The craze of cricket in India is indescribable. From a 10-year-old kid to an 80-year-old elder, the game and players enjoy a mass and diverse fan following. Players are treated as gods and fans celebrate their favourite player’s success as their own. It happened so many times in the past that the crowd suddenly comes alive when their favourite cricketer arrives at the crease.
Virat Kohli shares a massive fan following and people get wild when they see him on the ground. Whether the former RCB captain is fielding or batting, when the camera focuses on Virat, the whole stadium erupts. That’s what happened during the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians in IPL 2022.
However, in this case, the crowd that was going wild was not present at the ground. In a video that has gone viral, fans inside the theatre can be seen going bonkers after the arrival of Kohli at the crease. People can be seen screaming and dancing with joy as Kohli played his first delivery. The video is reportedly from a theatre in Andhra Pradesh.

Royal Challengers Bangalore on Saturday registered a comfortable win against 5-time champion Mumbai Indians. Virat Kohli played a decisive knock of 48 and gave support to Anuj Rawat, who was the star of the match. Notably, Kohli was once again indulged in a controversy as the former RCB skipper was given out LBW by the third umpire despite the replays showing a clear deviation from the bat.
