Virat Kohli, with his recent performances has made it to the front pages of national dailies. Now, the World Cup winning captain of the India U-19 team in 2008 has graced the cover of the world’s largest men’s magazine Men’s Health

The magazine saw the potential in Kohli and Pradeep Sangwan and picked them for their first-ever fashion shoot.

“We were starstruck teenagers then (in 2008). Though I was a tad nervous, we thoroughly enjoyed the shoot. In hindsight, that episode with MH eased me into the limelight.”

Kohli, who features on the cover of Men’s Health’s bi-annual 15-page Guide to Style section in the September 2012 issue, said: “A fit body gives you confidence.”

“And there’s nothing more impressive than a great attitude, which you can wear on your sleeve. But you’ll have to remember the difference between being rude and being confident,” Kohli was quoted saying by India Today.

“This is Kohli’s third shoot with Men’s Health India in four years, though this is the first time he’s gracing the cover,” Jamal Shaikh, the editorial director of Men’s Health said.

“We’re a real man’s magazine, and Virat’s success story and sense of style are very achievable for the common Indian youngster. That’s what makes him an even bigger star in our eyes.”
