Watching Paa was part of the Indian cricket team’s celebrations after defeating Sri Lanka 2-0 in the recently concluded series. A few team members Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Kumar Raina, Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik watched the film in Nagpur yesterday.

However, Harbhajan Singh missed out on the film as he is in Mumbai. So he called Amitabh Bachchan, who promptly organised a show for him at suburban preview theatre in Mumbai. Our source said, “The Indian cricket team is in Nagpur for the T-20 cricket match with Sri Lanka, which will be held tomorrow (December 9).”

Some of the team members reached Nagpur early yesterday, so they watched Paa there. But Harbhajan was in Mumbai, so he called Amitabh and said he was very keen on watching Paa as he had heard some great things about the film. To this, Amitabh immediately said that he would organise a trial show for him. Amitabh arranged for a show in a preview theatre in Andheri. Harbhajan saw the film at around eight last evening with a few of his friends. Even Sachin Tendulkar had called Amitabh, but he couldn’t make it.”

Amitabh Bachchan confirmed the story and said, “Yes, I organised a show for them.”
