The 71-year-old veteran actor shared a picture on his Twitter account, which shows him kicking the Brazil ball, and kept posting updates about the game.
T 1512 - FIFA opening ! Been glued to Tv since long and shall see the first game too .. ! Me with Brazil ball !! http://t.co/8h6W8r8xxm
Bachchan, who's a Brazil team fan, asked its players to buck up, and gave a sign of relief when Neymar Jr equalized with a goal, after Marcelo Vieira had scored an own goal, which was also the tournament's very first goal.
And it seems like the actor's prayers were heard, as the Brazilians won the opening match beating Croatia 3-1.
