Bollywood hero Ranveer Singh was in Cleveland taking part in the NBA All-Star celebrity game on Friday Night. The charismatic actor who is the brand ambassador for the NBA in India, was joined on-court by other celebrities such as Machine Gun Kelly, Quavo, Jack Harlow, and many more.
All the celebrities at the game were given introductions prior to the game. The host introduced Singh by saying, “Brand ambassador for India, this Bollywood star has over 38 million Instagram followers, number 69, Ranveer Singh.” Singh, rocking his thick black locks held back together in an orange headband, ran down in graffiti-filled shorts and sleeveless shirt, with number 69 on his back, giving high-fives to other participating players on the court.
“I have been following basketball since my childhood and playing keenly since my teams,” said Singh earlier in an interview with Pinkvilla. “It is a life-enhancing sport that has developed a righteous sportsman’s spirit within me which has helped me tremendously in my career and personal life as well. It is an absolute honour to participate in the NBA All-Stars celebrity game and I am grateful for this opportunity, and I look forward to living my dream.”
During the match, Singh was showered with copious amounts of love by his fans. This inspired him to post an earnest note for them on his Instagram story after the game.
“I just had the most incredible experience at the All-Star game, but the highlight by far was the love and energy that my fans gave me at the game,” Singh wrote. “I’m deeply touched and overwhelmed, literally brought to tears by the end of it. I feel the grace of god through you all. Not sure what I’ve done to deserve this kind of love, but I am filled with just pure gratitude. Thank you all from the deepest embers of my heart.”
The Bollywood superstar was last seen on-screen in Kabir Khan’s 83, which was influenced by the Indian Cricket Team’s triumph in the 1983 ICC World Cup win, where the actor played the role of former Indian captain Kapil Dev in the film.
