Bloomberg roots for India in Cricket World Cup

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Here to attend a renewable energy investor meet, New York City's former Mayor and media baron Michael Bloomberg wants India to lift the Cricket World Cup in Australia.

In a light-vein address, Bloomberg also expressed his love for Bollywood. "... If i get an offer to play a part in Bollywood movie... And come back and collect the best actor trophy."

"I don't think SRK (Shah Rukh Khan) has anything to worry about," he said in a tongue-in-cheek manner.

Talking about cricket, Bloomberg also mentioned about India's win over Pakistan in the World Cup match yesterday.

"I want to see India winning the title second time in row...Go Team Blue!"

Drawing parallels between New York and New Delhi, he said both places are great to find Indian food at 3 in the morning.

"We want more number of Indians to study in America and work there as we want more intelligent and smart people."

He said the immigration laws is what the present federal government needs to look at.

Before leaving for India, the three-term mayor of New York City had said he would focus on climate leadership, solar power, smart cities, road safety and Indian youth during his trip.
