Bollywood superstar Hrithik Roshan is the latest movie star after Ranbir Kapoor, Abhishek Bachhan and John Abraham to associate himself with the Indian Super League (also known as the ISL). The actor is the co-owner of FC Pune City.

“I’m honoured to be associated with ISL, which represents India’s first effort at professional football. It is definitely the next big sporting brand in our country and will give young talent a solid platform. I hope my partnership with FC Pune City adds further strength to the team,” Hrithik said after the announcement of the partnership.

Gaurav Modwel, CEO of the team, said Hrithik’s star power will help them connect with the youth and help draw viewership across categories.

“We are extremely pleased to have Hrithik Roshan as a co-owner of FC Pune City. He is a youth icon and his association with FC Pune City will give us a huge impetus in connecting with the youth. With the ISL, we want to make football a household name,” he said.

Ranbir is the co-owner of Mumbai City FC, Abhishek has involved his name with Chennaiyin FC and John has leant his image to NorthEast United FC.

Rajesh Wadhawan Group is the other promoter of the team.

  • isl is growing bigger with each passing day.I will b there tomorrow at salt lake stadium for the opening ceremony.I hv heard sir ranbir,pc is going to perform and even hro could make an appearance.cant wait for tomorrow

  • That’s great news….am from pune…And I am big Fan of Hrithik…So IT will double treat for me..Watching Football and watching HR while chearing and Dancing for FC pune team…Best of luck

  • Salman wanted to associate with pune city but could’nt due to his priorities with suzuki n thumsup which were conflicting with the league sponsors HERO

  • Indicine why you dont tell about that first salman was co-owner of fc pune city then he get some financial problem from his add company like thums up and suzuki so he quit from isl salman also tweeted about this

  • That is a big news because for the first time Hrithik is being associated in a Sports League . Actually i am not a huge fan of Football but maybe i will see ISL . I am not sure if i will watch every match but i will watch some of them . ISL can become popular like the Pro Kabaddi League which was absolutely brilliant . It is good to see John, Ranbir, Abhishek and Hrithik for extending their support for Football . I think after ISL Football can become more popular in India .

  • That means Salman & Hrithik are partners in ownership of FcPune City now as Salman is already one of the co owners of Pune.

    It will be fun watching two superstars cheering for same team together.

  • Happy Birthday to the MegaStar and the Shahenshah of Bollywood Mr. Amitabh Bachchan . Please post an article on this great actor and human being . 72 Years and 45 Years in the Industry but still going strong . # 72 Years Young . # Respect .

  • We need good number of international star players to associate with ISL to take football to next level in India…Film stars can’t bring the enthusiasm in fans,only players can…I am not sure if more than 12-15 international players are participating…There is no clear indication of which team to support for….

    However good to see Hrithik associating with Pune..So my fav team will be Pune….

  • @Rahul — Cost of 1 IPL team is bigger than 1 ISL team….SRK wanted to buy KOLKATA but when he didn’t got it….he refused.

  • BUT in ISL there are no key foriegn players like messi,ronaldo, aguero, klose,muller,ozil,so on..where we find in IPL where there are key and important players..SO ISL will be ok and not a big hit like IPL matches…

  • dont compare ISL with IPL…because IPL is a big game with lot of star players…but ISL there are no messi,ozil,ronaldo,klose,rooney,muller and one 1 ipl team is costlier than isl team..
