From congested alleys to the glitz and glam of showbiz, the World Cup craze is everywhere. Like hardcore cricket fans sitting in front of TV sets, actors who spend a bulk of their time on shooting sets are also following the tournament and rooting for our cricket team. Actor-model Apurbo spoke to The Daily Star about the ICC Cricket World Cup.

What's your expectation from the Tigers?

Apurbo: I expect a lot from them. And I have faith that the team will make a difference. There's no harm in hoping that we will win the tournament.  

What are your predictions this time?

Apurbo: My heart remains with Bangladesh. Tigers are always my favourite and I cannot imagine any other team holding up the cup. So, I am not predicting anything other than wishing our team good luck.

What is your plan for watching the World Cup?

Apurbo: I am a hardcore cricket follower. But as I have a busy schedule every day it is difficult to keep one's eyes on television. Nevertheless, I stay updated on scores through radio, television and other mediums. When I am on the shooting set, I follow the match on the sets along with co-artistes and the production team, and when I am home I watch it on TV.

How does the cricket craze touch showbiz?

Apurbo: I feel the way other Bangladeshis do. To me and all of us, it is big celebration. And when Tigers win a match our joy crosses every limit and we dive into celebrations.
