Former England captain Kevin Pietersen is quite active on social media, especially during this coronavirus lockdown. Joining a long list of cricketers, Pietersen recently started posting fun videos on Tik Tok. His videos have become quite a rage on social media and that too in a short span of time. One of his videos, which is doing rounds on social media, shows him dancing on AR Rahman’s famous Tamil song Ottagathai Kattiko from 1993 film Gentleman. In the beginning of video, he acts as if he is trying to gauge the beat but moments later starts shaking his legs in free spirit. Music maestro AR Rahman came across Pietersen’s video and couldn’t resist himself from sharing it.
Earlier in the day, Pietersen had posted another hilarious Tik Tok video which became quite a hit among his followers.
