Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor has always been inclined towards sports, especially football. We have seen the ‘Ishaqzaade’ actor get in the boots for several charity matches and celebrity events. Arjun, who was recently roped in Spanish Football League, La Liga, recently met the one and only Cristiano Ronaldo.
It was a fanboy moment for the actor, just like it would have been for one of us. It is believed that Arjun spoke to the Real Madrid talisman about the Los Blancos’ league journey so far. Arjun Kapoor went on to wish the Portuguese good luck for the Champions League final match against Liverpool in Kiev, Ukraine.
Speaking about the same, a source close to the organization revealed,
“Yes, it’s true that Arjun met Cristiano (he plays for the Spanish football club, Real Madrid). The actor is keenly interested in the sport, and he spoke to Ronaldo about Real Madrid’s season so far and also wished him all the luck for the Champions League final match against Liverpool in Kiev, Ukraine. They also had an in-depth conversation about world football in general and also about Real’s chances of winning in the finals.”
It further came into notice that the two icons also had a chat about the FIFA World Cup scheduled to start in June. Cristiano Ronaldo will be seen leading his nation Portugal with some heavyweights like Bernardo Silva of Manchester City and Andre Gomes of Barcelona in the squad.
The source added,
“Arjun has followed Cristiano’s career and exploits very closely, so he was very excited to meet him and discuss the nitty-gritties of world football, especially since the actor loves the game and is knowledgeable about it too.”
Taking the opportunity Arjun invited the legendary footballer to India. Arjun gave a detailed explanation to Ronaldo about the massive fan following the 5-time Balon winner has. Cristiano in his response mentioned that he would love to come down to the country and is pretty aware of the football craze in India.
“Arjun explained to Cristiano that he has an incredible fan following in India. The actor urged Cristiano to visit India and see for himself the immense love that India has for him. Cristiano, on his part, told Arjun that he would love to come down to India, as he is aware how much the fans here love him,” says the source.
