Abhishek's Kick Start IIFA
Footballers and Bollywood actors? Now that's a combo we haven't heard before. And if all goes well, Chelsea Football Club superstars John Terry and Frank Lampard will be present at an Indian film awards event next month. They will be there as special invitees of Abhishek Bachchan.
A source close to the actor reveals, "Abhi is a big Chelsea fan and was specially invited to catch the European Champions League semi-final between his favourite team and Barcelona FC at Stamford Bridge recently, by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich. He also mingled with the Chelsea players and spoke to them at length."
The source further adds, "Abhishek casually asked Terry and Lampard to join him and his family at the award shows and the pair agreed to show up. Terry and Lampard have very little Bollywood influence and it will be interesting to see them come to the awards night."
A couple of years back, Australian cricketer Brett Lee also made an appearance at the same awards show with his brother and that's where he met his now IPL team owner Preity Zinta.
