Abhishek Bachchan-Bipasha Basu took on Neil Nitin Mukesh-Sonam Kapoor in a bowling competition here Thursday which ended with their opponents being roundly pipped, much to the delight of the large crowd that had gathered to watch the rivalry unfold.
The competition for the Golden Bowling Trophy was staged at the PVR BluO at the Ambience Mall in Vasant Kunj to promote their film “Players”.
As the foursome started playing, the alley was filled with the sounds of cheering and clapping.
Although Abhishek pretended he didn’t know much about the game, he kickstarted the match by striking out hard and roared: “Bring it on guys. I am ready to play.”
Neil gave Abhishek tough competition, while Sonam most of the time ended up hitting loose shots. She later showed improvement, eliciting praise from Bipasha, who said: “You are improving Sonam.”
Bipasha, however, refused to play. The reason? Eyesight problems.
“I would need my specs to get the right shots,” she said jokingly.
All in all Abhishek emerged the winner with the maximum number of points, though Neil too fought hard.
