Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan, a die hard Chelsea fan, is over the moon after becoming the first ever person in the world to receive the new jersey of the premiere football club.

The actor who played a team fanatic in Jhoom Barabar Jhoom was at the Stamford Bridge in London to watch Chelsea play against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final match when he was gifted the new jersey by the club's CEO, Peter Kenyon, reported Chelseafc.Com.

"My first trip to the Stamford Bridge was while filming Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, where I played a Chelsea fan. This is my seventh trip and I only flew into London for the game.

"I am a big fan and am trying to bring the world of Chelsea back home in India," Bachchan told the website.
