Bollywood superstar Ranveer Singh was on the other end of the typical ‘fanboy’ moment for a change, when he met Arsenal’s superstar midfielder Mesut Ozil.
The footballer responded to his posts by inviting him to Arsenal’s Emirates stadium again to celebrate a victory when the Gunners get off and running after the two-nil loss to Manchester City in the first game of the season.
Mesut Ozil posted an Instagram status of his own, inviting the actor, he also started following Ranveer Singh. This could spark a new bromance relationship between two youth icons.

The renowned midfielder is among football’s most talented players, having won several titles including the La Liga (Spanish top-flight football league) title with Real Madrid alongside former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.
The decorated midfielder won the FIFA World Cup with Germany in 2014 and was awarded the title of ‘Player of the Year 2016’ with the club, Arsenal. Ozil is also 5-time German national player of the year.
The Arsenal ‘number 10’ is one of the most followed footballers in the world with over 31 million compared to Ranveer Singh’s 9.6 million.
Ozil was also at the centre of news attention recently, after he called in retirement from international football after citing racism by the German football federation.
Ranveer Singh met Ozil when he visited Arsenal football club’s home ground, Emirates Stadium in London for the Arsenal vs Manchester City match last Sunday.
Ranveer is an avid follower of Arsenal and actively posts updates and pictures related to his favourite club. Ozil, who has been a fan-favourite at Arsenal after his club-record breaking 42.5 million euros move in 2014 also acknowledged Ranveer Singh’s Instagram post with his picture alongside the footballer.
The Bollywood superstar, who has millions of die-hard fans across India realised what it feels like to be a fanboy.
