KL Rahul, the young Indian cricketer, must be quite happy as he is back in form and has been selected for the Sri Lankan series as well. Some time back, he was out of form and some of his haters went on to say that he is in the team just because of his friendship with Indian skipper Virat Kohli.
However, things have changed now and when he got the chance to open the batting with Rohit Sharma because of Shikhar Dhawan’s injury, Rahul left no stone unturned in using the opportunity to his advantage and played brilliantly as an opener.
Now Shikhar Dhawan is back in the team but Rohit Sharma is taking a break and it will be KL Rahul and Dhawan who will open the batting against Sri Lanka in the T20I series which will start on 5th January. The first match will be played at Barsapara Stadium, Guwahati.
KL Rahul is pretty active on social media, especially on Instagram, and recently he posted a photo in which he is seen with actress Athiya Shetty. In the photo, Rahul is seen holding an old fashioned phone while Athiya is laughing. The caption that Rahul wrote was, “Hello, Devi Prasad….?” which is a famous dialogue from the movie “Hera Pheri”. Suniel Shetty, Athiya’s father, played an important role in the flick along with Paresh Rawal and Akshay Kumar.
His caption has invited many funny comments, such as Mayank Agarwal said, “Rakh! Phone Rakh!! #Babubhaiya”, the same dialogue which was spoken by Paresh Rawal who played the character of Babu Bhaiya. Shikhar Dhawan also liked the post and wrote, “Good one bro”.
Here are some of the comments from the cricketers and Rahul’s reaction to them:
Earlier Suniel Shetty also reacted on the pic with laughing emojis. Athiya Shetty is the rumoured girlfriend of KL Rahul and both have been spotted together on various occasions; however, none of the duo has commented on their relationship so far.
