"Me superstitious about watching match coz' we lose... but after 33 for 2 (sic), don't know why, sat in front of TV till the six from (M.S.) Dhoni," he tweeted after India's six wicket victory at the Wankhede Stadium.

"Diya ghuma ke, ghuma ke, ghuma ke!!," he wrote, very excited.

The 68-year-old says he hadn't previously witnessed the kind of euphoria in the city that followed India's victory.

"No one is saying anything...just screaming!! It is bizarre!!! Roads lanes everywhere jammed with people and screams!! Never before!"

"Anhonee ko hooni kar de, honi ko anhonee ! Ek jagah jab jama hon tinoh - Rajni, Gajni aur Dhoni!!!" he tweeted.

The megastar's excitment was evident from the fact that he was simultaneoulsy updating his Twitter page and his blog.

"We won ! We are the World Champions! Yeeeehhhhh!!," he posted on his blog.

Amitabh, too, joined the jubilant crowds with son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai.

"It is madness outside!! Abhishek, Aishwarya and me on top of the roof of a car, waving tricolor and just screaming!! Hundreds with us."

"We are the world!! Just back from...sitting on top of the roof, waving the tricolor and just screaming!!"

Overwhelmed after India won the World Cup after 28 years, actress Aishwarya Rai is proud of Team India and Sachin Tendulkar.

"Delirious with joy...screamed hoarse...Love India and Love India Team...Full power and God Bless...and much love to Sachin...So So Happy...Team India is the BESSSTT," Aishwarya said in SMS released by her publicist.

India defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets in the World Cup final at the Wankhede Stadium here to lift the World Cup for the second time since 1983.

Meanwhile, Singing legend Lata Mangeshkar says she was sure that India would lift the World Cup Saturday.

"I was confident that India will win the World Cup. I would like to congratulate the whole Indian team and the country for this win," Lata told a news channel.

The 88-year-old, who is a great admirer of Sachin Tendulkar, said: "Sachin toh desh ka Kohinoor hai. (Sachin is the jewel of India)."
