Watch: Kapil Dev plays cricket in a sparkly suit and skirt to 'act like Ranveer Singh', gives his '83 counterpart a tough run for his money
After the likes of Rahul Dravid, Neeraj Chopra and Venkatesh Prasad played uncharacteristic roles in the advertisement of a popular credit card bill payment application, Kapil Dev has joined the bandwagon. In the viral advertisement that hit social media on the day of the IPL 2021 finale, Kapil was seen in a pumped-up avatar as he mimicked the body language of Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh.
In the ad, Kapil is seen wearing colourful, unconventional clothes, similar to Ranveer's fashion choices, as he poses for a group picture, heads to the crease to bowl, and addresses the media at a conference. From wearing a pink colour cricket uniform to fielding and catching a ball in an animal print coat, he wears some daring clothes in the ad.
In the description of the ad, shared on YouTube, Kapil's fashion designer for the ad said that each outfit is a nod to a milestone of Kapil's life. These include ‘a tribute to the 4-games ‘hide & seek’ streak a 5-year-old Kapil Dev achieved in the summer of ‘64’, ‘an ode to resuming his hobby of gardening after the ‘83 world cup’ and more.
For the unversed, Ranveer will be seen playing the role of Kapil Dev in Kabir Khan's sports-biopic '83.
