The former Indian captain Virat Kohli, while speaking on the RCB podcast with Mr. Nags recently, revealed a very interesting story that not many people know about.
Virat Kohli said that after the India Vs Sri Lanka second test match got over in Bengaluru earlier this year, he went to a very famous bakery in the city named “Thom’s Bakery” to buy something and he went into the bakery all alone without any security because he had a cap and a mask on and he was sure that nobody would recognize him.
But, when he got his stuff packed and had to go to the billing counter, then he thought people might recognize him because he didn’t have any cash with him and he had to pay the bill with his credit card which had his name printed on it.
So, when he gave his credit card to the guy on the billing counter, he had his security number on speed-dial to make sure if the guy at the counter recognizes him and then others recognize him as well, he can call his security in quickly and get out of there.
But, fortunately, the billing guy was so busy with his work that he just swiped the credit card without even looking at the name printed on it and the payment was done in a jiffy without anyone recognizing Virat Kohli at all.

It was great to experience some normalcy: Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli admitted that it was a great experience for him to just walk into a bakery like a normal person and buy stuff without any fuss because he generally can’t do that without a mask. And even with a mask, he was wary that he might get recognized because of his credit card, but it didn’t happen and he was really happy about it.
It was the same day that RCB had announced their new captain Faf du Plessis as well, in a grand unboxing event in Bengaluru.
