Aamir Khan, Bollywood stars console Indian team in emotional notes
The Indian cricket team lost semi-finals to New Zealand but received a warm welcome from Bollywood stars and were lauded for their efforts.
Aamir Khan penned an emotional note for the blue shirts, praising them for their performance throughout the tournament.
In a tweet, he wrote: “Hard luck Virat. Just wasn’t our day today. For me, India had already won the World Cup when we qualified for the semis at the top of the list as the No 1 team. Well played guys, throughout the tournament. I just wish it hadn’t rained yesterday… The result might have been different.” The actor signed off the note, saying “But well done, proud of our team. Love.”
