IPL 2024: Virat Kohli Sends Shockwaves by Requesting Fans to Stop Addressing Him as ‘King’

IPL 2024 witnessed a grand unveiling event at the iconic Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, where the Royal Challengers Bangalore (now Bengaluru) presented a new look for the upcoming season.

Among the excitement of new logos and jerseys, the team’s star player, Virat Kohli, took center stage with an unexpected request that sent shockwaves through the cricketing world.

As the event reached its peak, the lively host, Danish Sait, couldn’t resist teasing Kohli with the famous nickname, “How is the King feeling?” The crowd erupted in cheers, but little did they know their hero had something different in mind.

In a moment that will stay life-long in fans’ memories, Kohli, with his usual humility, addressed the sea of supporters. “It’s great to be back again,” he began, but then came the unexpected twist. “But there’s something I need to say,” he continued, “Please, stop calling me that word King. It’s embarrassing. Just call me Virat.”

The declaration left the audience in stunned silence, catching a rush of speculation and debate. Was this a strategic move to lighten the burden of expectations? Or perhaps a genuine request to connect with fans on a more personal level?

The origins of the “King Kohli” nickname remain unclear. While the media and commentators may have boosted its popularity, could it have been the passionate admiration of a single fan that started its rise?

With excitement building for IPL 2024, one thing is certain: Virat Kohli’s appeal has added an interesting twist to an already captivating season. Will fans honor his request, or will “King Kohli” keep his strong position in the hearts of cricket fans worldwide?
