Amitabh Bachchan Sympathizes with SRH Owner Kavya Maran After IPL Loss to KKR


Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was heartbroken after Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) lost to Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) final. Big B shared his sympathy for SRH owner Kavya Maran, who was visibly emotional after the defeat.

Taking to his blog, Amitabh wrote, “The IPL Final is over and KKR have WON a most convincing victory… SRH were simply outplayed… disappointing in many ways because SRH is a good team and one has seen their very grand performances over the days when they played other matches.”

He added, “But what was most touching to observe was the pretty young lady, the owner of SRH, in the Stadium, get emotional after the loss and break into tears, turning her face away from the cameras, so as not to display her emotion… I felt bad for her!! Never mind… tomorrow is another day, my dear!!”


In the match, SRH won the toss and elected to bat first. KKR dominated with continuous wickets, with Mitchell Starc justifying his hefty price tag. SRH was bundled out for 113 in 18.3 overs, with only skipper Pat Cummins and Aiden Markram crossing the 20-run mark.

Andre Russell (3/19) was the top bowler for KKR, with Starc (2/14) and Harshit Rana (2/24) also making significant contributions. KKR chased down the 114-run target in just 10.3 overs, with Venkatesh Iyer and Rahmanullah Gurbaz shining for KKR in the final match.

Meanwhile, Amitabh Bachchan is busy shooting for ‘Vettaiyan’, which also stars Rajinikanth. Photos of the megastars on the sets of TJ Gnanavel’s upcoming film have gone viral. Big B will also be seen with Prabhas, Deepika Padukone, and Kamal Haasan in ‘Kalki 2898 AD’, set to hit theaters on June 27.
