Bollywood celebs Kareena Kapoor, Abhishek Bachchan, Anupam Kher, and Vicky Kaushal pay homage to the late Pele, a great football player who lost his fight with cancer at the age of 82. 

The stars expressed their sorrow at the legendary footballer's demise on their social media accounts. Abhishek was the first one among them to express his sorrow. 

Taking to Abishek Bachan’s Instagram post, he wrote, “As a child, my father introduced me to Pelé and his magic. And thus began a lifelong love for football. We had shelves filled with VHS tapes of his and the Brazilian team’s matches. I would religiously watch them with my father. A magician we’ve all been blessed to witness. A few years ago, whilst visiting India I somehow managed to get an autographed jersey of his. It has pride of placement in my office. Thank you, sir, for teaching us about Joga bonito and being such a hero and idol to billions. Rest in Peace to the greatest! @pele.”

Anupam Kher, the star of Special 25, too expressed his condolences on Twitter. He wrote, “Dearest Pele! You and your game, and the way you played it, will always be #GameChanger for millions of people all over the world. Whether they played football or not. Thank you for your inspiring life. #RipLegend #OmShanti #Pele.”

Kareena Kapoor also posted an old picture of King Pele with the word “King” on her Instagram story.

Likewise, Katreena Kaif’s husband and Masaan actor Vicky Kaushal also paid his homage on Instagram sharing a photo of Pele and Maradona along with the message, ““When Maradona died, Pele said he hopes someday he'll ‘play ball with Maradona in the sky’. Today is that day. Rest in peace."
