Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has shared a video on his X handle that shows the captain of the 1983 World Cup-winning team, Kapil Dev, forcibly led into a room by two men. His hands were tied with a rope.

The clip has left everyone wondering. Was it a genuine kidnapping, or an advertising stunt?

“Anyone else received this clip, too? Hope it’s not actually @therealkapildev 🤞and that Kapil Paaji is fine,” he wrote.

Kapil Dev was last seen in Varanasi with Sachin Tendulkar, Sunil Kumar and Ravi Shastri.

He is one of the legends of the game, having led the Indian team to great heights.

On the other hand, Gambhir is associated with Lucknow Super Giants as a mentor and regularly works as a commentator.
