During the India vs Sri Lanka World Cup 2023 match at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, an amusing interaction between Indian cricketer Virat Kohli and the crowd unfolded. As the crowd began teasingly chanting “Sara Sara” in reference to Sara Tendulkar, the daughter of cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, Kohli gestured towards his teammate Shubman Gill, urging the crowd to chant “Shubman Shubman” instead.
The crowd’s chant appeared to be rooted in ongoing rumors surrounding a romantic link between Shubman Gill and Sara Tendulkar, which stirred up the playful reaction from the audience. This chant went as: “Hamari Bhabhi Kaisi Ho, Sara Bhabhi Jaisi Ho”, cheekily alluding to the alleged romantic involvement between Gill and Sara Tendulkar.
The video capturing this playful interaction showed Kohli raising his hands and encouraging the crowd to redirect their chants towards supporting Shubman Gill, which not only went viral but also displayed a light-hearted camaraderie among the players amidst the competitive cricket match atmosphere.
