Bollywood megastar Amitabh hoped the boisterous Kerala crowd which was a sellout for the final between Kerala Blasters and Atletico de Kolkata (ATK) sets the template for everyone across the country.
"I have not seen such a big crowd," Bachchan said during half-time. "The kind of enthusiasm I see here in Kerala is amazing. I really want to thank Nita (Ambani) ji for bringing it to such a large level.
"I hope this continues and may this crowd be an example for the rest of India," Big B, whose son Abhishek is the co-owner of defending champions Chenaiyin FC, added.
The senior Bachchan has been to ISL venues supporting Chennaiyin with his son and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
