Actor Abhishek Bachchan, also the captain of All Stars Football Club, has been practicing very hard for the first-ever charity football game, Playing for Humanity, despite being unwell.

“He is the captain of the team and from the past one week, has developed a terrible viral infection and bad throat. He has been on antibiotics and is regularly visiting the doctor. The doctor has advised him bed rest but he has been practicing every day at the cost of his health,” says a source close to the actor. The team will be playing its first game tomorrow at Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, against the All Hearts Foundation, comprising the Indian Cricket Team, led by captain Virat Kohli. The proceeds of the match will go to Magic Bus, a non-profit organisation that works towards the development of underprivileged kids.
