Not just the entire cricket fandom of the country but even ace player Virat Kohli himself is eagerly looking forward to the release biopics of sport legends Mohd Azharuddin and MS Dhoni and also Sachin Tendulkar.
“Everyone knows who I idolised as a kid. He (Sachin) will always remain my idol because of who I came into cricket. I am very eagerly looking forward to the biopic on Sachin Tendulkar. I have idolised him. That will be something which will be very interesting (to watch),” said the 27-year-old Kohli.

He was talking at the launch of Virat FanBox, conceptualised by Singapore-based start-up firm PrivyPlex. The ‘fanbox’ will include a Moto G Turbo smartphone and a one-year subscription to Virat’s exclusive fan club, aimed at the cricketer’s fans and followers.
Kohli, at the same time, said that he was also keen to see the other two biopics.
“I’m looking forward to all three, the one on MS which will be a different one, and on Mr Azhar as well,” he added.
Kohli, however, refused to take any questions from the media on cricket or his personal life while also staying away from commenting on the controversy over Bollywood star Salman Khan’s nomination by the Indian Olympic Association as the brand ambassador of the country’s Rio Games contingent.

“That’s not for me to comment on when I don’t know the details. It won’t be proper for me to comment on this platform,” he flatly said.
“Flying Sikh” Milkha Singh and Olympic medalists - two-time podium-finisher Sushil Kumar and Yogeshwar Dutt - have opposed the move of the IOA to nominate Khan as the goodwill ambassador of the Indian contingent to Rio yesterday.
When asked about his personal life and relationship with Bollywood starlet Anushka Sharma by a female scribe, Kohli retorted, “That’s for none to know. I do not have to comment on it. How is your personal life and how is it going?”

“It’s an important opportunity for the fans to interact with me and the content will also be most exclusive, not available on other social media platforms,” said the cricketer about the digital initiative that connects him with the fans.
