The UN named Craig as the global advocate for elimination of mines and explosive hazards during the International Happiness Day celebrations in March this year.

The James Bond star recently joined hands with Italian activist-diplomat Angelo Antonio Toriello, whose organisation, Humanicy, focusses on the role of humanities and culture in shaping diplomacy.

Toriello, who is organising the football match, was in Mumbai recently to oversee the arrangements with his India team for the fundraiser.
