Virat Kohli’s obsession with his beard is well-known. From refusing to join his teammates in the ‘break the beard’ challenge to admitting using beard gel to maintain his look, the India cricket team captain has proven that he is not getting rid of it any time soon.

However, Kohli has been left with some explanations to do after his teammate KL Rahul hilariously accused him of getting his beard insured.

Sharing a video on his Twitter page, Rahul wrote

Possibly, the two men were taking measurements for Kohli’s wax figure that has been recently installed at the Madame Tussauds museum in New Delhi.

Kohli, meanwhile, chose not to reveal details of exactly what was going on as seen in the video. Instead, he tagged a few more of his India and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammates Yuzvendra Chahal and Umesh Yadav and created a new hashtag ‘#ViratBeardInsurance to join the fun.
