Former England football captain David Beckham arrived in India to fulfil his commitments as the UNICEF Goodwill ambassador. After spending time with kids in Ahmedabad, Beckham landed in Mumbai where he attended the thrilling India vs New Zealand match and interacted with the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli.
On Wednesday, Beckham also visited the Meta office in Mumbai where he interacted with a crowd through a session moderated by actor Sara Ali Khan. Small clips from the session are doing the rounds and Sara seems to have played the role of interviewer quite well. A video shows Sara greeting Beckham with a wide grin while saying `Welcome to India`.

During a recent encounter at a META event, Sara was seen sharing conversations with football icon David Beckham. The conversation, characterized by depth and intellectual exchange, showcased Sara`s ability and talent to hold her ground even in the presence of a global sports legend. The meeting, though brief, left an indelible mark on Sara and Beckham.
it`s insane how #SaraAliKhan can converse soo eloquently, both in English and Hindi. She got this confident, graceful, super intellectual and impactful demeanour, which always brings her out as a much better and wiser person than all others in the race. pic.twitter.com/wtXGx4KQMb

Meanwhile, Beckham was hosted for dinner by actor Sonam Kapoor and her husband Anand Ahuja at their Mumbai home. The dinner was also attended by the likes of Arjun Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor, Shanaya Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Malaika Arora, Karisma Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, among others.
For Arjun Kapoor it was a childhood dream come true. Sharing a picture of him and Malaika Arora posing with Beckham, he wrote, “A night to remember…
To meet someone u have admired from afar for so many years & to be able to talk face to face with him about his new life in Miami, football, India, travel, his kids, philanthropy & everything else I could squeeze into a 15 minute dinner table chat. Grateful to have met @davidbeckham & completely in awe of his genuine sincerity towards spending time with all of us & being kind enough to allow every fan boy/girl in that room to feel elated to get a picture & time with him…
Thank You @sonamkapoor & @anandahuja for fulfilling this childhood dream of mine !!!”
Meanwhile, Sonam Kapoor`s brother and actor Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor took to social media to share a picture with the footballer. He said that he was the only one at the party to have watched all of Beckham`s matches. “Since I was probably the only person at that party that has actually watched every game beckhams played and passionately followed his career at united and beyond I felt like I should take a photo.. I’m now sharing it with the rest of the world since everyone else is sharing theirs”.
