In general movies, the hero goals and wins the match â€“ regardless of how skillful the other team is. But, the football match played on Saturday was for real and real actors were playing against journalists. I talked about their preparation in my last post. The effort paid off and the film artistsâ€™ team won the game by 3-1. From the film artistsâ€™ team Badri Pangeni, Shankar BC and Suvash Meche scored one goal each and from the journalistâ€™s team Deependra Lama scored prenatally goal in the game.
