- Sehwag is the new rage on social media with his hilarious tweets.
- He believes there is nothing better than making people around you smile and happy.
- He has included himself in his own favouite list. (Reminds you of Jab We Met?)
As he has retired from cricket, he still manages to make his presence felt. The 38-year-old has created a new image for himself - with his hilarious Tweets almost everyday and especially on a fellow cricketer's birthday, he makes his followers smile.
The likes of Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Karun Nair and RP Singh, who celebrated their birthday on December 6, were the latest guinea pigs of Sehwag's tweeting rage. Here is how the senior cricketer wished the youngsters:
Lo ji , even #JaspritBumrah Birthday today.— Virender Sehwag (@virendersehwag) December 6, 2016
Jadeja,RP,Bumrah,Karun. Being born on
6th Dec surely increases chances of playing for India.
From his sons to his idol and legend Sachin Tendulkar and many other celebrities other than his fans follow him closely on Twitter. "I met (actor) Ranveer Singh recently, and he said that he reads my tweets at midnight and jump in bed, laughing," the former opener told Times of India in an interview.
However, he made a special mention of a person who keeps track of his tweets and also watches Sehwag's batting videos on YouTube whenever he gets bored.
Go back and remember Kareena Kapoor's famous dialogue from Bollywood movie, 'Jab We Met' - "Mein apni favourite hoon (I'm my favourite).
"I watch my own batting videos on YouTube and enjoy. I read my tweets and enjoy. I have entertained people so much; I also have a right. I have admired a lot of cricketers and I am also one of them. I am my own favourite," Sehwag who figures in his own favourite list said.
I am my own favourite
While Kareena's character 'Geet' gave us a lesson of living life at the edge, we have an inspiration in real life.
Sehwag, who is one of the most popular figures in the country, surely knows the best way to lead a simple and happy life. He not only keeps himself pleased but also spreads joy around him.
"Social media is a platform where you can express your opinion and engage with your fans. I have always believed in one thing - entertainment, entertainment and entertainment. There is already a lot of tension in life. If you can make somebody happy and smile, why not, nothing like it, " Sehwag explained further.
Be the reason someone smiles today - Thank you, Sehwag for teaching us the simple mantra behind happiness!
