With NBA’s first Indian origin player Sim Bhullar currently in India to promote the game of basketball, it was but natural our Bachchan Jr, a real sports-loving fan, would not miss the opportunity to meet up.
And of course, Abhishek, also known for his quick wit, didn’t miss this opportunity to address Sim, who towers at 7’ 5”, as ‘the little guy’! Congratulating Sim on his achievement, Ab Jr. said that he believes Sim will be the game changer for basketball in India. Abhishek is looking forward to watching Sim play on court side soon. Sim also gifted Abhishek an autographed Sacramento Kings Jersey.
Bachchan Jr’s links with sports have been steadily growing stronger over time. He bought the Pro Kabaddi League franchise team Jaipur Pink Panthers and co-bought the Indian Super League football team Chennaiyin FC. And he’s evidently got quite an eye for these matters – Jaipur Pink Panthers won the first ever championships held in 2014!
