Last night, Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh flew to Cleveland to take part in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game,
which features some of the world’s best musicians and basketball players.
Ranveer was named NBA Brand Ambassador for India by the National Basketball Association in September 2021.
He discusses how his participation in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game highlights the-
‘representation of the Indian acting fraternity on the global stage.’
Padmaavat actor quotes- ‘It’s quite exciting for me!’
“This is the stuff on which dreams are made of. That it’s so far out of the realm of possibility that it’s not even on my bucket list.
I’ll be competing against and alongside some of the best entertainers and athletes in the world,
and it’ll be a fantastic experience to be in Cleveland.
For this, it will be a weekend-long celebration of basketball culture.
It’s something I’m really looking forward to.”
“I do wish to contribute to propelling Indian cinema to a place of global recognition.
Despite the language barrier, I believe the Koreans have done an excellent job,
and it serves as an example of what Indian cinema may look like in the future,” he adds.
Since he is filming for his upcoming film, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani,
Ranveer hasn’t been able to get much practise in before the All-Star celebrity game.
He plans to hit the court as much as possible on the land of Cleveland,
where he will be coached by NBA legend Bill Walton.
