Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan has found himself at the center of a quirky superstition circulating on social media after the legendary actor disclosed that the Indian cricket team consistently emerges victorious when he refrains from watching their matches. 

Following Team India's triumph against New Zealand in the ICC World Cup semi-final, Bachchan took to his official X account, stating, "When I don't watch, we WIN!" 

His post quickly went viral, prompting a flood of warnings from netizens, urging him to abstain from viewing the upcoming World Cup final on Sunday. Some enthusiasts even jokingly suggested extreme measures like isolating him on a remote island during the crucial match day. 

Here are some of the hilarious reactions to Big B’s post:

On the other hand, numerous Bollywood celebrities, including Ranbir Kapoor, John Abraham, Kiara Advani, Sidharth Malhotra, Shahid Kapoor, and Anushka Sharma, graced the World Cup semi-final at Wankhede stadium on Wednesday.

Notably, Team India beat New Zealand by 70 runs to enter the fourth final of the Cricket World Cup which is scheduled to be played on November 19 (Sunday).

For India, Mohammed Shami claimed his third five-wicket haul of the tournament in a brilliant 7-57 after Virat Kohli struck a record-breaking 50th century in ODIs and Shreyas Iyer blasted a second successive century to help India defeat New Zealand and storm into the final of the ICC Men's World Cup 2023 on Wednesday.
