Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen in world cricket, across all three formats of the game. In the last 5 years, he has worked extremely hard and taken his game to a legendary level in international cricket. Kohli has also emerged as the most loved Indian cricketer and one of the most loved and respected cricketers in the world.
Recently, a Scottish-Indian entrepreneur Poonam Gupta bought a painting by Sasha Jaffrey depicting Kohli’s Indian Premier League (IPL) journey over 10 years for a whopping ₹2.4 crore. Gupta bought the painting during a charity dinner organised by the Virat Kohli foundation.
Artist Sasha Jaffrey has collaborated with the likes of David Beckham, M S Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh for their charities and pet causes.
Ms. Gupta, CEO of Scotland-based company PG Papers, said, “What I like about this young generation of Indian cricketers is that they are responsible and want to make a difference on and off the field. I am very connected to the cause taken up by Virat.”
“Slavery has no place in this world and we need to stand up and do our bit. I am glad Virat has come forward against this evil, and by buying this magnificent piece of art created by my favourite artist Sacha Jafri, I tick two boxes. I take a rare masterpiece home and also help this noble cause in my own way,” Ms. Gupta said.
