Abhishek Bachchan and Ranbir Kapoor were all set to play an International football match in Dubai for charity. But, unfortunately the match organized by Bunty Walia at the Al Wasl stadium has been cancelled.
Both the actors were about to reach Dubai by 31st Jan, but at the last moment it was called off because of Sohail Khan.
It is learnt that when Sohail came to know about the match he was annoyed, as his team, Mumbai Heroes, was actually going to play their second CCL (Celebrity Cricket League) match at the same venue the very next day (February 1).
If the sources are to be believed, Sohail straight away sent out a clear message to Bunty that he should cancel the match as some of the players (Aditya Roy Kapur, Shabbir Ahluwalia, Samir Kocchar) from the cricket team are also in the football team.
The source said, “There was a lot of buzz around the match because this would have been the first time Dubai saw Ranbir and Abhishek in action, live, on a football ground.”
“Last time, Sonu Sood injured his leg. God forbid, if anything had happened to Aditya, Shabbir or Samir on the football field, what would have happened to Sohail’s league match? Even otherwise, the trio would not have been able to give their 100 per cent a day after a strenuous 90-minute football match,” added the source.
Bunty confirmed the news and said, “We have postponed our football match in Dubai. It doesn’t make sense to clash with members of your own fraternity.”
