Rahul Dravid, the former India captain, has been the epitome of a gentleman in cricket. During his playing days, he was known for his perfect technique and cool temperament.
But in a new advertisement, the 48-year-old can be seen unleashing his road rage. Stuck in a traffic jam, Dravid loses his cool and yells at other commuters.
After the advertisement surfaced online, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli was taken aback on witnessing Dravid’s whole new avatar.
“Never seen this side of Rahul bhai,” Kohli wrote.

CRED, which deals in credit cards payments, has rolled out its first ad film for this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) featuring Dravid and actor Jim Sarbh. This is the first of six films for this year’s tournament.
The campaign was written and conceptualised by Tanmay Bhat, Devaiah Bopanna, Puneet Chadha, Nupur Pai, Vishal Dayama and executed by DDB Mudra and 22Feet Tribal Worldwide.
Rahul Dravid is one of the nicest, politest people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. In the brief few hours, he taught me how to correct my batting stance (I do all my cardio while batting in the nets), was kind enough to share the most fascinating cricketing insights –
