Prabhudeva plans to launch Virat Kohli

The duo recently shot an ad in Bangkok and the director is toying with the idea of launching the cricketer.

Last week, the shoot of an ad in Bangkok saw superstars Virat Kohli and Prabhudheva get along like a house on fire. The camaraderie was there for all to see — Virat, who was initially reluctant to dance, was easily coaxed by Prabhu to try out some difficult steps. The result, we hear, was so positive that somewhere amid the fun, the idea of a movie launch for the star cricketer came up.

Prabhudeva (who, Ram Gopal Varma once proclaimed, is one of the three most successful Bollywood directors today after Rohit Shetty and Sajid Khan) is planning a launch for Virat after wrapping up his current commitments. He is busy with the launch of Kumar Taurani’s son, Girish, in a remake of his 2005 Telugu hit Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana with Shruti Haasan. The original film featured Siddharth and Trisha. Interestingly Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana had distinct shades of Salman Khan’s launch film, Maine Pyar Kiya. It will be interesting to see what Prabhudeva chooses to launch Virat.
