Apart from being a star cricketer, Virat Kohli is known to be one of the most stylish Indian cricketers. His clothing sense and hairstyle often is the talk of the town. Ahead of the IPL 2024, Kohli’s new hairstyle, done by celebrity hairdresser Aalim Hakim, became quite a rage. Not only Kohli, Hakim also does hairstyling for MS Dhoni too. The celebrity hairdresser recently opened up on his charges.

While not revealing directly, how much he charged for Virat Kohli’s hairstyle, Hakim gave an ideas. “My Fee is very simple which everybody know How much I charge. So, it starts from Rs 1 lakh. That’s the minimum,” he said on Brut India.

“Mahi sir and Virat, they are very old friends and they have been coming to me for haircuts for a long time. And since IPL was coming now, so we decided to do something cool and different. And Virat always have references that ‘we need to try this, we will try that next time’,” Hakim said.

“So we keep chatting all the time that  what should (be) the next look. This time we decided to do something really cool. We did a slit in his eyebrows and kept the sides a little fade, a little mullet at the back. The texture can show and yeah, and we did a little colour in the hair. So when I posted the picture, it really broke the internet and the amount of shares and likes I got on my post, that was insane.

“And he has an immense fan following. People follow Virat Kohli all over the world. And Virat Kohli is a big sensation when it comes to fashion and aesthetics. His own aesthetics are so strong when it comes to fashion. He is not only one of the best but he is the best player in the world. But also when it comes to style, fashion, he is number one. And when we talk about Dhoni, I visualize Mahi in a very different way. For me, he is not less than any Hollywood actor. I always visualize him as a star, as a cool guy. So whenever there is an ad film shoot happening, I always request him, ‘Let me record you or let me do some photo shoot from my phone. And then I’ll post it later whenever I feel like.”

Virat has been RCB’s only hope in this otherwise dull IPL 2024 season so far. In four matches, he has scored 203 runs at an average of 67.66 and a strike rate of almost 141, with two half-centuries. His best score is 83*. He is the Orange Cap holder in the season so far for most runs.

But there are some worrying trends about Virat that pop up everytime its time to take on Men in Pink. While the Sawai Mansingh Stadium has been extremely great for Virat as an international cricketer, he has failed to replicate his international numbers in IPL at this stadium.

In three international games here, Virat has scored 195 runs at an average of 97.50, with a century and a fifty. His century against Australia came back in October 2013 in just 52 balls and is still the fastest ODI ton by an Indian.

But Royals’ have kept Virat’s record-breaking habits under check at this stadium. In eight matches Virat has played at this venue in the IPL, he has scored just 149 runs at an average of 21.29 and a poor strike rate of just over 94. His best score here is 39* and no fifties and hundreds have been made here by Virat here. His last match at this stadium against RR saw him score a sluggish 18 in 19 balls. Out of all venues where he’s batted at least eight innings in his IPL career, he has the worst average in Jaipur.
