About almost anyone that follows Cricket knows who Virat Kohli is. The Cricketer from Delhi rose to fame after leading the India U-19 team to world cup glory. He was soon fast tracked into the Indian side and he has never looked back since.
After the retirement of Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli became the cornerstone of India’s batting. Records tumbled every time he picked a bat. Kohli has since racked up runs at an unbelievable average and is arguably the best batsmen of his generation.
However, he is human after all. Kohli, like many of us, has had his moments of weakness that do not reflect well on him. Here are Virat Kohli’s 3 darkest secrets that you probably didn’t know about.
#3) Virat Kohli used a fake name for his wedding
Virat Kohli married actress Anushka Sharma back in December 2017. However, the two had been in a relationship for a long time before that. Their decision to get married was a sudden one and so was their destination of Italy.
Just like their relationship, Virat and Anushka kept their wedding a secret from the media as much as possible. The couple only invited 42 people to their wedding and even went to the extent of using fake names while interacting with the caterers!
Many relatives and friends, including Virat Kohli’s teammates were not invited to the event. The couple desired to keep the event a family affair. However, they later hosted two lavish receptions in both Delhi and Mumbai where everyone they knew was invited.
Coming back to the fake name used, Anushka Sharma said in an interview that the name used by Virat Kohli was perhaps Rahul. Quite the lengths to keep everything a secret. But like they say, all’s well that ends well.
