K. Shriniwas Rao, who works for News18, posted a tweet that spoke about a “leading celebrity manager” who betrayed the trust of a “top cricketer,”  which led to ”deliberate messing up with the finances and causing immense mental strain.” For some reason, this split sounds a lot like Virat Kohli’s recent split with his manager, Bunty Sajdeh.

Along with that, the well wishers of the top cricketer are informing many of his friends and the clients of his former manager to stay alert, while also telling how they have been misled. The journalist further added that if the manager did this to a big player, imagine what would happen with young stars. 


Fans on the Internet believed this blind was related to Kohli and Sajdeh. Kohli and his manager Sajdeh, had recently announced that they had ended their professional relationship. It was well known that the two were close friends, but after their split it looks like the two won’t even remain close on a personal level. 

Who is Bunty Sajdeh? 

Bunty Sajdeh is the CEO of Cornerstone, an agency service that was created in 2008. The firm has had clients such as Virat Kohli, KL Rahul.
