Mallya Junior+awareness drive+ Inside RCB dope, The Mumbai Meetup had it all.

Whoa...The best fan meetup so far. I'm elated. Sidhartha Mallya obliged us fans with his presence for over two hours (albeit a last minute surprise element)

Little did I know that a random tweet update by me calling all RCB fans in Mumbai for a meetup at Leopold, would get the Director of RCB to join us fans and and share the inside dope on players, venues, matches and surprisingly his school days. The Fan Meetup & awareness drive turned out to be a huge success with Mallya Junior playing a great host and fans turning up in large numbers.


 


Toying with a social cause since the fan Summit, the meetup was planned so as to cater to atleast a small social cause from RCB fans to the city of Mumbai. And glad we did...we held a jersey rally along Marine Drive with the help of CORNER STONE, a Mumbai based NGO. We conducted an awareness drive along the roads from Colaba to Marine Drive with social and cleanliness messages pasted on our jersey, holding placards and asking people not to litter. A brief start to what we intend to take a long way.


 


But the real action unfolded at Cafe Leopold, where Sid Mallya turned up (before time..mind you, as Nidhi said UK timings raspberry) with two of his friends and had a 'Good Time' with all the fans. Here's how it all began:


 


Tweete-e-Tweete :


My tweet update for RCB:


Calling all RCB fans in Mumbai for a meetup (4pm @Leopold, Colaba) & Jersey/T-shirt rally thereafter. So are you Mumbaikars, GAME FOR MORE?


 


Sidhartha Mallya replies:  


@RCBTweets I will for sure come along...Leo's is my fav place!


 


 I hope I'm seeing as many RCB fans as possible today at 4pm at Leopolds, Colaba. Will be good to have a catch up and a few beers...

@maddydravid- haha..I'm no celeb, just a passionate RCB fan. PSST..Sid Mallya had a tough time bearing Chennai heat during IPL and said he'll never go there again. Maybe you could drop in here sometime :-)
