Kolkata:

Bollywood star Ranbir Kapoor and film maker Anurag Basu will be present at the Salt Lake stadium on September 2 to witness Argentine soccer star Lionel Messi in action.

"I would be coming to Kolkata on Aug 31 because I am the biggest fan of Messi. So me and Dada (Anurag Basu) made a plan long back that we would come and see Messi in action. So really looking forward to that. I hope Messi's visit would do something good to Indian sports," Ranbir told reporters on Friday night.

Ranbir was interacting with media regarding his upcoming movie 'Barfee' directed by Basu. Co-actors Priyanka Chopra and Ileana D'Cruz were also present at the program.

Soccer superstar Messi will make his debut as full-time Argentine captain but striker Carlos Tevez has been omitted from a star-studded Argentina team that will take on Venezuela in the official FIFA international friendly match.

"I have tied up with Barcelona football club. Messi plays for that team, so I had an opportunity to meet him then. But this time Messi is coming as an Argentine player, so I will be present in the stadium just as a football fan," said Ranbir.

"I have already booked tickets for the Messi match. Last time during Diego Forlan's visit to Kolkata I wanted to come but couldn't," said Basu.
