Ranbir Kapoor feels that the sport should be played in all schools from class one itself. The star says, “Sports is very important for every individual. It keeps you healthy and teaches you team spirit and discipline.
I have been passionate about football from my school days. I played for the under-14, under-16 teams as well as for the district. But then you start working and you lose touch with the sport.”
The actor feels lucky to be a part of the charity endeavour “as it makes me play football every week. I always played right up on the wings forward but I would like to try and play mid-field also.”
In the meanwhile, Amit Sadh too has been perfecting his footie skills. The Kai Po Che actor says, “I want to give my best. I studied at La Martiniere boarding school in Lucknow. It is known to produce football players. I used to play the game during my school days,” adds Amit.
The actor says going on the fields was an emotional moment for him. “I was very good at soccer. However for the past 15 years I have been unable to play due to my acting pursuits,” he points out.
