Watch: Video of Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan meeting Gurmeet Ram Rahim goes viral

An old video of cricketers Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan seeking self-proclaimed religious guru Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh's blessing is breaking the internet.

The file video shows the two ace cricketers meeting Singh during one of his preaching sessions, as they later get down on their knees and join their hands in front of him to seek his "blessings."

Ram Rahim is the most scandalous spiritual guru in India right now after being convicted of rape by a special CBI Court and being subjected for a punishment of 20 years in prison.

The sensitive state of the affairs across various cities after the conviction hearing was so intense that thousands of army personals had to be called in as Ram Rahim's supporters created a havoc on various parts of northern India, burning public transports and causing severe damage to public properties.

On another video Ram Rahim Singh is seen claiming that Dhawan and Kohli are one of his many "bhakts."

Although old, the videos are still raising a lot of eyebrows among cricket fans who are wondering why would any intelligent person choose to worship an outlandish personality like that.

"I imagine there are a few red-faced cricketers around at the moment. Why do intelligent people do this?" - one Twitter comment read.
