Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli will be exercising his right to vote in the ongoing Lok Sabha Elections from Gurugram constituency on April 12.
Kohli shared his voter ID card on Instagram on Sunday morning asking other voters to cast their vote as well.
At first, the 30-year old shared his voter ID card’s photo on his Instagram story, which he later deleted and put up the photo on his Instagram post after blurring his address and the ID no.
While sharing the voter ID with the blurred address and ID no., the Indian skipper wrote in the caption “Ready to vote in Gurugram on 12th May. Are you?”
Earlier, Kohli wanted to vote from the Worli constituency where he shifted recently with his wife Anushka Sharma. But, the Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper failed to get his name registered in the voting list there.
Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked the premier cricketer to vote via a tweet.
Dear @msdhoni, @imVkohli and @ImRo45,
You are always setting outstanding records on the cricketing field but this time, do inspire the 130 crore people of India to set a new record of high voter turnout in the upcoming elections.
When this happens, democracy will be the winner!

With Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore in eighth position in the Indian Premier League points table, Kohli would definitely be at home on the day of IPL final and can easily cast his vote.
So, now, Virat Kohli will be voting from the constituency of his old home in Gurugram.
