For the first time ever, Manchester United Football Club would be associated with an Indian film. The makers of John Abraham-Bipasha Basu starrer Goal, scheduled for release this month-end, have tied up with the club in an attempt to lure soccer fans to the theatres.
The story of the film is about a club which risks closure unless it starts winning games. John plays the role of a footballer who is inspired by the English Premier League champions. To motivate his players, the manager of the club takes them to Manchester United.
A scene in the film, directed by Vivek Agnihotri, has also been shot on the premises of the Manchester United club. It is reported that England's Wayne Rooney and Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo will be some of the faces in the film's promotional clips. Soccer fans surely won't give this flick a miss.
