Kohli recently starred in an advertising campaign alongside teammate Rishabh Pant. The campaign was for a men’s face care product.

The Indian batsman shared a video of the campaign that shows him and Pant dancing and rapping.


Watch me and @RishabPant777 team up with @HimalayaMEN to take care of the one problem that keeps coming back. PIMPLES! #HimalayaMenPimplesGottaGo #LookingGoodAndLovingIt #VIRATxRISHABH

Hodge’s comment ignited a stir in India as many fans of Kohli have come to the defence of their ace batsman. Many fans have pointed to Australia’s recent transgressions such as the Sandpaper incident and Australian players who have danced for advertising campaigns as a response to Hodge’s criticism.
