The 2014 FIFA World Cup begins in Brazil on Thursday (June 12), and just like most football bans, even Bollywood celebrities can’t wait to get glued to their TV screens. While Riteish Deshmukh plans to catch up on the action with his wife Genelia D’souza, Ram Kapoor is pinning hopes on Brazil to clinch the cup.
Riteish Deshmukh is a cricket fan, but wife Genelia, who’s expecting their first baby, loves football.
“I’m a huge cricket fan and I have played a bit of football. My wife watches football and she keeps a track of every team and player,” Riteish, 35, said on the sets of “Dance India Dance Li’l Masters”.

Actress Esha Gupta is also a football fan and said: “Everyone knows that I love football. This time the matches are in Brazil and I hope this time they win.”
