Apparently, he arranged a special screening of his latest film Force 2 (co-starring Sonakshi Sinha and Tahir Raj Bhasin) for them and the team’s management as well.
“John’s football team is based in Guwahati. The team is currently participating in a league. The actor had specially flown to the city amidst his hectic schedule only to meet the players. John is extremely passionate about the sport and takes part in everything that concerns the team. He had organised a screening of his film so that they could take some time off from the hectic training schedules,” says a source, adding, “He interacts with the players as often as he can. He makes sure to spend time with them to boost their morale and encourage them. John has also roped in a Brazilian coach to train the team.”
Apparently, the Shootout At Wadala (2013) actor tries to attend most of the matches that he can. At times, he also joins the team members during their training sessions as he enjoys playing the sport with them.
