In the video, Kohli and De Villiers ask each other about their respective families, and were also later joined by Glenn Maxwell and Washington Sundar for some cool dance moves.
Having joined RCB in 2008, Kohli is yet to win the IPL, and has been captaining the team since 2013.
The team reached the playoffs last season, at the United Arab Emirates (UAE). But a defeat to SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Eliminator bought an end to their journey in IPL 2020.
Kohli was RCB’s second-highest run-scorer last season, with 466 runs from 15 matches. He also registered three half-centuries.
Meanwhile, De Villiers was his team’s third highest run-scorer, with 454 runs from 15 fixtures. He scored five half-centuries during the campaign.
Ahead of the duo, Devdutt Padikkal (473) scored the most runs for RCB.
IPL 2021 is set to begin from April 9, with defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) facing RCB in the season opener.
