Abhishek Bachchan is in a happy space. While the actor is gearing up for his next film HAPPY NEW YEAR, he is also gung ho about the upcoming football league, where he co-owns the Chennai team along with Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.


Not only Mahendra Singh Dhoni, but cricketers like Virat Kohli, Saurav Ganguly and ‘God of Indian Cricket' Sachin Tendulkar too have been co-owners of various teams in the league, apart from Bollywood celebs like Ranbir Kapoor, John Abraham, Parineeti Chopra, Hrithik Roshan among others.

Probe Abhishek whether it is a deliberate move to involve celebrities so as to attract more audience and he reveals, “Having celebrities on board is not going to hurt. If we can become a medium to get more attention for the sport, then I am more than happy to do that. At the end sport wins.”

He further adds, “By celebrities I just don't mean Bollywood actors but even Cricketers like Saurav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar, who have been my sporting idols. I absolutely love them.”

Ask him about his Chennaiyin FC co-owner Mahendra Singh Dhoni and he admits, “Mahi is one of my favourite sportsmen. He is a human being I have huge amount of respect for. I first met him on the sets of DOSTANA. He used to hang out with John and me. Mahi is an exemplary human being and a great leader.”
