Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli is gracing the magazine cover of GQ India’s latest issue. The 29-year-old shared the picture of the August’18 edition on his Instagram handle, writing, “No guts -No glory-No story! On stands tomorrow ✌🏻 @gqindia”. While the tagline of the issue reads, ‘The Man Behind The Hype’, our attention remained on Virat Kohli’s big bushy well-maintained beard. Like always, it hogs all the limelight. Even his gelled spike hairstyle is so good to look at, along with his strong beard game. Thank you, Aalim Hakim.
Having the biggest name in the world cricket as their cover boy, GQ India is simply thrilled. They write, “India's biggest celebrity is our #AUGUST2018 Cover Star! Grab your copy (print & digital) of the issue now!” Their excitement is understandable as not every day you get to have THE VIRAT KOHLI as a guest for an edition’s cover story. Giving more details about the photo shoot in their description, the man behind the lens is Errikos Andreou working alongside DEU: Creative Management. Interestingly, the fashion photographer recently is in the news for doing a photo shoot with Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone for the Filmfare magazine.
