Mrunal Thakur reveals she was ‘madly in love’ with Virat Kohli – Details Inside

Mrunal Thakur revealed that she was once ‘madly in love’ with batsman Virat Kohli. She also mentioned her passion of cricket and dedicated it to her brother. She also recalls cheering for Team India from the stands while watching a live match with him.

Mrunal has been cast in the sports drama Jersey, which is a remake of the Telugu film of the same name, opposite Shahid Kapoor. He’ll be remembered as a former cricketer who, in his mid-30s, returns to the game to fulfil his son’s ambition.

In an interview with ETimes she said, “There was a time when I was madly in love with Virat Kohli. I started liking cricket because of my brother who’s a big fan. I have fond memories of watching a match live at a stadium with him around five years ago. I remember I was wearing a blue jersey and cheering for team India. Cut to today, I am part of a cricket-based film like Jersey. It is such a happy coincidence.”

‘Jersey’, directed by Gowtam Tinnanuri, was set to be released in August of last year but was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It will now be released in theatres this Diwali.

Mrunal is working on a number of projects. She will star with Paresh Rawal, Sharman Joshi, and Abhimanyu Dasani in Umesh Shukla’s comedy ‘Aankh Micholi’.

Mrunal also announced earlier this week on Instagram that she had joined the cast of the Hindi version of the Tamil film ‘Thadam’. In the film, which also stars actor Aditya Roy Kapur, she will portray a police officer.
