Not too many people know about Ranbir Kapoor's secret passion. It came out in the open field on Tuesday when Bollywood played a charity benefit match against a professional team of soccer players at the Abhijeet Kadam Memorial Football Cup match in Pune. Most clearly, Ranbir Kapoor was the man of the match. He not only surprised the spectators and his colleagues who were there at the event with his expertise at the game but also came home to Mumbai triumphant, having scored 4 out of the 7 goals scored by the Bollywood team, leading the film fraternity into a clean victory of the field.
Not only that, Ranbir was declared, 'Man of the Match' in Pune. Suniel Shetty who was present at the match just couldn't stop raving about Ranbir, "I was so surprised! I thought Ranbir was damn a good actor. But I didn't know the boy played soccer like a dream. He's just so good on the field, it's scary." Sunil confesses he is a cricket fan while his son is a big soccer fan. "I was there for the charity football on Tuesday for my son's sake though because of school he couldn't attend."
And why does Sunil find the thought of Ranbir playing soccer so well scary? "Because sports is finally giving Bollywood a run for its money," observes Sunil. "Ranbir plays soccer like a professional. Now Shahrukh Khan and Preity have gone into cricket. Let the IPL matches begin and the cinema theatres will wear a deserted look. First the board exams in March and then the IPL matches in April. I think the movie business is in big trouble this year."
