The viral ad that shows Rahul Dravid as ‘Indira Nagar ka Gunda’ has taken the internet by storm. From the public to celebs to cricketers, none have been able to hold themselves from reacting to the hilariously angry side of one of the most composed personalities.
In the viral advertisement, the never-seen-before side of Dravid brought was out by the credit card bill payment app Cred. Opposite to his cool and calm avatar, he can be seen yelling at people while he is stuck in a traffic jam, where he even breaks the side-mirror of a car and rises out of the sunroof to shout “Indiranagar ka Gunda hun main”.
Having shown an exact opposite version of Dravid’s, some behind-the-scenes snippets, which uses footage not used in the advertisement have come out recently. The former Indian cricketer is seen hanging his head after smashing a rearview mirror. “VVS brings the boys,” he says in one of the many snippets shown in the new video. “Don’t awaken my inner beast,” yells Dravid in another one of the snippets.
There were no star tantrums shown by Rahul Dravid: Ad director
“Every time Rahul Dravid would scream, every single time he screamed, he would cover his forehead with his hands. Like ‘What am I doing? Why am I doing this?’ laughed Ayappa KM, who directed the commercial.
“We kind of simulated a jam for the shoot where, on one side, you get somebody to just scream at him. So he reacts to it and also kind of forgets that is in front of a camera. Almost like theatre, we kind of have some improvisational acting with him, and he pulled it off. But he never got angry, that never happened. There were no star tantrums,” he added.
“I think the biggest victory here is that Rahul Dravid looks like a seasoned actor,” says Ayappa. “Let’s be honest, he is known for his cricketing skills much more than his acting skills. So it was very nice to see the feedback that somewhere we’ve communicated the dark side of Rahul Dravid that doesn’t even exist!”, he said.
Former captain of the Indian Cricket Team, Dravid is considered one of the finest batsmen to have ever played the sport. In his career spanning over 16 years, he represented India in 164 Tests, 344 ODIs, and a solitary T20I game, amassing over 24,000 runs and 48 centuries.
