Life insurance is no big deal, but getting your body parts or other attributes insured is quite wacky. For celebrities, their bodily features serve as their means of livelihood and fame. So, it is only natural that they would be protective of their ‘assets’. With the buzz around Indian skipper, Virat Kohli getting his beard insured, the trend is gaining quite a momentum in India. Though, it has already been in practice in the West, with celebrities like Miley Cyrus (she got her tongue insured), Jennifer Lopez (has her voluptuous booty insured), Daniel Craig (got his whole body insured), and many others popularising the latest fad, Indian celebrities are joining their Western counterparts in protecting their features, too.

John Abraham

The handsome hunk, John Abraham, who gave us a tantalizing butt view in Dostana not only had his female friends ogling but also arrested the attention of an international insurer. They offered to ensure the Bollywood star’s derrière for a whopping Rs 10 crore to which he responded positively. Well, it is an ass-et and most expensive butt in Bollywood

Sunny Deol

Known for his ‘dhai kilo ka haath’, Sunny Deol got his voice and dialogue style copyrighted instead. Because he was disappointed when his voice and dialogue delivery was adopted for mimicry, which far exceeded permissible levels according to him.

Rajnikanth

There is nothing that Rajnikanth can’t do, especially in his films. Speak of Thalaiva and even the earth stands still (pun intended of course). The actor who, even today, has a crazy fan following, has got his voice insured and patented, followed by a petition he filed against a production house for personality right violation.

 Amitabh Bachchan

The Big B, Amitabh Bachchan, got really upset when he found out that the voice artists were using his baritone without the permission to sell certain products that he didn’t quite approve of. So, it was buzzed that Amitabh wants to get his voice copyrighted. Hence, Mr Bachchan got his voice tone insured and patented.

Priyanka Chopra

Everybody is aware of Priyanka Chopra’s pouty smile on which she has drawn up a copyright. As she seems to be of the opinion that her smile is very much her own, and no one has the right to copy it after she discovered the wrong ways of it getting used by doctors promising young girls to achieve ‘Priyanka Chopra Smile’ after necessary surgical tweaking.

 Mallika Sherawat

Known for her hourglass figure, Mallika Sherawat went a step ahead of all the other Bollywood divas and got her whole body insured. It is also believed that the actress spends hours on her body to keep it flawless.

Sania Mirza

Ace tennis player, Sania Mirza has reportedly got her hands insured, which are her greatest assets. Because tennis is a tough game and it involves a lot of hand movements and mind presence. Plus, we all have seen her create magic by winning trophies for the country.

Lata Mangeshkar

Known as the second nightingale of India, Lata Mangeshkar has given a number of hits and even lent her voice to generations of actresses since 1940s. While the amount remains unknown, it has been confirmed that she has got her melodic voice insured.

Vijender Singh

India’s ace pugilist, Vijender Singh got his power-packed hands insured, as those are his main weapons in the game. The decision came after his medal-winning performance in 2008 Beijing Olympics.

India captain Virat Kohli on Sunday became the top-ranked batsman in Test cricket for the first time in his career as he ended Australian Steven Smith’s reign of nearly 32 months.

Kohli scored 149 and 51 in India’s 31-run defeat in the first Test in Birmingham against England and has gone up by 31 points, according to an International Cricket Council (ICC) release.

“The 29-year-old right-hander from Delhi also became the seventh India batsman and first since Sachin Tendulkar in June 2011, to top the rankings for Test batsmen, which were released on Sunday morning following the conclusion of the Edgbaston Test,” ICC said.

Kohli now leads Smith (who had held the top spot since December 2015) by five points, but will have to maintain the form in the remaining four Tests to finish the series as the world’s highest-ranked batsman.

Tendulkar had joined South Africa’s Jacques Kallis in the number one position in January 2011, but had dropped to second spot following the Jamaica Test in June 2011 after he had missed the three-Test series against the West Indies.

Apart from Kohli and Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Gautam Gambhir, Sunil Gavaskar, Virender Sehwag and Dilip Vengsarkar are the other India batsmen to have achieved number one rankings during their careers.

However, at 934 points, Kohli has become India’s highest-ranked batsman, 14th overall, on the all-time tally of points. Kohli had entered the Edgbaston Test on 903 points, 13 points behind Gavaskar, and is now ahead of the ICC Cricket Hall of Famer by 18 points.

If Kohli can deliver another strong performance in the second Test at Lord’s, then he can break into the top-10 by leapfrogging Matthew Hayden, Kallis and AB de Villiers, whose highest points tally was 935 each. Donald Bradman (961) and Steve Smith (947) are the two batsmen sitting on top of this exclusive list.

Kohli, who powered India to the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup title in 2008 and then won the prestigious Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Cricketer of the Year in 2017, is the 76th player to top the Test batting rankings.

He is also the number one ranked ODI batsman, but is ranked 12th in T20Is, 220 points behind number one ranked Aaron Finch of Australia.

However, in the rankings, India’s Lokesh Rahul 19th (down by one place), Ajinkya Rahane 22nd (down by three places), Murali Vijay and Shikhar Dawan, who now share 25th position after slipping two and one spots, respectively, have lost ground.

Following the Test in Birmingham, the batsmen to lose ground after the Edgbaston Test include Alastair Cook 17th (down by four places), respectively, and Ben Stokes 33rd (down by five places).

In the bowlers’ table, Stuart Broad of England and Mohammed Shami of India are the two bowlers inside the top-20 who have dropped their positions, while James Anderson has retained his top position but his lead over Kagiso Rabada has been reduced to two points.

Broad is now ranked 13th after falling one place, while Shami is in 19th spot after sliding two places.

Stokes has compensated for his double failure with the bat by taking six wickets in the Test, including three of India’s last four wickets. For this performance, he has been rewarded with a rise of four places, which has put him in 27th position.

India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has gained 14 points following his four for 62 and three for 59, which means he now trails South Africa’s fourth-ranked Vernon Philander by just one point.

Pacer Ishant Sharma has collected 19 points to move within 13 points of 25th-ranked team-mate Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

England’s 20-year-old Sam Curran is another fascinating story from what was a nerve-wracking 1000th England men’s Test. The left-handed all-rounder scored 24 and 63 with the bat, and claimed match figures of five for 92 with the ball, which not only earned him the player of the match award but significant gains in the latest rankings.

In the batting table, Curran has jumped from 152nd to 72nd, the bowling table has seen him rise 49 places to 62nd, while in the all-rounders’ category, he now sits in 37th position after jumping 58 places. (IANS)
