Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan just like many others is all set to witness the much-awaited India-Pakistan World Cup 2019 match, and it coincides with Father's Day too.
Anticipating both events, Shah Rukh Khan tweeted a picture with his son Aryan and said, "Ready for the match with the spirit of #FathersDay. Go India Go!! The jerseys donned by the father-son duo had the names of the iconic characters from The Lion King -- King Mufasa and Simba -- etched on it.
Shah Rukh Khan, one of the finest actors in Bollywood, owns cricket franchises in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and he has never shied away to show his love for the sport.
The much-anticipated India vs Pakistan World Cup 2019 clash will be held at the Old Trafford in Manchester and as per weather reports, might be hit by scattered showers throughout the day. On Saturday, there was slight relief as rain had stopped pouring in the afternoon which has resulted into dampened areas on the field.
Meanwhile, the superstar will be the chief guest at this year's Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, the festival organisers announced Thursday. Helmed by the Victorian government, Australia, the IFFM is back for its 10th edition in the cultural city and will celebrate "courage" as its central theme.
Khan said he is honoured and delighted to accept the invitation. "An industry of our magnitude and diversity deserves to be celebrated with great passion and fervour, which is what the festival embodies."I'm particularly pleased with the theme of the festival this year which is courage, an emotion that resonates with storytellers who really have the might to change the society and the world. I have had great memories of shooting for 'Chak De! India' in Melbourne and look forward to being back again, this time to celebrate Indian cinema," the actor said in a statement.
