Darpan News Desk IANS, 13 Jun, 2017 12:51 PM
    British Indian entrepreneur Poonam Gupta has bought a painting depicting Virat Kohli's IPL journey over 10 years for a whopping 2.9 million pounds.
     
    The painting, which was created by artist Sasha Jaffrey, was bought during the recent charity dinner organised by Virat Kohli foundation.
     
    Sasha is an award-winning and one of the most notable painters in the world.
     
     
    He has collaborated with likes of David Beckham, MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh for their charities and causes.
     
    "What I like about this young generation of Indian cricketers is that they are responsible and want to make a difference on and off the field. I am very connected to the cause taken up by Virat," said Poonam Gupta, who is the CEO of Scotland based company PG Papers.
     
    "Slavery has no place in this world and we need to stand up and do our bit.
     
    I am glad Virat has come forward against this evil and by buying this magnificent piece of art created by my favourite artist Sasha Jaffrey, I tick two boxes. I take a rare master piece to my home and also help this noble cause in my own way," Ms Gupta said.
