Indian cricket team stylist batsman Virat Kohli finally break his silence about his lady love Anushka Sharma. Virat speak about the his and Anushka’s criticize during the cricket world cup semifinal. He did so in a chat with a leading publication.
Virat Kohli said ”My relationship with Anushka has only become stronger because of that incident. We have gone through this together. We have stuck to each other through this. And, you know what… people don’t realise the importance of someone’s relationship.”
“Anushka has been absolutely supportive throughout. Even after the incident that happened in England when her presence was blown up. She was very, very hurt. She was taken aback. But I always knew I was not doing anything wrong. I am in a relationship. I am 26 years old. I need to figure out where my life is going. If someone is special to me, I am going to protect her. If needed I will go out of the way to make it work because I know that will make me a happy person. You know, cricket is six hours. You have 18 more hours during the day. That’s your normal life. People don’t understand that we too have a life outside the cricket field. I never for even once thought that I was doing anything wrong. I backed myself. So, for the Australia tour when wives and partners were given permission to stay with the cricketers, I spoke to Ravi bhai (Shastri), I spoke to the BCCI secretary. I asked for permission from them. I told them Sir, this is what I need, this is what I want. So if that permission is being given, I can peacefully be committed to do what I need to do and not worry… because it’s very difficult for both people, me and her, not to have a clear picture.” he added.
Virat termed his relationship with Anushka as a serious one and talked about how he is feeling happy and stable with his personal and professional life,
“I am 26. I will be 27 soon. There comes a time in your life when you actually start feeling very stable. And everything that is happening in my life now, all that makes me a very happy and stable person. I am into a serious relationship, I am getting the leadership job of the Indian Test team, I am getting to lead RCB. Life gives you signals whether you are heading into right direction. It’s all a journey. And the signals I am getting is that I am on the right path. That’s why I am feeling happy. Right now, I am in a phase of life where I actually feel like getting very stable in life. When I am not playing cricket, I am spending time with Anushka and I feel very calm and stable. I enjoy the smallest of things like walking around or just sitting for a cup of coffee. There is no urgency to do something exciting or doing something very flamboyant to show people that I am young and I can do this or do that.”
