Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and young actress Zaira Wasim arrived at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium to witness the decider of the India vs Australia 3-match T20I series. Ahead of the final game, Aamir had a chit-chat session with commentator Jatin Sapru and former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag on the field. They talked about Aamir’s forthcoming film ‘The Secret Superstar’ and about the Indian players, their styles and predicted the match’s results. Shockingly, during that chat session, it was revealed that he doesn’t know the name of the captain of the Indian women’s cricket team. It was quite ironic as Aamir’s blockbuster movie ‘Dangal’ was aimed at promoting women athletes.
Jatin Sapru, who was anchoring the session, played a rapid-fire round. Sapru asked a few cricket-related questions. Both Aamir and Zaira answered one question each correctly and then came the tie-breaker question. On being asked about the captain of the Indian Women’s Cricket Team, Aamir said,” I know but I’m not getting it now.”
Aamir had given up guessing the names and Zaira also accepted her defeat. Sapru gave a few hints but none of them could answer and later he himself told them that it’s Mithali Raj.
Aamir was also asked which Indian player’s style does he follow the most, to which he said,”It’s definitely Virat Kohli.” Zaira also revealed her likeness towards the Indian skipper saying, “be it his way of playing the game of cricket or his attitude, Virat is very good.”
