B’wood with slushy charms of football

Mumbai: It seems the cricket team's failures have prompted Indians to train sights on other sports. CNN-IBN visits the sets of a film to check out soccer-mania.

The monsoons are far away and there isn't even a single woman in sight. So if you are imagining a wet saree sequence – surprise – Bollywood has succumbed to the slushy charms of football.

No, its not a preparation for Bollywood world cup but this is the set of Bhram.

DRIBBLING THE BALL: Dino gives some cool football tips on the sets of Bhram.

Just like the rain sequence in Hindi films is incomplete without the wet saree, any game of soccer on celluloid is no good without the rains.

Giving some football tips actor Dino Morea says, "Football is my favourite sport, what tips can I give you – passing the ball. Aim of the game is to win."

While actor Milind Soman says, “Keep your eyes on the balls. Score the goal. If it's raining it's more fun. "

But what if all that muck comes in the way?

"When you are playing the sport, you don't worry about the slush, " says Dino.
