It doesn’t matter how time changes. But Bengal and Bengalis will always love football, no matter what.
Whenever there is an East-Bengal v/s Mohun Bagan match, the game turns into a battlefield with warriors ready to slaughter each other. It seems the footballers are ready to do anything just to entertain their spectators. Even para football is no less than a gladiators’ clash. Celebrities like Shoojit Sircar, Upal Sengupta, and Babul Supriyo are football fanatics. Even though their busy schedules don’t allow them to meet regularly but whenever they do, they enjoy the time playing football.
“Football is my lifeline,” said ‘October’ maker Shoojit. Babul Supriyo too, like a true-blood Bengali, loves the game. “By the time I entered my teenage years. I was already bitten by the football bug,” he remembered.
Upal has already flown to Russia to catch the FIFA World Cup.
