Ranbir Kapoor soccer practice session with kids from Magic Bus

“I'm fortunate to be one of the founders of the club. Bunty walia came with this brilliant idea and all the profits go to the charity organisations and I think it’s a great cause and we have had a great time. We are practising every Sunday since the last 6 to 7 months. We all are very passionate. I think sports is very important for every individual not only for celebrities, for various reasons - one it keeps you very healthy and so many things it teaches you about team work, team spirit and discipline.  I'm lucky enough to play a sporting event with cricketers, they all have a great spirit. It will be a fun match. I have been passionate about football right from school days. I played for the under 14, under 16 and I played for the district but then of course once you get into college and start working you lose touch with the sport. I'm lucky to be a part of this as it makes me play football every week. I always played right up on the wings forward but I would like to try and play mid field also at some game. We are trying very hard, we come from a different industry and when we play football we need lot of stamina and practice. It’s a team sport and we are getting there. Every school should encourage the sport in India because if you start encouraging at a young age the kids are aware"- Ranbir Kapoor.
