Star Indian all-rounder Krunal Pandya has compared Indian skipper Virat Kohli with the famous Bollywood character Rowdy Rathore. Speaking on a reality TV show, Krunal also gave famous Bollywood titles to various other cricketers representing Team India.
Pandya made a grand entrance on the show shaking a leg on the song Bala from ‘Housefull 4’. He delivered his favourite dialogue from the movie ‘Gangs of Wasseypur 2’.
When asked about his favourite actor, Krunal mentioned that he finds a lot of similarities between himself and Ajay Devgn which is why the veteran is the Baroda-based player’s most-liked Bollywood actor.
Krunal Pandya Gives Bollywood Titles to Indian Cricketers Including Virat Kohli:
In a rapid-fire question and answer round, host Karan Wahi asked him to assign a cricketer to a Bollywood celebrity and here’s how Krunal replied to the questions: “Chulbul Pandey is Kedar Jadhav, Mogambo is Shikhar Dhawan, Rowdy Rathore is Virat Kohli and Jai Veeru are Krunal and Hardik,” as quoted by mid-day.
Krunal is away from team India after missing out on a place in the T20I squad. Pandya will look to perform well in this year’s IPL to book a place in the Indian squad for the ICC T20 World Cup later this year in Australia.
He faces stiff competition from Ravindra Jadeja and Washington Sundar for the spin-bowling all-rounder’s spot in the Indian side.
