The love for football has no bounds around the globe. And our B-town celebrities have never missed an opportunity to show their passion for the sport on and off the field. Earlier it was in the name of friendly football matches, where stars like Abhishek Bachchan, John Abraham, Ranbir Kapoor were often spotted. And taking it to another level was the launch of Indian Super League for football, where Bollywood’s major hotties went ahead and co-owned football teams to invest in! Where Abhishek co-owns Chennaiyin FC, Ranbir Kapoor has co-invested in Mumbai City FC, Hrithik Roshan in FC Pune City and John Abraham in NorthEast United FC.
So when on Tuesday Hrithik, FCPC won the match of this season ISL, the actor took to the Twitter and expressed his joy and gratitude towards the team’s fans. The actor’s team defeated their arch rivals, Ranbir Kapoor’s Mumbai City FC by 3-1.
In the picture, along with the actor, one can also spot the beautiful actress, Lisa Ray. The handsome actor tweeted;
@iHrithik: Punekars thank you for Turing up and supporting the team. What a great start to ISL. Well done @FCPuneCity
The celebrity quotient had helped revive the dying support of Kabbadi in the country, so let’s hope the stars love for Football will give a new lease of life to soccer in the nation. And amidst of the ISL season, it will be interesting to see the bevy of star owners lining the football field in next few weeks to come!
