Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli is unarguably the most marketable cricketer in the world and is often put in the same stratosphere as that of Roger Federer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Kohli, who presently is busy leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore side in the Indian Premier League, featured in a new TVC for American Tourister, where global football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was also spotted.
The advertisement starts with Cristiano Ronaldo checking-in at an airport while carrying his luxurious luggage bag. As Ronaldo was required to put his bag in the luggage checker, the footballer refused to leave it alone and sat inside the scanner with the bag itself. As People present at the airport started to click pictures of the act, another luggage scanner showed Kohli doing just the same.
The two sportsmen then waved at each other with a cheeky smile on their faces to conclude the ad. Here's the video of the TVC:
In a recent interview with the NDTV, Kohli himself had said that he sees himself more as a Cristiano Ronaldo than Lionel Messi, especially from the skill point of view.
Just recently, Chennai Super Kings star Dwayne Bravo had called Virat Kohli the Cristiano Ronaldo of cricket, recognising the RCB captain's passion for the game and the sort of hardwork he puts in.
"I actually asked Virat to talk to my brother personally about batting, about cricket. When I see Virat, I see Cristiano Ronaldo of cricket,” Bravo had said.
Even the Royal Challengers Bangalore coach Trent Woodhill had put Kohli in the same bracket as that of Federer, Ronaldo and Messi.
“He’s definitely fitter than he’s ever been. “(Kohli) is the most impressive sportsman I’ve had the pleasure to work with – in any sport. He’s in the same stratosphere as Roger Federer, Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi,” Woodhill had said while praising the 29-year-old.
