Watch: Virat Kohli reveals his favourite Bollywood movies

Two of the most popular things in India are, Bollywood and cricket. Bollywood stars and cricketers in India enjoy the stardom and fanbase that is second to nothing. In his recent Instagram live session with Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli, Indian football captain Sunil Chhetri asked him to name the bollywood movies that he could watch over and over again for endless laughs.

Kohli names his favourite movies

After getting married to popular bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, Virat’s connection with bollywood has only been made stronger. He shares good relationship with almost all new-gen bollywood actors and actresses. But when asked to name a movie that he could watch over and over again for endless laughs, he named the 1994 released Amir Khan and Salman Khan starrer Andhaz Apna Apna. “Uske uppar kuch nahi he” he added. Chettri also pointed out that it is one of his favourite movies also.

The film has emerged as a cult film over the years. The lexicon of the film has become part of every day language. Popular bollywood star Ranveer Singh who was watching this live, commented ‘hahaha Amar Prem 😂😂😂’ to point out that he too is a fan of this cult classic. Amar and Prem are names of the characters played by Aamir and Salman Khan in the film.

Further Chhetri asked him if he had seen the 1983 comic bollywood movie ‘Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro’. To which Kohli replied with a yes and he further mentioned the 2007 released Priyadarshan movie ‘Dhol’ as another movie that he would watch for endless laughs. This was rather a surprising choice by Virat, as the film had received mixed reviews when it got released. Ranveer Singh who was watching this session live commented ‘Dhol😂😂😂???’ in amazement over Virat’s choice. But Chettri said that he too is a fan of this movie.

The movie is a remake of the 1990 Malayalam film In Harihar Nagar written by Siddique-Lal which was already remade in Hindi in 1992 as Parda Hai Parda starring Chunky Pandey. Virat ended the conversation by saying a dialogue from Dhol.

Team India to resume training

As the spread of  Corona virus gets reduced in most of the cities, the Indian cricket board have asked it’s players to start training in the NCA to regain fitness. But Indian captain Virat Kohli and limited overs vice captain Rohit Sharma who are based in Mumbai may find it difficult to get to NCA owing to the government restrictions, as mumbai is one of the worst affected areas.

Both Chhetri and Kohli who are the captains of the national side would be itching to get themselves in the ground to showcase what they are best
