The current crop of Indian cricketers sure seems to be experts at securing their financial future.
You’ve heard about MS Dhoni’s investments in other sports franchises, his stake in the cricket stadium in Ranchi and his fitness chain. More recently, Yuvraj Singh was in the news for his plan to invest in a beauty and wellness mobile app. And now, Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli has become the latest to join the list of entrepreneurial cricketers.
According to latest news reports, Kohli is set to invest 90 crore to set up a chain of gyms and fitness centres.
TOI reports that the total investment is estimated at around 190 crore and will be used to build 75 gyms across the country. The report also claims that the project will be launched under the brand name of Chisel Fitness, a brand co-owned by Virat Kohli.
“We will launch gyms of various sizes and with different facilities according to their locations. We are also in talks with international sports-based fitness experts to bring in their expertise,” Satya Sinha, director of Chisel Fitness told Times of India.
Kohli already has a joint stake in FC Goa, a football franchise which is part of the Indian Super League. He also owns a clothing line called WROGN, which he launched last Novemeber.
