Cricketer Virender Sehwag has made his web series debut and will be seen hosting episodes of a show titled “Viru Ke Funde”.
The 15-episode series will have Sehwag give a humorous take on tackling real life problems which people encounter.
“‘Viru ke Funde’ is about sharing what I have learnt in life and cricket with my real friends, making the experience all the more fun. I am delighted to partner with Viu which has given me a platform to engage with my fans through the digital medium,” Sehwag said in a statement.
“I hope the show will give you as much thrill as my batting did. What you can expect from the show? Nothing less than a sixer for every googly life bowls at you,” he added.
Each episode of the show will have a run time of two minutes and will have Sehwag doling out advice to his group of friends in a ‘Chai Pe Charcha’ format.
“One new episode will be scheduled for release every day for the next ten days until December 2. We are sure that with Sehwag’s earthly humor and wit, the show will be an instant hit with our young audience who want to see more of him on our platform,” Vishal Maheshwari, Country Head Vuclip India said.
The first five episodes of the show was launched on Tuesday.
