Arjun Kapoor has been leaving cryptic clues on his social media sites over the last few days, teasing his fans with a big announcement. It has now been revealed that the actor is a co-owner of FC Pune City football club.
Following days of riddles, the Indian Super League franchise announced Kapoor will be joining the ranks of the club’s ownership with a statement. “FC Pune City welcomes Arjun Kapoor as the co- owner of the club. His involvement with the club will surely give an impetus to us to connect with a larger audience across the state as well as nationally” said FC Pune City CEO Gaurav Modwel as reported by Outlook India.
Kapoor, who is an avid football fan himself and is often seen sharing pictures of him playing with other actors such as Ranbir Kapoor and Ranveer Singh, is also excited about this new venture and hopes to grow the team and the talent. “What FC Pune City as a club is doing with football is tremendous and it seemed a natural fit for me to join them in their endeavour to develop a professional eco-system of football across Maharashtra. Our collective enthusiasm is in creating a special and aspirational football team”, said Kapoor.
Seems the mixing of Bollywood personalities and sports continues as Kapoor joins the likes of Abhishek Bachchan, Preity Zinta and ShahRukh Khan who are all owners of different sporting clubs in India.
