David Warner's Bahubali-Inspired Ad with SS Rajamouli Takes Internet by Storm

David Warner, the Australian cricketer and Delhi Capitals batter, has become an internet sensation with his latest collaboration with Telugu director SS Rajamouli. In an advertisement for Cred, an Indian fintech company, Warner transforms into a character inspired by Rajamouli's blockbuster movie, Bahubali.

The ad showcases Warner's love for Telugu cinema, as he recreates iconic scenes and performs dance moves from the film. Rajamouli, who plays a frustrated figure in the ad, is seen reacting to Warner's antics with amusement.

Warner's fascination with Telugu culture began during his time with the SunRisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He often shares videos of himself dancing to Telugu songs, and his wife and daughters have also joined him in these videos.

Warner played eight seasons for SRH between 2014 and 2021, leading the franchise to their only IPL title in 2016. However, he had a bitter exit from SRH after a falling out with the management.

He was subsequently picked up by the Delhi Capitals, where he led the team in the absence of Rishabh Pant last season. Pant has since resumed his captaincy, and DC has struggled this season, winning only one game out of five.

Despite DC's poor form, Warner has been in good touch, scoring 158 runs at an average of 31.60 and a strike rate of over 142. His best score of 52 came in DC's only win so far, against the Chennai Super Kings in Visakhapatnam.

Warner's collaboration with Rajamouli has not only entertained fans but also highlighted his love for Indian culture. It remains to be seen if he can continue his good form and help DC turn their season around.
