Bollywood celebrities are grabbing every chance to attend the matches in Qatar as FIFA World Cup fever continues to spread. The entire experience, according to Vivek Oberoi, of travelling with his son Vivaan to see Portugal play South Korea, was incredible.

“My son Vivaan is a huge fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and was sad that this World Cup might be Ronaldo’s last. I was super busy promoting [my latest film] Dharavi Bank and shooting my next assignment but I decided to take a small break and take him to see the match,” the 46-year-old tells us.

A request to summon Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi and his family was...

When asked which team he supports and which athlete he enjoys watching play, Oberoi responds, “I have no other choice but to support Portugal, my son is super emotional since it’s potentially Ronaldo’s last World Cup, he wants him to score loads of goals and lift the cup. His dad is his best buddy right now, and therefore I cannot cheer for any other team or player. It’s so funny to watch him take sides in the GOAT fan battles between Messi and Ronaldo. My beta is growing up!”

For those missing the FIFA World Cup action live, Oberoi says, “The World Cup only happens once in four years, so any opportunity to experience that fervour is one that should not be missed. The electric atmosphere, the global diaspora of fans coming together to celebrate the sport, being a part of the Mexican wave, these are truly memorable experiences. If given a chance, I’d love to watch a football match with (cricketer) Virat Kohli since he, too, is an avid football fan.”

The actor also discusses the state of Indian football at the moment and says he would like to see India compete in a future World Cup. “I would love to see my country excel in all sports. Sports are amazing for building character and channel the energy of the youth into productive pursuits and teach us very valuable life lessons. Unfortunately, we have been very focused only on cricket, but in the past decade I see a lot of promise in other sports,” he continues, “Leagues like kabaddi and soccer are inspiring so many. Icons like Sania Mirza, Mary Kom and Saina Nehwal are inspiring generations of girls to aspire for global recognition in sports. The most important thing is the mindset of Indian parents to place more value on sports in life.”

In a same vein, Oberoi wants to see Indian football catch up to cricket. “When I see football clubs all over the world, the loyalty they command and their infrastructure helps create world class athletes. We do have bastions like Bengal, Goa and Kerala that keep the football flag flying high, but I would love to see more encouragement for all other sports too!” he states.
