"Everything about football excites us (ASFC members)! Playing induces adrenaline explains the basics of teamwork and its importance. As a viewer too it is the most involving game for audiences. Every minute every second of it has something exciting for both the players and audiences " Ranbir said.

The film industry keeps playing friendly sports matches off and on for noble causes.

"Sports in India is picking up and growing exponentially as a culture. We re lucky to be a part of this process and it makes us proud whenever we can contribute to this positive trend " added the actor who is training hard to beat his seasoned opponents who he believes have an "athletic edge" over his team.

There s an opportunity for fans of AFSC stars to join the celebrities in raising funds.

Jayant Rastogi CEO Magic Bus India Foundation is overwhelmed by the support pouring in from some of the well-known celebrities of Indian cinema.
