Virat Kohli ducks questions on Anushka Sharma
Mumbai: India cricketer Virat Kohli’s aggression is not confined to the cricket field, he talks like he bats – smooth and straight. Of late, people have been talking about his rumoured split with Bollywood star Anushka Sharma. On Tuesday, the 27-year-old — at a promotional event for Tissot — snapped at a journalist who asked him to define relationships.
“I am not a relationship counsellor. What kind of question is that? I think you have asked me the wrong question,” he said.
His answer, an indication that he prefers to keep his personal life under wraps, did not stop the speculation.
Kohli, who became the new brand ambassador for the age-old Swiss watch company, dealt with another bouncer when asked to name an actor from the film industry to whom he would gift the watch.
The cricketer, smart enough to understand the hints, replied: “I would gift it to my family, it could be somebody from the cricket team too. Let’s be professional, do not swing things in other direction.”
However, he agreed that he overdid things on the cricket field at times.
“I would like to correct many things if possible. On the cricket field, I have crossed the line quite a few times but one commits a mistake and then, learns,” he added.
With the ICC World T20 approaching, his fans would be keen to see him in full flow. The cricketer concluded saying that India tries to do well in all conditions irrespective of the pitches.
