The Ram Mandir Pran Pratishtha ceremony in Ayodhya was extended an invitation to Indian cricketer Virat Kohli and his spouse Anushka Sharma, but they ultimately chose not to attend. On the other hand, fans flocked to a Kohli lookalike to take selfies, and a video of the whole thing went viral on social media. The video demonstrated how fans were ecstatic to see the person who appeared to be a close replica of Virat Kohli, and how many people had gathered around him to meet and take selfies.
Meanwhile, Kohli has pulled out of the first two Tests against England due to personal reasons which “demand his presence and undivided attention”, the BCCI said on Monday. The five-match series begins in Hyderabad on January 25.
