"She is very smart and sensible. I know her well personally. She would make a good leader and I would be happy to support her if she needs it," he told IANS here.
"I am in support of a good leader and whoever can do good work," Kohli asserted, clarifying he is not linked to any political outfit.
Kohli was in the city to promote his forthcoming film Jal, the story of a 'Bakka', a person gifted with a special ability to find water in the desert.
The film also stars Kirti Kulhari, Tannishtha Chatterjee, Saidah Jules, Mukul Dev, Yashpal Sharma and Ravi Gossain.
Jal recently competed at the Busan International Film Festival, and was also part of the Indian Panorama section at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa.
With the backdrop of water scarcity, the film tells a complex and intriguing story of love, relationships, enmity, deceit and circumstances that bring about the dark side of humans.
Kohli and Kulhari also participated in a "waterless" Holi event at the PC Chandra Gardens here to highlight conservation of water.
