This was the first public appearance that the couple made after Virat Kohli spoke his heart about his lady love on Breakfast with Champions hosted by Gaurav.
He attributed his girlfriend Anushka Sharma for making him a better man.
Virat spoke, “I’ve got to thank my lady luck. You’ve known me since before; you know I did not have any sense then. Ever since ‘a lady’ has come into my life, she has taught me a lot of things. I’ve learnt a lot in the past four years. I have become more sensible. She has taught me how to be patient. Also, how to utilize potential to the fullest at whatever point you are in your life. The flip in my attitude has been because of her”
The couple first met during filming a commercial. On several occasions the couple has made it obvious that they are together but have never publicly acknowledged their relationship. The interview was one of the rare occasions that he has mentioned Anushka. The power couple has been each other’s rock through many ups and downs, both in professional and personal life.
