The super healthy and very talented cricketer KL Rahul has time and again proved his passion for the game as a batsman and often as a wicket-keeper. In his ODI debut against Zimbabwe in 2016, Rahul became the first Indian debutante to hit an ODI century. His talents though are not restricted to the playing field. The young sportsman wears multiple hats. He is the Founder of up and coming streetwear and Athleisure brand Gully Live Fast, and is also the face of many mass, premium and luxury brands.
LuxeBook learns Rahul’s fitness and style secrets at Gully Live Fast’s exclusive launch at Curato in Mumbai.
I like to mix and match and see what looks best. Without experimenting you’ll never know what looks good and what doesn’t. I like to keep it simple and comfortable, yet stylish.
To achieve fitness goals, hard work, focus and dedication are important.

A leisure day in my life would be waking up late and having a good breakfast, catching up with friends for rounds of PlayStation games, going out with friends and family for coffee or a nice meal and spending some time with Simba (my pet Chow Chow).
I can’t imagine my life without cricket, and I’m happy to have received the opportunity to represent our country and the immense joy this game gives me.
I’m currently readinga book by Sadguru.
The greatest luxury for meis a happy and calm mind; it doesn’t have to be materialistic. Being able to give myself a comfortable living is luxury too.
