Football World Cup fever has reached Kerala as well. With less than 24 hours for the beautiful game to begin, Malayalam star Prithviraj Sukumaran has unveiled 'The Mallu Football anthem' in order to unite the football fans of the state.

"As the ball starts rolling in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, the whole world will be glued to the footballing action. Back home, here in God's Own Country, from the windy beaches of Calicut to the misty hills of the Nilgiris, supporters unite for the love of the beautiful game," Prithviraj said in a statement.

"This video is a tribute to us, the most passionate, die-hard fans of football. As football frenzy takes over Kerala, I'm happy to announce that Jamesh Kottakkal has a football-based feature film in his pipeline, titled, 'The Beautiful Game'. With the film's discussions entering the final stages, Jamesh has come up with a short film for all the crazy football fans," he added.
