Cricketer Rishabh Pant and javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra recently came together for a photoshoot planned by their agency. But apart from good frames, what emerged from the exercise was a budding bromance.
While the chemistry between the sportspersons is evident in the photos shared on Twitter, their interaction revealed that the two get along like a house on fire. And, it was the first time they met each other.Sharing some of the shots from the shoot, Chopra thanked "Rishabh Bhai" for making it easy for him to face the cameras.
Always easier when you have a friend with you to face the cameras! Great fun doing this with Rishabh bhai. pic.twitter.com/7SvNtZMyV6

Talking about Pant, Neeraj Chopra told Hindustan Times, “I don’t follow cricket much, but I still have heard a lot about Rishabh Pant. He is a very skillful and hardworking player—and he is so confident and comfortable in front of the camera! His tips really helped me during the shoot.”
Rishabh Pant did not hold back either. The wicketkeeper-batsman said, “Neeraj has done something phenomenal for India. It will be very difficult for any other athlete to match that kind of success. But when I met him, he was so humble. The vibe he gives is homely.”Meanwhile, fans welcomed the camaraderie between the two.
It's an image of the person who brought glory to the nation with the person who will bring the most glories to the nation.
