Sonakshi Sinha: “I am at home enjoying the match.”

Sushmita Sen: “Oh I am absolutely riveted!!”

Shabana Azmi: “We had a cricket party at home with crazy enthusiasts rooting for India to win.

After much screaming and shouting and whistling, the party simmered down.”

Asin: “I am totally hooked to the match. Screaming my lungs, clapping cheering whistling. One Tapori I’v become J”

Shilpa Shetty: “I am in Dubai and I am glued to the match. I am sure even those who are not cricket crazy were glued.”

Raveena Tandon: “You’ll think I’m crazy. But I returned from Mohali when the match started. The return flight was otherwise at 1.30 a.m. And with the VVIP movement in air there would’ve been further delays. I had to shoot from 7 a.m. on Thursday till 2 in the night. I’d have been knackered. So I left my husband (Anil Thadani) at the stadium.”

Chitrangda Singh: “I wish I could have watched it. But my mum is going through a heart check-up. But I keep checking the scores.”

Urmila Matondkar: “I am absolutely riveted. What a match!”

Pooja Bedi: “I am overseeing my home’s renovation, filing insurance claims for my car, writing my column and playing popcorn mom to my kids’ friends who have come to watch the match. And I bit off my six nails when our 2nd, 3rd and 4th wickets fell rapidly. Multi-tasking match madness.”
