It is that time of the year when world’s best cricketers assemble in India to play for their franchises in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The 10th season of the T20 extravaganza is underway and for the next 45 days, hectic travelling and playing intense cricket will be a part of players’ lives. Besides this, the players will also have to keep up with certain commitments towards the franchise, under which they take part in commercials to keep the sponsors happy and also fulfil their contractual obligations. Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) stars Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers and Shane Watson recently took part in one such activity.
While shooting for a commercial for RCB recently, these four players and Sreenath Aravind had a good time. As the players were having fun, an important part of the crew that was shooting the commercial took us through the personality types of these players while on sets. Mohit Raina, from the DNA Network, opined that while Kohli is naturally the best actor of them all, Gayle is the best entertainer. He also labelled de Villiers as Mr. Serious and Watson, who according to him looked like a novice on the sets, as a beginner. Watch the video here:
The video finally ends with Gayle dancing to the beats of the ‘dhol’ and the cricketers posing for the photographs as the commercial shoot concludes. Though no details of the commercial have come out so far, you may stay tuned and keep checking this space for more details.
