With the FIFA World Cup in South Africa only three days away, football enthusiasts are gearing up to fly there to catch the action live, and one of them is Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan.

Junior Bachchan is planning to attend the final, revealed his father and Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan. “There is keenness for a group that wishes to be there (World Cup) in the midst of it all to feel the punch of entertainment and game. My home enthusiasts … well just one … Mr Abhishek Bachchan... has expressed his absolute desire to be there for the final,” Amitabh posted on his blog. He added, “I know where this (interest) is coming from. A World Cup final in Los Angeles many years ago between Italy and Brazil had instigated similar interest. And we all just got up and left for the United States of America to attend this great pairing off. Then it was I (who) had suggested that we go, now it is Abhishek that is doing so.”

The 2010 tournament is the 19th FIFA World Cup. The premier international football tournament is scheduled to start June 11.
