Auro turns cricket commentator for the India-Sri Lanka T-20 match tomorrow

Amitabh Bachchan as Auro will now be a T20 cricket commentator for the India-Sri Lanka cricket match to be held on December 12. Amitabh will be doing the ‘expert commentary’ in the breaks between the match.

Confirming the story, Paa’s director Balki says, “Auro will be doing the expert commentary for television for the T20 match in Mohali.”

A big cricket aficionado, the challenge for Big B would be to do a cricket commentary for the first time, and that too in Auro’s soft and childish voice. A challenge that the actor is already gearing himself for.

In the meanwhile, spurred by the poignant story of Auro, Bihar’s chief minister Nitish Kumar has announced financial aid for the two Bihari progeric brothers Eqramul and Ali Hussein.

Balki is delighted by the impact of the film. “Now that’s the kind of story one likes to hear about Paa. But let me repeat we did not make Paa to spotlight progeria.”

The Progeria Research Foundation in the US is showing a keen interest in Paa. Says Balki, “I’d be only too happy for them to watch the film and decide how Paa could spread awareness about progeria.”
