British-Indian entrepreneur Poonam Gupta has bought a painting depicting Virat Kohli’s IPL journey over 10 years for a whopping 290,000 pounds (SGD 509,704).
She bought artist Sasha Jaffrey’s painting during the recent charity dinner organised by the Virat Kohli foundation. Sasha is an award-winning painter and well-known in the UK art 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 difference on and off the field. I am very connected to the cause taken up by Virat,” said Poonam Gupta, who is 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 masterpiece to my home and also help this noble cause in my own way,” Gupta said.
