There’s nothing so rare about the talks of a cricketer being in a relationship with a Bollywood star, but coming out and talking about it openly? Then the memories become very faint.
Enter Virat Kohli, who turns 29 today, as he has shied away from expressing his feelings for actress Anushka Sharma despite not being very vocal about.
In a recently interview with Gaurav Kapur on ‘Breakfast With Champions’, Kohli also spoke about a cricketer who was the first person he spoke to about Anushka and his advice in the matters of relationship worked for Kohli.
Kohli spoke about Team India’s former pacer Zaheer Khan and credited him as a “very big reason behind me not hiding my relationship”.
Kohli told Gaurav Kapur, “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,” the birthday boy added.
In the interview, which is available on YouTube, Kohli touched on many points of his personal life regarding Anushka even explaining how her advice to keep off social media helped him.
