Indian skipper Virat Kohli gave a huge surprise to kids at a shelter home in Kolkata by dressing up as Santa Claus for them and gifting them presents. The Star Sports video shows Kohli donning the Santa get-up and meeting the children at the shelter home.
The kids, who fail to recognize him through his fake beard and plump red suit, are then treated to special gifts as per their wish list. Then the kids are asked if they would like to meet Kohli, to which they scream in delight “yes”.
This is followed by the star batter taking off his costume and revealing his identity leaving the kids totally baffled in awe. Kohli thus spent the rest of the time interacting with the children and celebrating the festivities of Christmas. His gesture earned tremendous praise on social media, who lauded his efforts at connecting with underprivileged kids.
