Many either dream of becoming cricketers or actors when we grow up, but very few manage to follow that passion. However, there are some who get a chance to try their luck in both the fields. Many know that Karan Wahi is one of them, but what if we tell you that there is another actor from Kundali Bhagya who has tried both. No, it’s Dheeraj Dhoopar or Manit Joura, but their onscreen cousin Sameer aka Abhishek Kapur, who has been a cricketer in the past.
Have you watched the below episode of Kundali Bhagya?
For those who don’t know, before becoming an actor, Delhi boy Abhishek was a cricketer. And going by reports, he played cricket with Virat Kohli for 14 years. In fact, Abhishek and Virat have been childhood buddies and have grown up together. Sameer Luthra from Kundali Bhagya addressed Virat as Cheeku. How do we know this? Well, when his buddy Virat tied the knot to Anushka Sharma in December 2017 the Kundali Bhagya actor took to Twitter to congratulate his cricketer friend and he ended the post with his sign as Cheeku.

On Kundali Bhagya we see Abhishek playing the shy and innocent Sameer Luthra, but in real life, he is quite a hottie. Apart from Virat, the actor is also good friends with Zain Imam and Abhilash Kumar.
