'D' actor Randeep Hooda impressed one and all when he took the
'risk' with some gravity-defying pace on his Army-bred horse at an
Arena Polo match at the Mahalaxmi Race Course this week. Organized by
the Amateur Riders Club, the match was played at night under flood
lights at the centre of the race track,Randeep Hooda" src="http://www1.india-forums.com/bollywood/images/uploads/randeep_hooda_impress_big.gif" align="right" border="" hspace="5" vspace="5"> creating history for being the
first of its kind in Mumbai.
Showing off his evolving skills with horses, Randeep rode with zest
and confidence, vigorously competing with the other players Mitesh
Mehta, Shyam Mehta, A.P.Singh, Brian Alexander, Rahul Dwarkadas, Nassir
Jamal, Shariff Furniturewala, Shujoy Shetty, Charles Shepard, Rohan,
Ajay Savala and Zahan Kapoor with the hour-long match finally ending in
Ketan Mehta, the director of the actor's forthcoming film 'Rang Rasiya' specially dropped in along with wife Deepa Sahi to cheer Randeep. "I don't know much about Polo, but I could see Randeep rocked during the match," the director quipped, as the crowd in the gallery broke for exotic cocktails served on the sprawling race course lawns, braving the chilly weather.
It can be mentioned here that the Hooda boy has been a riding enthusiast since quite some time and even owns four elegant-looking rough-and-tough horses. "While acting is Randeep's profession, horses have become his biggest passion," commented the actor's spokesperson Dale Bhagwagar. "But that's not to demean any lady on this or the other side of the earth," he quickly added. (SAMPURN)
