Mumbai, March 31 (IANS) Actor Sanjay Dutt, who featured on the 'Extraaa Innings T20' show on MAX, says he is pitching for the Mumbai Indians team in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket tournament.
'I am a Mumbai boy, so I am supporting Mumbai Indians,' Sanjay told IANS outside the studio at the Film City here Tuesday. He appeared on the show in his unique Game Master avatar that he has donned for the new Pepsi ad.
'Fantastic experience to be right here in the studio. I do follow a lot of cricket not only now, ever since I was small. I love cricket,' he added.
Asked how prepared was he to talk cricket on the show, he said: 'Today, I didn't get much to talk about cricket, but if god wishes I would be sitting there as guest and talking about cricket.'
Sanjay has teamed up with Ranbir Kapoor in Pepsi's new interactive ad 'The Game' and says he enjoys working with the young actor.

He also said that he maintains a good rapport with the Kapoor family.
'Our families are close to each other since Rajji (Raj Kapoor). My mother had worked in RK Films for many, many years... for so many films. So the bonding in family came right from there and it has continued for so many generations now.'
