The Happy New Year actor has been invited to be part of an interreligious match for peace
Abhishek Bachchan, whose kabaddi team, Jaipur Pink Panthers, recently won the Pro Kabaddi League Championship couldn’t spend much time celebrating with his teammates. The Paa actor had to leave for Rome on Tuesday to be a part of an interreligious peace match, a brain child of Pope Francis.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s hubby whose passion for sports is well known was invited by former Inter Milan and Argentina captain Javier Zanetti. Interestingly, Abhi is the only Indian actor invited for this special match.
The football match will be held at Rome’s Olympic stadium and will have celebrity players participate from all over the world, the intention being to promote the Pope’s message of world peace. Jr Bachchan will represent his Chennai Titans (ISL) team in the Italian capital.
