In a perfect amalgam of two of India’s greatest passions -- cinema and cricket -- Bollywood actor Sidharth Malhotra set off on a thrilling jetboating experience with former New Zealand cricketers Stephen Fleming, Simon Doull and Scott Styris at the Skippers Canyon here on Thursday.
They enjoyed a speedy ride through the narrowest canyons on the Shotover River, soaking in the breathtaking scenery. Doull even tweeted: “Thanks so much @PureNewZealand for a great day & half in Queenstown. Awesome time @scottbstyris @S1dharthM @SPFleming7.”
Sidharth has been on an adventure spree in New Zealand. After skydiving from 15,000 ft, he had a whirlwind of a trip by rising to 6,000 ft in a hot air balloon, and then went jetboating.
“For the last two days, I was experiencing some fantastic adventure activities in Queenstown. I will be experiencing more of the local Maori culture for the next couple of days,” Sidharth said.
The trio of former cricketers also seemed at ease during the jetboat experience and seemed to gel well with Sidharth, who has been appointed as tourism ambassador of New Zealand in India.
