Rahul Dravid’s transformation into ‘Indiranagar ka gunda’ in new ad surprises Virat Kohli among others

·3 min read

Rahul Dravid, the former India captain and batting legend, is known for his calm and composed demeanour. However, his angry side in the latest advertisement for a Bengaluru-based credit card bill payment platform has surprised his friends, fans, and fellow cricketers. India skipper Virat Kohli shared the ad in which Dravid is seen in his new role.

The commercial shows an infuriated Dravid stuck in a traffic jam and getting irritated with people around him. He is seen shouting, picking fights with fellow commuters, and smashing the side view mirror of another car. At one point, he creates a stir at the signal by calling himself "Indiranagar ka gunda" (villain of Indiranagar). The ad has gone viral and everyone is talking about it on social media.

Posting the commercial on Twitter, Kohli stated that he has never seen this side of Dravid.
