They share some unknown football memories and indulge fans to a witty conversation. Ranveer talks about how he fell in love with the Premier league, his favourite players, and the Arsenal vs Chelsea rivalry. The duo also face-off in a Chelsea vs Arsenal trivia challenge. Guess who emerges as a winner?
Ranveer Singh, Premier League Ambassador, India shares his memories on how he became an Arsenal fan, “It’s an emotional moment (in a quirky manner)! Around the turn of the century, India started to telecast LIVE Premier League matches, and we were immediately hooked. To be very honest, I have not spoken about this before – it was around then that I was most attracted to two teams – Arsenal and Chelsea. In the years to follow on the advent of Premier League Football in India, Arsenal started playing some really insane football. Two clinchers for me – In school I was in red house, so when I had a choice between blue and red, I prefer wearing Red. Second thing, I wanted to be a guy like Thiery Henry – I wanted to be someone whose every pore was exuding swagger!”
This and lots more will be revealed on 23rd April at 10PM on Star Sports 1 and Disney+ Hotstar.
