Earlier, after winning the toss, Kohli chose to hit and his decision appeared to backfire early in the innings when Deepak Chahar cleared Aaron Finch in the third over.
The RCB captain then joined Devdutt Padikkal in the middle and the duo put on 53 runs for the second wicket.
Shardul Thakur removed Padikkal in the 11th over and quickly picked up another big wicket when he sent AB de Villiers back to the pavilion for a second ball duck.
As wickets fell from one end, Kohli kept going, putting the bad balls away to the boundary.
Kohli added 26 runs for the fourth wicket with Washington Sundar before being turned down by Sam Curran.
Allrounder Shivam Dube then joined his skipper in the middle and remained unbeaten at 22.
The duo added 76 runs when CSK bowlers were brought to the cleaners to the back of RCB’s innings.
