So it is one more thing off my bucket list”
When Farhan Akhtar asked about playing a footballer from the League on-screen, he said, “Why not? I mean, I think given the way I look, my skin colour, I’d probably play someone from South America, Or Spain or Portugal, I would Imagine. From current lot, Luis Suarez, would be someone I’d like to play, I got slightly sticky out teeth like him”

So there are lots of life lessons that can be learnt through sports and of course, it makes you fit and that is one gift you can give yourself”
