Rahul Dravid recently made headlines after his new commercial showed him in an "angry avatar". In the new advertisement, Rahul yells, 'Indiranagar ka gunda hoon main', while creating a ruckus at the traffic signal. Soon #RahulDravid and #IndiranagarKaGunda started trending on Twitter and Instagram. Virat Kohli, too, tweeted the commercial and wrote, "Never saw this side of Rahul Bhai (laughing emoji)".
Rahul Dravid is known for having a calm personality. His 'angry avatar' in the commercial took everyone by surprise. Given the buzz, former Indian opener Virender Sehwag was recently asked if there was a time when Rahul Dravid ever got angry. To everyone's surprise, Virender Sehwag revealed that it happened once and it was directed to MS Dhoni during a ODI game in Pakistan back in 2006.
Recalling the incident, Sehwag said, "I have seen Rahul Dravid get angry. When we were in Pakistan, and back then MS Dhoni was a newcomer. Dhoni played a shot and got caught at point. Dravid was very angry with MS Dhoni. "That's the way you play? You should finish the game". I was myself taken aback by Dravid's English outburst although I didn't understand half of it."
Sehwag further added, "When MS battled the next time, I could see he was not hitting too many shots. I went and asked him what was wrong. He said, "I don't want to be scolded by Dravid again. Let's finish the game quietly and go back."
