Ranbir Kapoor meets his sports idol Messi

When the Rockstar actor met sports star Lionel Andres Messi, the two chatted endlessly on football and films

There is a downside to being a film star. Every move is scrutinised by the media and you are an easy target for gossip. But then there are lots of perks to stardom, and one of it is having quick access to most things. Recently Argentinian footballer Lionel Andrés Messi was in India, to play a match in Kolkata. And the sports star sent out a special invite to our very own Rockstar, Ranbir Kapoor, to come meet him. Unfortunatel,y the actor was filming for Anurag Basu’s Barfee so he could not make the date. A source close to the actor confirms that “Ranbir did receive a special invite to meet Messi, which was a dream come true. He would have loved to watch the match in Kolkata; however, given his prior commitments, he couldn’t make it. His shoot schedule for Barfee was pushed back thanks to the rains and hence he could not be present for the match.” But Ranbir was fortunate enough to meet the football legend at Barcelona not too long after that. About that encounter, the source reveals, “Messi personally autographed Ranbir’s cap and they spoke at length about their respective fields. Messi also taught Ranbir a couple of tricks of the game, which he immediately mastered, given his love for football.” And that was it. The Bollywood superstar’s day was made. See, sometimes our stars also get star-struck!
