The ‘Bat Talks for India’ AR filter will enable fans to re-create Kohli’s iconic celebration after recording a century against Australia nearly two years ago.

To use the effect on Instagram, you will have to go to Virat Kohli’s Instagram profile and head to the filters tab to see the ‘Bat Talks for India’ AR filter. Once you click on the filter, an option to save it on your profile will be available at the bottom of the screen. Clicking on that option will save it to your Instagram camera. To use the filter, you will then have to swipe left from the homepage to open the camera and then look for the ‘Bat Talks for India’ filter next to the shutter button.

Tapping on the filter will bring a Virat Kohli AR avatar onto your camera screen, superimposing the figurine into your background. Users can then make a video or take a photo with the avatar creating different content of their liking. The avatar is seen cheering, and is essentially a depiction of his elatedness after scoring a century against Australia about two years ago.

On Facebook, the effect is available on Virat Kohli’s post with the effect from his Facebook Page. Fans can access the effect via the post and use it within the Facebook Camera.
