Since joining Cornerstone over a decade ago, Kohli and Bunty, Rohit Sharma's brother-in-law have developed a strong friendship over the years. According to News18, Bunty's Cornerstone was forced to let go of players like Rohit, KL Rahul, Ajinkya Rahane, Shubman Gill, and others who believed that Virat was the only person the company cared about.
Here's what the News18 report read, as quoted by a source
“Yes, Kohli and Bunty have parted ways after a very long and successful partnership. Over the years, there are a lot of other cricketers who’ve parted ways with Cornerstone. Rohit, KL Rahul, Ajinkya, Shubman and others. But Virat and Cornerstone were inseparable. Now, that relationship is over too."
Together, Bunty and Kohli accomplished many great deals, one of which being the Rs 100-crore partnership with Puma.
