KL Rahul Presented "The League of Platinum Men"

Mumbai: Putting the team before personal glory, reaching out to a rival player, being a pillar of strength to a nervous debutant, on the cricket pitch, choices are made at every moment. Choices that don’t just decide the fate of the game, but determine the values and strength of character of the players. These are the moments of truth in every game. They test everything a player stands for, everything they have ever known. For many, they are instinctive choices that are led by values, and they make players, legends in their own right. A part of a rare breed who form the League of Platinum Men.

Delving into the league of these men of character, Men of Platinum took viewers on a special journey with cricketing star KL Rahul through the show ‘The League of Platinum Men’. The series aired on Disney + Hotstar from October 22nd onwards.

The 6-part miniseries, hosted by Archana Vijayan, featured candid conversations with KL Rahul.

These are iconic players comprising the who’s who of the cricketing world.  Cricketing heroes who are known not only for their cricketing prowess but also their demonstration of character, both on and off the pitch.  We hear KL narrate instances where actions spoke louder than words, where players like Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle, Anil Kumble, Rahul Dravid made choices that displayed rare values making them a part of cricketing history forever.

Every day on the field is a new day with new challenges, and decisions, even the tough ones, have to sometimes be made within split seconds. It is in those crucial moments that our characters are tested.Furthermore, I have always been drawn to platinum, Men of Platinum the brand truly embodies the tenacity of a rare character, and the jewellery makes a bold statement while being minimalistic.”
