Amitabh Bachchan is a sports lover at heart. Every time India wins at the world stage, Big B is there cheering them on, either in person or on social media. And that’s what happened even yesterday (October 22) when India beat arch-rivals Iran to defend Kabaddi World Cup title. In 2007, India had won the same title.

Big B could not hold himself back and tweeted pictures expressing his joy and congratulating the team for bringing the World Cup home. In one of his tweets, he wrote, “sadiyon pehle jo hamara ‘mor takht’ le gaye the, aisa laga aaj wapas mil gaya BHARAT ko .. INDIA WINS THRONE !!”

Bachchan family has been an active participant in the sports of Kabaddi. In fact, Abhishek Bachchan is the owner of Kabaddi Premier League’s Jaipur team. Amitabh Bachchan has also been the voice of KPL’s promotional song for several seasons. But it wasn’t just Amitabh who celebrated the win of India team over Iran in Kabbadi World Cup, even celebrities like Shah Rukh Khan, Paresh Rawal, Randeep Hooda and Madhur Bhandarkar also took their Twitter handles to congratulate the Indian team.
