Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - FRONT PAGE - HTC

Bol­ly­wood came to­gether for a celeb foot­ball match against politi­cians in Delhi on Sun­day. The aim was to raise funds and aware­ness about the two flag­ship ini­tia­tives — the ‘lean In­dia cam­paign and a fe­male em­pow­er­ment pro­gramme — by PM Naren­dra Modi.

Ac­tor Ran­bir Kapoor, who cap­tained the team briefly, scored five goals in the game. Dino Morea scored a brace, while ac­tors Shab­bir Ah­luwalia, Karan Wahi and Sachin Joshi scored a goal each, as they thrashed the Parliamentarians by 10-0. Yoga guru Baba Ramdev, too, made a spe­cial ap­pear­ance on the pitch to raise aware­ness.
