Exclusive! COVID-19 blocks Abhishek Bachchan, Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan’s goal kicks – Times of India

Just when some of Bollywood’s actors were looking for some fun and games, COVID-19 has come back with renewed vigour and the new restrictions all over have put a bucket of water on many plans. One such casualty is the All Stars Football Club football matches which were supposed to start next month- but now stand firmly cancelled for January 2021. The decision was taken just two days back and there’s a pall of disappointment across the industry regarding that. The matches were scheduled largely in Dubai, Bangalore, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

A source tells ETimes, “We were earnestly looking forward to Ranbir, Arjun and many others entertaining us in January. But now, God knows when it will happen. Film producer Bunty Walia (head honcho of GS Sports who helms the competition) had gone all out to make the stage ready but now, it seems it will be at least February or maybe even beyond that we shall witness football matches played by Bollywood celebs.”

Adds the source, “First, the practice matches were going to start.
Woh bhi nahin hua. But in a way, that’s good. If the actors had practised and then asked to cool their heels, it would have been a sheer waste of time and energy.”

Not a major reason but our source also tells us, “Recently, many film shoots which have started are not going exactly as per plan; they are moving at a pace slower than desired. Now, with most actors having resumed shooting, putting the dynamics of the football matches in place also was not proving to be an easy task. On the other hand however, some actors had kept dates of January aside for these matches. All this has led to a topsy-turvy situation but then in COVID-19 phase, every day has been a new day and you ought to take it as it comes.”

All Stars Football Club, whose main aim is to collect income for charity, has Abhishek Bachchan (captain), Ranbir Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Aditya Roy Kapur, Kartik Aaryan, Leander Paes, Dino Morea, Aparshakti Khurrana, Ishaan Khatter, Shashank Khaitan, Shabir Ahluwalia, Vivian Dsena, Karan Wahi, Sachiin Joshi and many others.
