It's time for the FIFA World Cup and that means the entire world eats, sleeps and talks football 24/7. With how big sports are getting in India, it is no surprise that some of Bollywood's biggest celebrities are the most passionate football fans around. Which players, clubs and/or teams do they support?

Akshay Kumar has always been reported to be a huge Liverpool fan. We can expect Kumar to support Luis Suarez and Uruguay for certain matches in this World Cup, but the majority of his support will be directed towards Steven Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling who all play for Liverpool and England.

Kapoor is easily one of the biggest football fans in the Bollywood circle and has been a life-long FC Barcelona fan. As a supporter of Lionel Messi, expect Kapoor to be secretly rooting for Argentina in the 2014 World Cup.

Along with Esha Gupta, Salman Khan is a loud supporter of Arsenal. With the variety of nations the players on Arsenal represent, it's fair to assume that Khan will be rooting more for individual players than one specific nation in the 2014 World Cup.

Abhishek Bachchan is not only a fan of watching football, but also enjoys playing the sport whenever possible. Bachchan is a fan of Chelsea. Again, with Chelsea bringing in talent from around the world, Bachchan is expected to root for players - England, however, does have many of these EPL players on their World Cup roster.

Shah Rukh Khan is a prominent fan of Manchester United - so we can expect him to wholeheartedly support England in this year's World Cup. Keep in mind, the EPL is the most-watched international league in India.

Hrithik Roshan has been a fan of Real Madrid for some time now. Assuming the support stems from the Cristiano Ronaldo connection, Roshan might be rooting for Portugal in the 2014 World Cup. No shortage of options, however, as Real Madrid's top players represent England, Portugal, France and Spain.
