One Bollywood celeb who has lately been showing spirited interest in the sport like his industry counterparts is the heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor.
The actor quite lately is having an unwavering love for cricket after participating in a few celebrity matches. In a recent interview, when asked to choose the most enterprising players from Bollywood for the cricket team, Ranbir surprisingly pitched for Amitabh, Aamir and Hrithik.
“The three players who have to be on a cricket team are Amitabh Bachchan, Hrithik Roshan and Aamir Khan,” stated Ranbir.
Ranbir charts out positions for three stars
Ranbir believes that these three actors can bring magic and the much elusive victory to the cricket team with their capabilities.
Giving them interesting field responsibilities, Ranbir stated that he will put Amitabh near the boundary, since he is tall and won’t have a problem catching all the sixes.
Commenting on Aamir, he added that since the actor is great at analyzing and studying every situation he would be perfect as a wicket keeper. However, while giving a position for Hrithik, Ranbir said that the ‘Guzaarish’ actor has to be a bowler on the field, since he’s quite swift and easy and can certainly baffle any batsmen.
Ranbir campaigns for sports
Ranbir who has been chosen as a brand ambassador for Fit India Movement will be campaigning to promote sports in schools and will also be making it a career.
Fit India Movement, a campaign started by NDTV and Nirmal Lifestyle, is an initiative that aims to bring out talents in sports. For this initiative, Ranbir would be campaigning in schools across the nation.
Ranbir, who launched the first phase of this campaign ‘Marks For Sports’ in Delhi, entered the venue on a bicycle and spoke at length about the campaign.
"It all begins at the school level and Marks for Sports is a campaign that will help discover the talent that our children have and sports teaches you so much. Other than making you fit, it teaches you discipline, motivation and team spirit,” stated the young Kapoor.
Talking about his favorite sport, Ranbir said that he had always loved football, but unfortunately, nobody had been there to guide him to take it up as a career.
