The Hyderabadi, who plays for RCB in IPL, recently shared a touching story about the time he bought a new house and invited his RCB teammates over for a dinner party on an episode of ‘Breakfast with Champions’. Siraj couldn’t help but extend a personal invitation to his teammate and cricketing idol, Virat Kohli, in the midst of his excitement.
“I told Virat Bhaiya that I am hosting a dinner at my house,” he said in the video. “Are you going to come?”
Caught up in his enthusiasm, he couldn’t help but call Kohli again to confirm the plan. To his surprise, the RCB star revealed that he was suffering from a stiff back and would rather rest. Siraj had no idea that destiny had a special surprise in store for him.
“I was sad but he ultimately ended up making it and gave me a surprise. I ran and hugged him. It was the biggest gift of my life,” Siraj said.
