Harpreet Brar, the Punjab Kings all-rounder played a major role in their victory against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Friday night.

Harpreet Brar makes a strong statement on Twitter
Harpreet Brar has impressed everyone with his performance against RCB in his first appearance for Punjab Kings. He has made his presence felt on social media now.
The 25-year-old had replied to a fan on Twitter who had compared him with a famous Bollywood actor, Akshay Kumar.
The native of Moga, Punjab was hit with an Instagram DM by a user. He had said that Brar looked like Akshay Kumar, from his movie ‘Singh is Bling, released back in 2015. Kumar had donned a turban look for the movie as he played the role of a Sikh guy.
Though the movie was popular among the Punjabis, as it turns out Brar expressed displeasure when he was compared with the star.
The user wrote, “Paaji aap singh is bling ke Akshay Kumar dikhte ho”, which means ‘Brother, you look like Akshay Kumar in the movie Singh is Bliing.’
Brar responded on his Twitter account with the screenshot of the question on his Instagram DM. He had referred to the farmers’ protest in his response.
The youngster was clear about his statement and said that he doesn’t wear the turban for money. He wrote, “Paise k liye Turban nhi pehnte hum #isupportfarmers,”
