Bollywood's very own 'Rockstar' Ranbir Kapoor recently met up with soccer legend Lionel Andres Messi in Barcelona. A pro football player himself, Ranbir Kapoor was excited to meet one of the best football players of his generation.
While the two spoke at length about their respective fields, Messi taught Ranbir a couple of tricks and other nuances of the game which the Bollywood star immediately picked up given his passion for football. The footballer was also impressed with Ranbir's knowledge and skill for the sport.
Says a source, "Ranbir is a huge Messi fan and would have loved to watch the friendly match in Kolkata, however given his prior commitments he couldn't make it. His shoot schedule for Anurag Basu's Barfee was pushed thanks to the rains and hence he could not be present for the match .While the rest of the industry was dying to meet the sports star, Ranbir received a special invite to meet Messi, which was a dream come true for the actor. As both the youth icons met, Messi personally autographed Ranbir's cap and the actor was obviously elated.
