The perfect stage was set for the arch rivals face-off during the T20 World Cup. The Game between India and Pakistan was finally going to be played at Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
After all the controversies were put to rest, after the telecast of all the funny adverts, after the fans did all the math (which they never even tried in school) and prayers that had never disturbed Gods as much as ever were sent – that the rain Gods decided to delay the proceedings, the final moment had arrived.
Indians were proud of the National Anthem at the start of their game, it was sung by none other than Amitabh Bachchan and the 45,000 Indians at the stadium simultaneously.
Rumors started spreading that Amitabh Bachchan charged 4 crore for singing the Anthem that binds us all.
But it was all rubbish, Former Indian Captain and the President of CAB, Sourav Ganguly made it clear that the Bollywood Icon, the Shahenshah has not taken a single rupee for singing the National Anthem.
Funny fact, after this a case was registered against Amitabh Bachchan for not signing the National Anthem within 52 seconds, as that is the time that is required to sing our National Anthem – supposedly.
