Though fame brings a lot of love and admiration, it also keeps a person in the public eye. Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are no strangers to the spotlight but the couple has often expressed their wish of keeping their personal life private. Before embracing parenthood for the first time, Virushka were snapped at their residence, spending quality time with each other and Anushka had called out the publication for going ahead with the story despite specifically requesting them not to. Anushka had written, “Despite requesting the said photographer and the publication, they still continue to invade our privacy. Guys! Stop this right now!”
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are two of the most down-to-earth celebrities, who had not let their fame hamper their humility. It’s a rare quality seen in the affluent but some acts of kindness, away from the camera, in real-life, come as a fresh breath of air. Such celebrities are much needed in this cruel world. Anushka and Virat are one such celeb couple. Giving proof of their humble nature and down-to-earth personality, ex-Indian selector, Sarandeep Singh gave an insight into Virushka’s way of living and it’s quite amusing. In an interview with Sportskeeda, Sarandeep said, "At his home, there are no servants. He and his wife will serve food to everyone. What else do you want? Virat always sits with you, chats with you, and goes out for dinner with you. All the other players have so much respect for him. He's very down-to-earth and strong-willed."
Praising Virat Kohli for being a good listener and debunking his image of being arrogant and hot on field, Sarandeep Singh continued, "On the field, he needs to be that way because he's the captain. He's the one who'll handle the pressure on the ground and make decisions in the heat of the moment. Whenever Virat comes, team meetings used to go on for 1, 1.5 hours. Virat is a good listener. I don't know what people think about him. If you see him in the matches, he's always charged up while batting and fielding. So, it seems like he's always hot and arrogant, and doesn't listen to anyone. But no, he's as down-to-earth as he seems aggressive on the field. In selection meetings, he was so polite. He always used to listen to everyone and then finally come to a decision.” (Also Read: Mira Rajput Kapoor Reveals Her Crush On Instagram And No, It's Not Her Hubby, Shahid Kapoor [VIDEO])
