Celebrity Clasico 2017 Photos: Kohli-Dhoni overshadows Ranbir-AbhishekPosted By: Editorial Staff | October 16, 2017
In a country where Bollywood and Cricket are ultimate passions, there is nothing much too joy for the football fans out there. But Celebrity Clasico, which is a charity match, has something to offer to each and everyone out there.
Yes, the Celebrity Clasico which was able to grab the limelight last year returned this time once again. As its time for Diwali festivities in India, the thing which works as icing on the cake was seeing Indian leading cricketers battling with Bollywood stars and that too at the football pitch.
The thing which boosts people of all around is that all this activity is being held for the charity work as the money made through this activity will be used for various social works.
The high-profile match was held at the Andheri Sports Complex, Mumbai on Sunday 15th October.
To be very precise it was Kohli-Dhoni vs Abhishek-Ranbir, or we can say it was All-Heart FC vs All-Stars FC.
The Bollywood hunks, who love playing football, were single-handedly outshined by Virat Kohli’s XI.

All Hearts FC 6-3 All Stars FC
It was a comprehensive win for the All-Hearts and the one who needs to be most credited for all this is none other former Indian Cricket Team Captain MS Dhoni. It will be pertinent to mention here that, Dhoni, who is known for finishing off things with style, this time started things superbly as his first two goals in the first half made All Hearts dominant in the game.
The other goal scorers from cricketers were Srikanth, Jadhav, and Kohli. On the other hand, Bollywood celebs failed to make much of the impact on the game as Shabir Ahlulwalia added one for them in first half but it was too minute in front of their 3-goals on the board.
Later on in the game Ranbir Kapoor and Aadhar Jain got their names in the list of goal scorers but this much wasn’t enough to make Abhishek Bachchan’s team victorious.
MS Dhoni turned out a real pleasure for the football fans out there and even the social media sites were flooded over his brilliance. It will be pertinent to mention here that Ranchi-born star ended up as Man of the Match for his 2-goals.
