The Recent advertisement by Cred the payment App, featuring Rahul Dravid has shocked everyone on the internet. Rahul Dravid was seen in a totally different avatar. We all have always seen Rahul Dravid in a very composed and calm state; he is one of the greatest cricketers we know. He has toiled hard whenever he was out in the middle and made bowlers’ blood boil with his calmness, and he was aptly named as ‘the Wall’. No one ever Imagined Rahul Dravid Shouting in the middle of the street screaming “Indiranagarkagundahoon main”.
In the Advertisement by CRED, we saw Rahul Dravid is stuck in the middle of the Traffic and getting angry at other people, Dravid is seen picking fights, banging up the side view mirrors of other vehicles with a bat, and getting frustrated. Later, he gets on top of the car roof and screams “Indiranagarkagundahoon main”. At the beginning of the advertisement Actor Jim Sarbh says, “When you pay your credit card bill on CRED, you earn CRED coins. Use them to claim cashback and rewards. I know this sounds ridiculous; it is like Rahul Dravid has anger issues”. The Ad represented exactly how it was said, it was funny, unexpected but an interesting advertisement by CRED.
Many of the cricketers and other people shared the Ad on social media, commenting that they loved to see this side of Rahul Dravid,

Imagine how pissed off Rahul Dravid will be if people now refer to him as "Indiranagar ka goonda" instead of as "The Wall". A reputation built over 25 years flipped in just 15 seconds.

Virat Kohli’s social media is the biggest marketing channel in India right now. He has been the most saleable cricketer for the last half decade. Really, really daft for *anyone* to think his CRED tweet was organic. https://t.co/ucFBoDTyOv

Director: “Rahul sir, you have to be really, like reeeeeally angry.”
Rahul sir: “but, I’ve never been angry. How?”
Director: “ummm… let’s say someone will get a crore to tweet this ad once…”
