First things first, this article is not in any way biased towards Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, neither does it delve into the "Is Ranveer better than the Khans?" question.

Sports fans actually were left pleasantly surprised after the Padmavati actor was seen acting as a ground reporter for Indian TV channel Ten Sports during the UEFA Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid in Cardiff on Saturday, June 3.

The battleground for the ultimate showdown ! @stadiumprincipality #Cardiff #UCLfinal @ten_sports

A further look into the Bajirao Mastani and Band Baaja Baaraat actor's Twitter handle shows us that he was actually live text commentating the game, not so frequently though but nevertheless the updates were not so less informative either!

Ranveer even flooded Instagram with photos of him and football legends like Steven Gerrard, Robert Pires and Luis Figo.

Can you feel it ?!?! ??⚽️⭐️? #UCLFanFest #UCLfinal

On Sunday, the 31-year-old also arrived in the commentary desk of the India vs Pakistan ICC Champions Trophy 2017 match in Edgbaston, Birmingham, to share the commentary table with the likes of Virender Sehwag and Sourav Ganguly!

Cricket fans were pleasantly surprised to witness Ranveer commentating alongside the witty Sehwag and the Bollywood star didn't do a very bad job either!

Talk of versatility and Ranveer is right there on the top.

Ranveer is currently shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati, alongside his girlfriend Deepika Padukone. Although the xXx: Return of Xander Cage was not present at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff during the UCL final, Deepika did post a nice photo on Instagram, making the football fans happy.
