Bhubaneswar: How far would you go to impress your role model? A man from Odisha has turned his body into a ‘picture album’ with tattoos to pay tributes to his icon who is none other than the skipper of the Indian cricket team Virat Kohli.
Meet Pintu Behera of Masiakhali of Ganjam district who has now taken the internet by storm after Virat Kohli met and hugged him recently ahead of India’s first test match against South Africa in Vizag.
Pintu has inked his body with tattoos of every big achievement of Virat Kohli. This die-hard fan has needled 15 tattoos of his cricketing god.
“I had waited long for this moment. I have tattooed all the major milestones of Virat Kohli on my body. I was trying to meet him for last two to three years but didn’t succeed. Later, a reporter helped me meet Virat Kohli,” said Pintu.
In an exclusive interview to OTV from Vizag, Pintu further stated that he waited for four long years to meet his icon Virat Kohli. It was that hug from Virat which will stay in my memory for ever, he added.
Tattoo artist, Ganesh said that Pintu was one of his clients and was crazy about Virat Kohli.
On his request, we first inked a portrait of Virat on his chest some two years back. Later, we continued adding achievements of Virat from blowing a kiss to wife Anushka Sharma, Under-19 World Cup and paying respect to Sachin Tendulkar with his head bowed among others.
“I am happy that my client has succeeded in meeting his icon Virat Kohli. We used to work for 6 to 7 hours to get the tattoos done,” said Ganesh.
