Walker’s collaboration with RCB, like that of other worldwide musicians such as Rihanna and Ed Sheeran, has piqued fans’ excitement. A video of Walker exchanging friendly welcomes with RCB skipper Virat Kohli has gone viral, gaining a lot of attention.

During their honest conversation, Walker sent his genuine wishes to Kohli upon learning of the cricketer’s increasing family. Walker soon corrected himself once Kohli clarified that he had welcomed a son, as he had previously assumed Kohli had a daughter. Walker expressed genuine excitement and best wishes to Kohli, the proud parent.

Kohli and his wife, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, announced the birth of their second child, a newborn boy named Akaay, on February 15. The pair expressed their pleasure to fans via a poignant social media message, requesting blessings and privacy during this unique time in their lives.

Despite the new addition to his family, Kohli has quickly returned to the cricket ground for the IPL matches. With Walker’s presence adding to the excitement, RCB prepares to face the Chennai Super Kings in the tournament opener.
