Ranveer Singh, deep in the preparation mode of his upcoming Kapil Dev biography, is a part of the ICC World Cup as well, and no, not as a member of the Indian cricket team. The actor was recently seen on the stands, cheering team India as they took over Pakistan for a nail-biting experience.
Whilst the actor joined the commentators in the box and some of our favourite cricketers for plenty of Instagrammable moments, it was his usual antics that earned him the spotlight. High on energy as ever, Ranveer Singh left no stone unturned in cheering for his home team and then celebrating with them once the match was won.
His presence during the said match, however, has also become a part of a problem, earning him a legal notice. While celebrating the victory, Ranveer had tweeted a picture with Hardik Pandya, the caption of which said, "Eat. Sleep. Dominate. Repeat. The name is Hardik. Hardik Pandya." The phrase was a spin on a war-cry made popular by WWE star Brock Lesnar, who popularised the 'Eat, Sleep, Conquer, Repeat' anthem.

In response to the actor's tweet, Paul Heyman, Brock Lesnar's advocate tweeted a response of his own, threatening legal action for the use. It read, "@RanveerOfficial

This isn't the first time Paul Heyman has had an issue with the cricketing world. Earlier, he had tweeted on a similar matter when the official Twitter handle of the Cricket World Cup had used the words in a tweet praising MS Dhoni.
Ranveer Singh is yet to comment on the matter.
