Actress Geeta Basra came to the rescue of her close friend, cricketer Harbhajan Singh, who was a picture of despair when Chennai Super Kings thrashed his team Mumbai Indians at the Indian Premier League 3 final on Sunday night.
She tried her best to pacify him when he was inconsolable.A source said, “Geeta was present in the stands throughout the final match. She was cheering for Mumbai Indians very loudly. She was hopeful till the last over that Mumbai Indians would win the final match. However, when the team could not make it, she put up a brave front for Harbhajan’s sake. She saw a terribly despondent Harbhajan walking to the dressing room. Once there, the player was inconsolable.”
Geeta rushed to offer moral support to him. “Geeta went up to Harbhajan and urged him to take the defeat in the right spirit. However, it took some time for him to gain composure,” added the source.
Geeta confirmed this saying, “All his friends tried to cheer him up. Bhajji plays from the heart. He is okay now.”
She added, “Haar jeet toh laga rahta hai. All said and done, Mumbai Indians was unarguably the best team in IPL 3. Doesn’t the fact that they finished with maximum points say it all?”
