Ranveer Singh is all set to be a part of All Stars Football Club (ASFC), a league which includes actors Ranbir Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan, Sidharth Malhotra, Aditya Roy Kapur, Arjun Kapoor and Dino Morea. As Ranveer has never played football before, the team was surprised at his visit to the game on Sunday practice session.
Producer Bunty Walia operates and takes care of the management of the team. To a leading Indian daily he said, “I have been asking Ranveer to play for ASFC for a while. We were surprised when he dropped by and were amazed to see his game. He played like a pro. He’s a great team guy and bonded well with everyone.”
Walia further added that Ranveer Singh is a football enthusiast who has showed up his interest to partake in the charity matches.
“Ranveer has committed that whenever we have a charity match, he will play. But getting him to sign on the dotted line and be part of the ASFC will take some more cajoling. But I will manage it over a period of time,” said Walia.
Walia opens up about how Ranveer Singh got to know about Sunday’s practice match, he said, “We met at a wedding in Kolkata last week and discussed football. He wanted me to inform him about our next practice session. I messaged him about the Sunday session and he was there.”
Walia also added that the game will aid Ranveer Singh to spend quality time with his Bollywood friends, he said, “The good thing about being part of the team is that the actors get to bond with each other — whether it is Abhishek, Ranbir, Ranveer, Sidharth or Aditya, or the younger lot comprising Ishaan [Khattar] and Adaar and Armaan [Jain].”
