Watch: Messi or Ronaldo? Rahul Gandhi clarifies whom he’d choose if he had a football team
Rahul Gandhi has revealed personal preferences and opinions on various topics, including football, films and the term 'Bharat' vs 'India'.
Congress MP Rahul Gandhi disclosed a variety of his personal preferences and stances on hot-button issues. He spoke candidly at The Conclave 2023, shedding light on everything from his football favourites to his views on the terminology 'Bharat' versus 'India'.
When quizzed about his football leanings, Rahul Gandhi exhibited a fondness for Ronaldo's kindness. However, according to him, Messi outshines CR7 in terms of football skills.
“I think Messi is actually a better footballer…if I was running a football team, I’d probably prefer Messi," he said.
He also expressed his inclination towards football over cricket, a stance that stood in stark contrast to the cricket-loving populace of India. Choosing between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma proved to be less of a challenge for the Congress MP. His response was impartial, stating he wasn't particularly engrossed in cricket, an admission he acknowledged could be unpopular.
Gandhi's preferences in films were equally intriguing. Finding it tough to choose between 'The Godfather' and 'The Dark Knight', he noted the depth in both films. As for his daily life choices like workouts and culinary preferences, he displayed a flexible approach.

"We all have many different frames," he suggested, drawing attention to the multi-dimensional nature of human identity.
His take on the long-standing debate between the names 'Bharat' and 'India' was well-balanced. He chose the phrase 'India that is Bharat', thereby fusing both terminologies.
