Right now cricket has pretty much edged out the other sports in the subcontinent. But back in the 70s it'd be 55-45 in favour of football. However the picture was totally different in case of West Bengal, where it was 80-20 in favour of football, with the local teams being the most discussed topics in public gatherings.

And although cricket is far more popular now compared to football, I think the fan base for football has also increased since they started live broadcasting of the premier leagues from around the world.
