When Neha Dhupia raced ahead of VVS Laxman
New Delhi: He may be an ace on the pitch but cricketer VVS Laxman is no match to Bollywood beauty Neha Dhupia when it comes to online gaming.
The two were in the city to promote an online gaming championship when they were pitted against one another to play a car racing game.
Though Dhupia did not seem quite confident in the beginning as she announced she is a "lousy driver", the actress raced ahead of Laxman in no time and won the contest.
"This is unbelievable. I am not lying when I say I am horrible at driving but this is some thing. I think VVS is too much of a gentleman that is why he graciously made way for me," Dhupia said.
The actress, who will next be seen in Akshay Kumar-Aishwarya Rai starrer `Action Replayy`, said she is a complete gaming freak with Space Invader being her favourite.
"Gaming is one of the best stress busters in my life. Whenever I am in between a shoot or have some free time, I get online and try my hand at some game or the other. I used to play Mario a lot when I was a kid but now I am hooked to Space Invader. The sense of winning is exhilarating," Dhupia said.
Gillette Mach 3 India Gaming championship 2010 in association with Zapak claims to be the world`s biggest online gamimg contest and will be step ahead of its last year edition.
It plans to expand to 34 cities as compared to 8 last year and hopes to have more than 2 million participants vying for prizes worth Rs 1.5 crores.
