India vs Pakistan clash has always been more than a game as it involves sentiments of people. Even the high price of tickets couldn’t discourage cricket enthusiast. Sources reveal more than 5 million people tried to book India vs Pakistan T-20 match tickets online and only a few hundred could manage. Tickets sold in black, prices exceed Rs 10,000.
While the whole country was busy celebrating India’s win over Pakistan on March 19, there were some Indians who were disappointed. No, not JNU students, but people who recognized Aftab Shivdasani at the Eden Garden’s stadium.
Mr. Yash Verma, software engineer from Bangalore, who apparently got the list of people who booked ticket online, filed an RTI to find out how Aftab Shivdasani got the ticket. THB correspondent spoke to Yash. Yash said “I was surprised to see Aftab Shivdasani at the stadium, initially I thought he must be one of the guys who were removing water from the ground, but then he was there throughout the match”. Yash added “Aftab is not there in the list of people who booked ticket online. Last movie Aftab did was Grand Masti and everyone knows how it failed at the box office, so Aftab buying ticket in black is almost impossible, this puzzled me and I decided to file an RTI”.
Aftab Shivdasani replied to this news on twitter; he tweeted “this is ridiculous and jobless people create issue out of everything”.
