India celebs show their support for Jinder Mahal before Saturday’s WWE Supershow in New Delhi
The buzz around WWE Live’s Supershow this Saturday is reaching a fever pitch – so much that several local celebrities have taken to social media in support of Jinder Mahal when he faces Triple H at New Delhi’s Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, in a match that is arguably the biggest in Indian history.
Mika Singh, an award-winning singer and composer with more than 150 songs for Bollywood to his credit, welcomed Mahal to India on Twitter Thursday. Singh also expressed his best wishes for The Modern Day Maharaja in his match with The King of Kings.

Singh was joined by Kapil Sharma, one of India’s most popular stand-up comedians and TV personalities. Currently starring in the historical period film “Firangi,” Sharma tweeted Mahal of his intention to be at the stadium this Saturday and “in the corner” of his “brother.”

On Friday, professional boxer Vijender Singh punched in his support on Facebook. The Kaluwas-born pugilist, who has competed for India in the Olympics and Commonwealth Games, and is currently the WBO Asia Pacific Super Middleweight Champion and WBO Oriental Super Middleweight Champion, posted a picture from a training session he had with The Modern Day Maharaja one day earlier.
Earlier this month, Shaan, an esteemed playback singer whose work is heard across a slew of Bollywood soundtrack recordings, did a Facebook Live with Indian singer and "The MJ Show" host Mihir Joshi, where he praised Mahal for his WWE Championship reign. Additionally, Bollywood box-office giant Varun Dhawan chimed in about his excitement over seeing “one crazy live show.”
It’s clear that Jinder Mahal will have the home court advantage in New Dehli this Saturday. Will it be enough for him to fulfill his promise to make the 14-time World Champion and King of Kings bow this Saturday?
