Indian skipper Virat Kohli can be easily considered as the most popular cricketer of the modern era. Virat’s journey from being a promising youngster to the best batsman in the cricket fraternity is nothing but inspirational. Hailed as ‘King Kohli’, the Delhi-born truly rules the gentlemen’s game.
The qualities that set Virat apart from his other counterparts are his grit, determination, hard work, and the hunger to constantly improve his game. Just like the Indian cricket team, Virat also forms the backbone of his IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
The right-hander has become the focal point of discussion in the cricket fraternity as he stunned everybody by announcing his decision of stepping down as India’s T20I captain. Kohli has also decided to let go of his post of the leader of the RCB camp after leading the side for as many as eight years.
While Kohli is always in limelight due to his profession and his outstanding performance for India, the cricketer’s personal life has also been a subject of interest for the fans. It is a well-known fact that Virat is happily married to Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.
Who is Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka Sharma
Anushka Sharma is a renowned name in the Hindi film industry. The 32-year-old is rated as one of the top Bollywood actresses and is also known for producing some of the best web series and films. Virat and Anushka met each other for the first time in 2013 while shooting for a tv commercial.
The couple instantly felt a connection with each other and soon got into a relationship. Being in a relationship with one of the finest batters of all time wasn’t an easy task for the Bollywood diva. Time and again Anushka has been subjected to a lot of trolling and hate as the fans often held her responsible for Virat’s poor performance in any game.
However, the couple stood by each other through thick and thin. They finally tied the knot in December 2017 in an extremely private ceremony in Itlay. Known as the power couple of India, Virat and Anushka welcomed their baby girl on January 11, 2021.
