Indian skipper, Virat Kohli celebrates his 29th birthday today, and social media is going ballistic with birthday wishes for the cricketer and heartthrob of millions.
While we’ve all been waiting to see what his alleged lady-love Anushka Sharma has planned for his big day, fan have been swooning about something else altogether. Unlike Anushka, Virat has been pretty expressive of his feelings towards the actress. Whether it’s his Instagram profile picture or him blushing at interviews when she’s mentioned, the cricketer is all mush for the actress.
The duo recently did an Ad film together for an Indian clothing brand, and fans couldn’t control their excitement while watching it! They were seen playfully saying out their own vows at another friend’s wedding. Here’s the video if you haven’t already watched it!
Recently, in a candid interview with Gaurav Kapoor, Virat was quizzed about the changes Anushka brought into his life, and the cricketer didn’t hold back while answering. He said, “Lady luck ka kamaal hai. You have seen me, you know I had no sense before. Ever since the lady has come into my life, she’s taught me a lot of things. I’ve learnt a lot, become more sensible in the last 4 years all because of her. She’s taught me how to be more patient and taught me how to utilise the position I am in to the fullest. At that time too, I never tried to be anyone else. I never tried to tell myself that I should be reading books etc… those are gradual things. If you like it, you like it. So, luckily I never tried to change myself. But the flip has been because of her.” Aww!!
He went on to credit her for his success saying, “In England in 2014, Anushka was there in my life, she understood what I was going through so she kept me motivated. Her support helped me push through, however bad it was for me. She was a constant in that time. Then Australia happened and I ended up scoring runs, in her presence. So it was a special thing for both of us because she had also faced so much flak. We were being criticised and people were saying this is what happens when you allow girlfriends on the tour. So I said if you are not okay with it, I can’t be in a relationship? According to them, I should either get married or be single.”
The cricketer was also questioned about what prompted him into brining his relationship out in the open. He said, “A very big reason behind this is Zaheer Khan. Luckily he was one of the first guys I spoke to about this and he said whatever you do don’t try to hide it because you’ll stress yourself. And on top of that, you’re in a relationship, you’re not doing anything wrong. I’m actually very grateful that my first interaction about this was with Zak. And he told me the right thing to do so I’ve followed it ever since.” Well, that god for Zaheer, that #Virushka came out in the open, adding smiles to millions of fans!
