It was an evening when the stalwarts of cinema and cricket met up on stage.
Amitabh Bachchan and Kapil Dev took time out to support their friend Navjot Singh Sidhu, as he launched his website sherryontopp.com at a hotel in Juhu, a western suburb of Mumbai.
Crickter, commentator, politician and a regular on television shows, Sidhu has travelled many paths successfully. His latest offering will be the ultimate online sports and entertainment destination for all his fans.
"People must know the real Sidhu from the fake ones that exist (online)," says Sidhu. "I don't think there is a better way to connect with people, who have showered so much love and affection on me. Omnipresence is not for human beings and in its absence, I will always be connected through my website."
“I have great admiration for this young man," Amitabh said. "I have loved the way he has spoken about various aspects of life. I always wondered how he remembers all these wonderful quotes, hazir jawaab (quick wit). I wish I could use some of these lines in my show Kaun Banega Crorepati.”
