If not an actor, Id have been a footballer: Ranbir

If not an actor, Id have been a footballer: RanbirWhile the rest of the country watches IPL, the only thing on Ranbir Kapoors mind is football. Football is life for me. I think if I hadnt become an actor, I would have definitely taken up this sport professionally, says the 29-year-old actor, adding that he has even played the sport at the state level. Ive represented my school in the under-16 team football team, he says.The actor, who is currently shooting with former girlfriend Deepika Padukone for Ayan Mukherjees film, Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, in Manali, says that he is a huge fan of FC Barcelona. I dont like missing any of their matches. My favourite footballer is Lionel Messi. I got an opportunity to meet him last year, and it was a great experience, says Ranbir, who is quite eager to visit Brazil for the 2014 Soccer World Cup.Considering he is such a big fan of the sport, is he keen on acting in a film that involves the game? I really hope to do a film on football in future. I think sport is still an untapped genre in Indian cinema and there have been very few exciting sport films in Bollywood that have made a mark. Id definitely want to act in a film based on football if I get a suitable script, he says.
