Ranbir Kapoor must be very used to gushing and swooning. People, especially girls, swooning and gushing over him, that is.

But he wasn't prepared when he came face-to-face with his idol Lionel Andres Messi in Barcelona on Friday, reports Mumbai Mirror.

The 28-year-old actor had a couple of disappointing hits-and-misses when it came to meeting the striker for Barcelona. And a source informed that Kapoor had arranged to meet Messi in Kolkatta at the friendly recently.

"Ranbir would have loved to watch the match in Kolkata, but due to his prior work commitments, he had to cancel his plans to meet his idol. The actor had to shoot for Anurag Basu’s Barfee, since the slated schedule was postponed due to bad weather. That’s why Ranbir could not attend the match," explained the tabloid's source.

So when the Rockstar actor travelled to Barcelona for a college reunion and meet the team minus Messi, he was sorely disappointed.

"He got an invite from team Barcelona. They had heard about Ranbir when they were in India and learnt that he is a Barcelona and Messi fan. However when Ranbir met the team members and coach of the team on Thursday, Messi wasn’t present. He was a little disappointed."

Then came the moment Kapoor had been waiting for when he got an invite from his favourite team again.

It was Kapoor's dream come true.

"Messi personally autographed Ranbir’s cap and they spoke at length about their respective fields. They also took his autographs." the source revealed to Mumbai Mirror.

"Yes he met Messi on Friday. Ranbir is a huge fan of Messi and was regretting the fact that he could not meet him, when he was here last week. They both also represent the same brand but had never met earlier," confirmed Ranbir’s brand manager Anirban Blah.Ranbir Kapoor must be very used to gushing and swooning.
