Ranbir Kapoor was in Delhi shooting yesterday for Marks For Sports- an initiative that aims to give sports in the country more leverage. Ranbir was really happy to meet Baichung. He immediately got friendly though they met for the first time.
Ranbir being an avid sports fan also got onto the field with the torchbearer of Indian football, Baichung Bhutia. Not only were the two completely involved in the game but also grew close during the course of the event and have decided to meet again.
Says a source “Ranbir loves football and is pretty good at it as well. It was a treat to have Bhutia play with him on the field. The two got along well and Bhaichung was also seen showing Ranbir some moves. They bonded over the game and have decided to meet again and talk about sports at leisure.”
Ranbir has been a football fan since childhood, and he was also showing the tactics he knows. Strongly supporting the cause of Marks For Sports. Ranbir says “We need to strike a fine balance between both education and sports. Sports is equally important more so in today’s day and age. Thankfully my parents encouraged both work and play and were very supportive when I took up football as a sport.”
Ranbir also says, “Sports has become big in the hearts and mind of Indians now, especially after the success of our Athletes and Sport stars at the Olympic and Commonwealth Games. I really believe this is a great initiative to catalyze awareness for Sports and Fitness to be part of our daily lives. And what better way to do this than to make Sports a part of every child’s school curriculum.”
