Popular Card Players in India



“Don’t become a philosopher before you become rich” this is not just a statement, from SRK’s speech that he delivered at Yale. The gravity of it revolves around the speaker. In itself it is true, but the status of a celebrity makes it a verse.  What celebrities say and do have a strong bearing on our lives. Have you noticed one thing that is common for all celebrities? They are passionate about whatever they do; be it acting, directing, photography or playing cards. Let’s talk about the side most of us are not aware of; the one without cameras and lights. The action hero in reel life might be a voracious reader. The zombie on screen can be a pure vegetarian! Read the most untold stories about the famous celebrities.  


Cards Have a Story to Tell  

The 13 Card Rummy or Poker are not just destined for Bond movies, where Mr. Bond stole the show with one move and got off in style in an Aston Martin. Sometimes the same guy can’t even manage to  make a pure sequence. It is a well known fact that cards have always acted as a levee for acquaintances to become friends. From Marilyn Monroe to Deepika Padukone; who’s an avid Mendicot (Dehla Pakad) head, famous people love to spend time socializing and playing card games. During the shooting of “Karthik Calling Karthik” she continued to play it on a commercial flight for the entire time. We bet you didn’t know this.  The “Udta Punjab” actor, Shahid Kapoor is a hardcore poker lover. The 36 year old actor is known for arranging grand Poker nights at his place in Versova and superstars like Aamir Khan, Fardeen Khan, Hrithik Roshan and many more are seen making their way to Kapoor’s house.


Who Else       

We are not just throwing names randomly just to make it more like an award night. Mandira Bedi; the cricket buff and actress, who acted in first ever daily soap on Indian television is a passionate card player. You may be a banker or physics lecturer or maybe a T20 presenter, card games like Indian Rummy or poker are extremely popular as they allow us all to lose ourselves in the world of numbers. Shilpa Shetty, an actress and business woman, who is pretty open about her fondness of poker has been seen trying her hands at cards on many occasions. During the Diwali party at the Bacchan’s place Jalsa, the actress along with her husband were playing cards and later Aksahay Kumar joined the same table too. The Celebrity Big Brother 5 winner has claimed to have learnt the tricks from her husband, Mr. Raj Kundra.
