Neha Dhupia wore a pink jacket and track bottoms, while her husband, actor Angad Bedi, wore an elaborate outfit that included a long, cape-like jacket, a kurta, and sneakers. Only singer Guru Randhawa wore formals.
This is the first time that an NBA match is being held in India, and Prime Minster Narendra Modi wrote on Twitter that it will help build India-USA ties. He wrote, “Basketball is very popular among our youth. The @NBA matches set the stage, or rather set the court for greater linkages in sports. I hope more youngsters pursue basketball and also contribute to the Fit India Movement.”
Priyanka is currently in India, promoting her upcoming film, The Sky is Pink, which also stars Farhan. Parineeti, meanwhile, recently completed filming the remake, The Girl on the Train.
