According to one of the comments on Facebook, the charity match (played for drought-struck Maharashtra) was played at Mumbai’s Shivaji Park in 1962 or thereabouts. However, another comment says that it was hosted by the Maharaja of Patiala in 1956.
The stadium was packed as people came in to watch Team Dilip Kumar play Team Raj Kapoor.
Other Bollywood actors who played the match included Shashi Kapoor, Mehmood, Joy Mukherjee, I S Johar, Shubha Khote and more.
And going by the overall atmosphere, people (including the Bollywood actors) were passionate about cricket back then too.
