India captain Virat Kohli, who is an advertiser’s dream was spotted at a Tissot function where India’s rising stars from other sports (Not Cricket) were present. While Kohli was in the podium, tennis star Karman Kaur Thandi came up for a selfie. The tennis star, who is taller than Kohli, put the cricketer in distress as Kohli tried to match her height for the perfect picture and got trolled on social media for trying to do it.
The event was organised by Tissot, a brand the cricketer endorses. The event took place in a plush five-star hotel in Bandra. Other sports stars who graced the occasion were basketballer Satnam Singh, Aadil Bedi, Shivani Kataria, Sachika Kumar Ingale, Jehan Daruwala, Pinky Rani and Manoj Kumar.
Here is how Kohli faced the heat on social media for his attempt to look tall.
Meanwhile, Kohli has led India to an emphatic win against the touring Windies side in the first Test at Rajkot. India beat West Indies by an innings and 272 runs. Kohli scored his 24th Test ton in the Test, where debutant Prithvi Shaw too slammed a record-breaking maiden hundred. India takes on West Indies in the second Test, starting October 12 in Hyderabad.
