FIFA World Cup 2014 is going on and everybody in our country irrespective of Indian team's absence is excited about it. While Bollywood's obsession with the game has been told a billion times, what we have observed is that there are several look-a-likes of Bollywood celebrities in FIFA World Cup 2014.
Yes, seems like they are trying to compensate for Indian team's absence and so now they have a Bollywood doppelganger in about every team that is participating. Football fascination is not new to Bollywood or our country, in fact the Kolkata football team is quite famous for their expertise in the game. John Abraham who is 2014 FIFA World Cup brand ambassador in India, as appointed by sports and entertainment channel Sony SIX, is also a co-owner of Indian Super League (ISL) Guwahati franchise North East United FC.
He may just rope in some real football players for his movie production 1911. The film is a inspirational story of late Indian footballer Sibdas Bhaduri, who captained Mohun Bagan in the historic 1911 IFA Shield final when they defeated the East Yorkshire Regiment to become the maiden Asian team to emerge victorious in the competition.
John, a football fan himself, is upbeat about the project, which he is not just producing but also acting in. John was even heard saying that he would have loved to play football for India, but perhaps he's living his passion by playing a footballer on the big screen.
