"Cheering and screaming fans on mobikes, cars, whatever mode of travel, the Indian tricolour waving in their excited hands, horns blowing – the entire city has come alive!! What an atmosphere! Hadn’t seen this in a long time!!" posted Big B in his blog on Wednesday. And now he wants a re-run of the same on Saturday night.
"For most Indians, and I am sure for our neighbours too, the semi-final match was in many respects the final. It always is when our two countries play. Congratulations then to (M.S.) Dhoni’s team and wishing you the very best for the April 2 (final) at the Wankhede Stadium," he added.
The India-Pakistan showdown in Mohali was witnessed by quite a few Bollywood celebrities like Aamir Khan, Kiran Rao, Preity Zinta, Vivek Oberoi and Suneil Shetty. The 68-year-old Bachchan, however, missed the action as he was busy shooting for his film "Bbuddah", but was delighted to see how the people celebrated the win and is now waiting for the same to happen again today.
