Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor, who is part of the All Stars Football Club — a property of charitable trust Playing for Humanity — will play his first match on March 30, along with several other celebrities. The team will play against the Indian national cricket team, which will be headed by Virat Kohli.
Ranbir, who is a self-confessed football fan, however, feels that it’s about time schools and colleges in the country take the sport seriously. He says, “I have been passionate about football ever since I was in school. I played for the under-14 and the under-16 tournaments as well as at district level. Every school should encourage the sport in India at a young age.”
