Celebs getting body parts insured is a trend that has caught our attention for ages now and for such exorbitant amounts too! 'Pretty Woman' star Julia Roberts had her teeth insured for $30 million. Our very own Jenny from the block, Jennifer Lopez had her booty insured for $27 million. The football stalwart, Lionel Messi got his legs insured for a whopping $750 million. I mean, can you even blame them?
The latest celeb to join this list is none other than our beloved captain, Virat Kohli!
Come to think of it, he could probably get any of his body parts insured. Like, his legs for he's quite a runner between the wickets or his wrists that have delivered some incredible shots. But looks like he's going for something that's far more precious - his beard. And for good measure too, since the Delhi boy has brought the beard back in style.
And, it looks like our suspicions are well founded if this recently leaked CCTV footage is to be believed.
While this is a mere speculation, in the video we can see these two suited gentlemen closely observing Virat's beard and clicking pictures of it. Towards the end, you can also see Virat signing what could be official paperwork for the same.
In fact, at one moment, you can even see one of them plucking his beard! Now, what's that about, captain?
To be honest, the assumption might just be true. I mean, sportsmen changing their looks, going clean-shaven or trying a new style is quite a common sight otherwise. But never have I seen captain Kohli change a thing about his beard, forget going clean-shave!
Only time and Virat will tell if the rumors are true. But as far as my gut feeling is concerned, I think #ViratInsuresBeard is going to trend everywhere for a while.
