You love him on stage and you love the other on the pitch. But when Prabhu Deva- King of Dancers on stage invites cricketer Virat Kohli to shake a leg with him on stage, you know it'll be a brilliant combination.
The two apparently bonded famously over an ad shoot they had to be at together at Bangkok. During the shoot, which was for a shoe brand, the actor-turned-director asked Virat, who is seen as the chocolate boy of cricket and ads, to dance to some complicated moves, the latter was reluctant, but soon got into the groove. The two had such good fun hanging out and working together that the idea of making a movie emerged soon.
If sources are to be believed, Virat's pretty open to the idea. Considering his fan following and the response he gets to the products he endorses, watching Kohli on-screen doesn't seem to be a bad idea.
With three projects already in the pipeline for Prabhu Deva along with the launch of Kumar Taurani's son Girish opposite Shruti Haasan, it looks like Virat will have to wait for a bit should any plans be confirmed.
Can't help but add- we're looking forward to see the start cricketer on screen!
