NEW DELHI: If it had not have been showbiz for Ranbir Kapoor, it would definitely have been football, says the actor, who is endorsing a campaign on the sport.

“Football is life for me and if not an actor, I would have loved to be a footballer. It teaches team work, determination and discipline apart from being such an exciting sport,” Ranbir said in a press statement.

The 29-year-old is the face of a new campaign by Pepsi. The campaign begins with a football-themed ad featuring Ranbir.

“I am thrilled that Pepsi is bringing the joy of football to India and am delighted to be a part of this campaign,” he added.

The television commercial, to go on air Saturday, will see a young football enthusiast giving a cheeky reply to Ranbir, who questions his passion for football. It ends with a delightful take of Ranbir displaying his football skills, with hilarious results.

“Football is gaining immense popularity in India and being a true youth soul-mate, Pepsi is proud to be associated with the sport,” said Deepika Warrier, executive director (Marketing), PepsiCo Beverages, India.

    It is more hard-work than acting buddy. And belonging to the Kapoor family will get you nowhere in football.
