Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, who’re lovingly known as Virushka as a shipname given by their fans, dated for four years before tying the knot in an intimate affair in Tuscany, Italy, last December. Well, almost five months into the marriage, Virat Kohli feels that it is now that he is finally able to deal with the constant public scrutiny of his personal life.
The Indian cricket team Captain has stated that he keeps a very good balance in-between both his professional and personal life even with all the pressure that comes from his always-on-the-go schedule.
“The constant public scrutiny about my personal life can become a bit uncomfortable at times. However, I have learnt how to handle it. Celebrities are also normal human beings — just like any other person, and I feel people should let them have their space,” Virat Kohli told a news agency.
He added, “I keep a good balance between my personal and professional life. When I am with family, I try to completely switch off from cricket. I try to catch up with friends, watch a movie or go out for a drive. I like spending time with my dog.”
However, Virat Kohli is all about the game and “mind and heart into the next game”, once the Captain is on the ground.
On his journey from domestic cricket to becoming India captain, Kohli said, “It has been an incredible journey. I come from a humble background, and my journey towards where I am today started from a colony in West Delhi. The road to success was not easy and I have learnt to face challenges head on. I have come through the ranks of junior cricket, making my way to Ranji Trophy and then the Indian team.”
Furthermore the Padmashree Awardee, talked about his thoughts while being a part of the winning team during the World Cup 2011. “From the very first day, my goal has been to play for my country, and this brings me immense pride. Standing on the cricket pitch, and seeing your countrymen cheer for you, is a happy feeling, and I enjoy every moment of it,” said Virat Kohli, who also won the Arjuna Award in 2013.
With all the kinds of biopics coming out in Bollywood over the lives of sportsmen like Sachin Tendulkar, M.S. Dhoni and others. Does Virat Kohli foresee a biopic on himself?
“It is not something I have thought about a lot. And if there’s one ever made, I feel it will be more of a real account of my life than a biopic,” said Virat Kohli in response.
Well, it would definitely be a tale to tell the world!
