After popular TV show Kumkum Bhagya, Mrunal Thakur soon made her transition into films with Tabrez Noorani’s Love Sonia and later went on to star in films like Super 30, Batla House and Toofaan. With cricketer Virat Kohli having such a huge fanbase, it’s no surprise that the Bollywood diva is one of Kohli’s fans.
In a recent interview with ETimes, Mrunal professed her passion and love for cricket. She admired Kohli and confessed she was once madly in love with the renowned cricket skipper. According to Mrunal Thakur , she first became interested in cricket because of her brother, who is a huge fan. She has also accompanied him to watch a live match at a stadium with him around five years ago. “I recall donning a blue shirt and rooting for Team India. Cut to today, I am part of a cricket-based film like Jersey. It’s a lovely coincidence,” Mrunal added.
Mrunal Thakur’s upcoming:
Mrunal’s upcoming film Jersey alongside Shahid Kapoor is the Hindi adaptation of the 2019 Telugu film Nani, which was a huge success in the Telugu cine industry. The movie revolves around a failed cricketer who decides to revive his cricketing career in his late 30’s despite everyone being skeptical of his ability to do so.
On the work front, Mrunal Thakur has some interesting projects in the pipeline which includes Shahid Kapoor-starrer Jersey, Ishaan Khatter’s Pippa and Aditya Roy Kapur’s Thadam remake.
