After setting records in cricket, Virat Kohli, is planning to enter Bollywood.  

The cricketer, who has a huge fan following, especially women, has now new plans apart from cricket. The cricketer might make his Bollywood debut, that too with none other choreographer-actor-director Prabhu Deva.

India is a country where Bollywood and cricket rules on the heart of people and is followed by the whole country like a religion. There have been many instances when cricketer turned to Bollywood, and the latest to join the league is Virat.

He worked with the director for the first time for an ad shoot last week in Bangkok. During the ad shoot the duo established great chemistry, and now there is buzz that the cricketer might soon be launched on silver screen by Prabhu.

It is reported that Kohli was initially not willing to do some complicated dance steps for the ad but Prabhu helped him, which turned out good. Impressed by his acting in the ad, Prabhu reportedly decided to launch him in Bollywood.

And if rumours are to be believed, Kohli seems to be keen to work with Prabhu for the proposed Bollywood film. According to reports, Prabhu will take up the film with the cricketer after completing his current projects.

Neither the director nor the cricketer has confirmed the news but it will be interesting to see them work together, as they are successful in their respective professions.  

Earlier, Indian cricketers Vinod Kambli, Ajay Jadeja and Anil Kumble had tried their luck in Bollywood, but failed to make it big.
