India and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli has revealed how he was terrified by a letter sent by a fan as it was written in blood.
Kohli is a beloved figure in India, and fans are always hoping to get their photo taken with him or receive an autograph.
While Kohli is certainly no stranger to fan interactions, he admitted that this particular incident really unnerved him.
“I had a letter sent to me written in blood,” Kohli, who is currently playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), told Eros Now as quoted by CricTracker. “That was nasty. It happened quite a while back in Delhi. I was going away in my car. Pulled the window down to sign something and something popped out of nowhere. I didn’t even see who gave it to me.
“The name was written on it and I just gave it the security guy. I couldn’t even accept it. It was very scary.”
However, on a brighter note, Kohli also recalled a particularly hilarious fan incident when he was sleeping on a flight.
“I was in a flight once. It might have happened during the IPL games. I was sleeping with my headphones on and I woke up with a baby on my lap,” he said. “Someone was tapping on my shoulder and there was a guy who was about to take a selfie. I had my glasses on so I think the guy might have thought that I was actually watching him but I was actually sleeping.”
