Virat Kohli has had a dream start to the year 2023. The Indian cricketer went on to score his 73rd and 74th international century which came against Sri Lanka earlier this month. Amid his brilliant run-of-form on the field, an old video of the former India captain has resurfaced now.


Virat Kohli had featured in an ad promotional video of Fastrack in 2011, which also had Bollywood actress and celebrity Genelia D’Souza in it. In the commercial, Virat Kohli played the role of a pilot and was later banned by the Indian Ministry of Information and Broadcasting for adult content.  In the video, Genelia who imitated as the ‘hot air hostess’ entices the cricketer while the plane is in the air, thus causing controversy among the aviation companies.

The video with some adult content was later removed and banned. The authorities objectified risking passengers’ life for humour purpose, thus leading it to be banned.


Talking more about Virat Kohli, the Indian cricketer has failed to score big with the bat against New Zealand in the ongoing ODI series. While he got bowled by Mitchell Santner at the score of 8 in the first ODI, he could only score 11 runs in the second ODI before falling off Mitchell Santner once again.
