Bollywood star shares his WC memories

India’s 1983 World Cup win goes down in history as one of the most iconic triumphs that radically transformed the sport in the country. The Kapil Dev-led Indian side’s toppling of the mighty West Indies in an intense battle in the final of the World Cup inspired a generation of cricketers back in India.

Barring the effect on youngsters who later took up the sport, India’s win also left a lasting impact on other fanatic supporters of the game. Taking a trip down memory lane, Bollywood star Suniel Shetty revealed how feelings of elation engulfed the people present at the place where he was watching the match.

“I remember I was in a restaurant and the bar was filled with people because the final was on. The turn of events and India winning the World Cup led to a wave of euphoria, which resulted in a lot of glasses being shattered and no bills were paid that day since it was a free-for-all,” Shetty joyfully recalled.
