Gambhir’s Playful Tribute to Kapil Dev: Jokes About Winning the “Acting World Cup”
In his new tweet, Gambhir playfully praised Kapil Dev’s acting skills and said, “Areh @therealkapildev paaji well played! Acting ka World Cup bhi aap hi jeetoge! Ab hamesha yaad rahega ki ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup is free on @DisneyPlusHS mobile [You will only win the World Cup of Acting! We will always remember from now onwards that the ICC Cricket World Cup is free on @DisneyPlusHS mobile].”
The second video showed Kapil Dev tied to a chair with a gag over his mouth, surrounded by a group of villagers. When a police officer questioned them about their actions and why they had taken Kapil Dev, they explained they were seeking assurance there would be no power outages during World Cup matches.
