Remember we reported a few days ago how Virat Kohli said he had no problems blowing a kiss on field, the way he did? The current Indian cricket captain has now come completely clean on his love life, admitting that he is seeing actor Anushka Sharma.
“It is out in the open ... jo hai sabke saamne hai abhi. We are not hiding anything, we are not trying to hide anything. I don’t want to hide anything,” the 26-year-old said, asking the public to use “common sense” on his much talked about relationship with the actor, who is also 26.
The skipper said it’s obvious that he and Anushka are in a relationship, and people should not be curious about them anymore.
“If you are seen together somewhere and still people ask ‘is it confirmed?’, then it is a matter of common sense. If you know then why ask the same question, that is our basic logic behind it. It is not something wrong apparently for people that we are doing,” he said. Kohli has requested the public to respect their privacy.
“We will not personally like to speak about it because it is something very personal for us and that should be respected. If you’re repeatedly asked the same thing and if it is made a matter of debate, then both the individuals don’t feel it is right,” said Kohli at the launch of his fashion line in Mumbai on Thursday.
Until now, the two had neither confirmed nor denied the relationship.
In an earlier interview, Virat’s ladylove Anushka had told us, “I lead my life very openly. I have never denied or hidden anything. It’s just that I don’t like to talk about my private life. I can’t shout from the rooftop. It’s out there for people to see. But I’ll not comment on it. I also feel that if I talk about my relationship, its sanctity goes away. My relationships, be it with my parents, ­brother, friends or partner, are very pure. I don’t want that to go away.”
