Sports is not only a sports person's prerogative. Rather, it works as a therapy and a source of mental and physical fitness for many who might not play professionally. Our Bollywood actors are no different. While they are exceptional in their own profession, they also engage in some kind of sports and adventure activities to keep themselves motivated and healthy.
Here are some famous Bollywood personalities and their favourite sports which they like to engage in, when they are not working.
An ardent fan of the Barcelona FC, Ranbir lives and breathes football, and he was officially nominated as the Indian ambassador for the club. This love and passion for the sport have made him become the co-owner of the Mumbai City FC of the Indian Super League. Additionally, Ranbir is the vice-captain of the All Stars Football Club- a charity-driven sports team comprising Bollywood actors.
Junior Bachchan has always been known to love sports, particularly football (soccer). He has invested in and has been actively involved in the Chennaiyin Football Club of the Indian Super League.
