It’s good news for fans of Manchester United footballer Rio Ferdinand, as it has been revealed that the ace player may visit India in the summer of 2014. What’s more, while in the country, Rio plans to hang out with actor Shah Rukh Khan.
The duo were seen tweeting to each other on Tuesday evening about meeting up. Rio was the first to extend an invitation to SRK to watch a match, as he tweeted, “@iamsrk I heard u are in the uk next week, are you coming to the @ManUtdgame?? (sic).”
However, SRK replied saying his tight schedule wouldn’t allow him to watch a football match. “@rioferdy5 @ManUtd I wish I could but i am shooting. Will come down later and meet up with you (sic),” wrote SRK. To this, the English defender wrote back saying that he is planning to visit India next year. “@ iamsrk ok let me know and we arrange something! I’m coming over in summer too so will let u know and we hook up. Good luck with the shoot.”
The tweets, however, were taken down later, but snapshots of the conversation were shared by both SRK and Rio (Including Manchester United) fan clubs.
Meanwhile, Rio’s fans were over the moon about the 35-year-old Manchester United player visiting India. Shashwat Bhushan Gupta wrote on Facebook, “Wait Rio is coming to India? Woohoo!” Another Facebook user, Sanjeet Mukadam wrote “Coming over, yay. I’ll be waiting, and this is the only moment to say proudly that I stay in the same city as SRK.”
