Ranveer has been a sports fanatic and he has also featured in films like 83, in which he portrayed 1983 World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev.

Speaking in an interview, Ranveer said that he became a fan of Arsenal in their glory days but the team has dwindled down over the years. He said that the was very disappointed at a point when they were not performing. However, he stayed true to the club in their low time.

“There are several instances that I felt so deflated. I was so shattered at one point that I even considered divorcing Arsenal until my loyalty came in the way. Once you pick a football club, it’s like marriage; you only do it once. You don’t ever think you are going to change or jump ship. But it did cross my mind. That’s how low I got at one point about Arsenal football club and their fortunes in the Premier League,” said Ranveer as quoted by NDTV.

The Bollywood star, however, is happy that the club has bounced back. “It’s been a good season, and I think the prospects of Arsenal achieving top four is on. I am thrilled to see Arsenal performing so well, and I wish best for the club,” he added.

Arsenal are placed fourth in the Premier League points table, with 51 points in 26 games as compared to Manchester United, who have 50 points in 29 games.

Ranveer Singh spoke on the GOAT debate between Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi and gave a very diplomatic answer which made sense as well. “I don’t think there is anything to choose between them. There is no 1 greatest of all time (GOAT). There is always the GOAT conversation and these two are in the conversation and I think it’s a huge privilege for me and this entire generation to have witnessed their entire career from the very start.”
