All Heart FC vs All Star FC is going to be one of the biggest charity events of the year as renowned faces from two of the biggest industries in India.
Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli’s All Hearts FC will take on All Stars FC, a team comprising of all the big names in Bollywood led by Ranbir Kapoor, in a friendly Football match at the Andheri Sports Complex in Mumbai on October 15.
This game of Football is for the charity and Kohli himself, along with Abhishek Bachchan are behind this great initiative. The event was shared on the Facebook page of Kohli and the Indian skipper himself revealed that MS Dhoni is already planning the tactics for this game.
”Dhoni bhai” is very excited about the match. He is already planning and preparing tactics because we are not used to of playing football in big fields,” Kohli said.
Just like last year, All Stars Football Club (ASFC), representing Abhishek Bachchan’s charitable organization ‘Playing For Humanity’ will go against the All Heart Football Club (AHFC), which represents the Virat Kohli Foundation.
A similar match was played last year between both these teams and that included the likes of Mayank Dagar (goalkeeper), Manoj Tiwary, MS Dhoni, Manish Pandey, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Ashok Dinda, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan, Umesh Yadav, R Ashwin playing for Kohli’s team while the other side included Jignesh Antala (goalie), Aditya Kapoor, Shabir Ahluwalia, Ranbir Kapoor, Dino Morea, Shoojit Sircar, Kartik Aryan, Sachin Joshi, Arjun Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan and Raj Kundra.
Last year’s match ended in a 2-2 draw with Yuvraj Singh and KL Rahul scoring for Virat Kohli’s team. Unlike last year when Abhishek Bachchan led the All-Stars side before moving to the touchline from where he was giving inputs to his players, Ranbir will lead the Bollywood team this year.
Interestingly, All Heart FC vs All Star FC was first played in the year 2013 where the cricketers won the match by 4-3, however, Ranbir Kapoor was again the showstopper as he single-handedly gave his opposition a run for their money.
The money that is earned from this match will go to the charity run by Kohli and Bachchan.
It is good to see the cricketers and the Bollywood actors unite for a good cause. If they manage to do this on a regular basis, it will be good for the society and the respective charities.
