his residence Mannat where he, along with close friends, will watch the match on a specially installed big screen. Aamir Khan too had similar plans initially, but now he has managed to get tickets to the match in Mohali and will be cheering the team from the stands along with wife Kiran Rao.
We hear Preity Zinta has managed to get a couple of tickets for herself and friends. Last heard, Abhishek Bachchan said he was trying to get the tickets for the match. Others who are expected to watch the match from the stadium include Sunil Shetty (an avid cricket fan), Rahul Bose and Mika Singh.
Akshay Kumar and Bobby Deol are likely to watch the match with the cast and crew of their coming film Thank You.
John Abraham and Deepika Padukone are shooting for their film Desi Boyz in London and they will watch the match on TV from there.
Among those who’ll be working on Wednesday include Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor (shooting for Short Term Shaadi) and Shahid Kapoor (shooting for Mausam). But dish antennas are being installed on the sets and in the vanity vans so that the stars can catch the match in between their shots.
