Earlier this year, Anil Kumble resigned from the post of India’s coach following his rift with the Indian captain Virat Kohli. Kumble’s fans were taken aback by his step and criticised Kohli for his rude attitude and for being authoritative.
Among the attendees also included former Chief selector Sandeep Patil along with Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Zaheer Khan, Jaydev Unadkat, Cheteshwar Pujara and many more. Bollywood bigwigs such as Priyanka Chopra, Madhuri Dixit-Nene, Kangana Ranaut, Prasoon Joshi, Anurag Kashyap, Lara Dutta, Ramesh Taurani, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sidharth Roy Kapur, Vidhu Vinod Chopra, Boman Irani, Rajkumar Hirani, newbies Sara Ali Khan and Ibrahim Ali Khan, Dino Morea, as well as music maestro AR Rahman were present.
