Sometimes life gives you way to become popular or earn in unique ways. Much to the same, the Indian National Cricket Team skipper Virat Kohli has got a doppelganger in the name of Saurabh Gade, who is enjoying a celeb life. He exactly looks the same as Virat Kohli, which has become a blessing for the youngster.
It took years for Virat Kohli to become the star in India. He worked a lot during his entire life before becoming the most-followed cricketer in the world. However, the youngster from Pune, Saurabh Gade is enjoying life without breaking a sweat.
Friends used to say I look like Virat Kohli – Saurabh Gade
Saurabh Gade has become the famous person in the state when a local Panchayat leader advertised saying that Virat Kohli is going to join the rally as a chief guest. However, it was not real Kohli, who is on the show, as the Panchayat leader brought to the rally.
However, the policemen intervened in the rally, as they felt that it would be a law and order issue in the society. So they asked the youngster to stay in a room, which got the security from the policemen.
“My friend in college used to say that I look like Kohli. One of my friends had taken a photo that was seen by one of the MLAs in Shirur. He called me and asked me to go to the sarpanch rally as he knew the candidate. After the rally, more hoarding came up, these had the candidate with the real Kohli. I sent the MLA’s team pictures but the quality wasn’t up to the mark. So the MLA photoshopped Kohli’s picture,” he told The Indian Express.
“There were lots of people gathered around me and the police came and said it could be law and order issue. They told me to go sit in the enclosure in the stands specifically reserved for physically disabled so that I can be a bit free. Two constables and an inspector too were there for my security. Later a top police officer called me over and asked for my picture!” Gade said.
However, Gade never met the Indian skipper. He would like to make his wish come true when the Indian team lock horns with South Africa in Pune.
