Minissha Lamba (cover image) is the latest celebrity from Bollywood to get associated with a poker site. A recent press release announced that Lamba has been appointed as the celebrity pro by India’s largest poker site – Adda52.com.
The actor has already displayed her acting skills in movies like Kidnap, Zila Ghaziabad, Yahaan, Bachna Ae Haseeno and Well Done Abba. She was introduced to poker through some of her friends from abroad who introduced her to the sport around six years back and has been hooked since.
“A couple of my friends had come down from abroad and they were talking about poker. Of course, one knows there’s a game called poker, but I always thought it’s a bit difficult, and told them, I’m pretty dyslexic with numbers and it sounds complicated’. But the more they taught me and explained the game to me, the more I felt I could be attracted to it,”said the actress.
Lamba has already made appearances in many poker tournaments in Goa and has been part of some of the biggest tournaments hosted in the country.
Her first appearance representing Adda52 was at the ongoing WPT 500 Aria Las Vegas event.
One would assume that her acting skills would help her on the poker tables but the actress clarifies, “On the poker table, everyone’s a great actor. They are all brilliant actors there… So being an actor doesn’t help much at all.”
A thrilled Lamba also shared her views on the alliance saying “Adda52.com has not just provided the poker players with a great platform to showcase their skill and grow themselves as a player but also encouraged people to understand poker as a game of skill and a sport. I am excited to work with India’s largest poker website and will be representing them in WPT 500 Aria poker tournament. I will also be honing my poker skills with Adda52.com and expecting to take my gaming skills to next level with the training provided by them.”
Anuj Gupta, founder and CEO of Adda52.com welcomed Lamba,“We are thrilled to have Minissha as our brand ambassador. Her beauty and confidence on the poker table associates well with everything we wish to exhibit through our website for the online-gaming industry. Abiding by our simple mantra ‘Go Play’,”.
