Virat Kohli painting bought by a British entrepreneur

A rare painting of Indian skipper Virat Kohli was recently bought by a British entrepreneur and recipient of the Order of the British Empire (OBE), Poonam Gupta.

Poonam is a well-known cricket enthusiast and a connoisseur of cricket memorabilia. She paid a whopping 2.9 million GBP to buy the painting which covers ten years of Kohli’s journey in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

The painting is a creation of celebrity painter Sasha Jeffery and the bid for it was held during the charity dinner organized by the Virat Kohli Foundation in London.


“What I like about this young generation of Indian cricketers is that they are responsible and want to make difference on and off the field. I am very connected to the cause taken up by Virat. Slavery has no place in this world and we need to stand up and do our bit with however we can. I am glad Virat has come forward against this evil and by buying this magnificent piece of art created by my favourite artist Sasha Jaffrey, I tick two boxes. I take a rare masterpiece to my home and also help this noble cause in my own way,” Poonam said after winning the bid.
