Virat Kohli is one of the greatest batsmen in the history of Indian cricket. There are many achievements and records to his name, and the list is unstoppable. In 2020, the International Cricket Council declared Virat as the male cricketer of the decade. Born and raised in Delhi, Virat was trained at West Delhi Cricket Academy. With a dream of making his name in the Indian cricket team, he began his career with the Delhi Under-15 team.
And since then, there has been no looking back for this legendary player, considered the GOAT of cricket. Virat Kohli’s professional achievements are known to everyone. However, there are very few details about his personal life on the public platform. Born in a Punjabi Hindu family to Prem Kohli and Saroj Kohli, Virat was close to his father, his biggest cheerleader. Virat has an elder brother, Vikas Kohli and an elder sister, Bhawna Kohli Dhingra.
While we have seen glimpses of Virat with his siblings, Bhawna and Vikas, the ace cricketer also shares a warm bond with his bhabhi (sister-in-law), Chetna Kohli. Let us explore some details about Chetna Dhingra and her rapport with Virat and Anushka.
During Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s wedding reception in Delhi, we got to see his entire family together for the first time. Posing for a family picture with PM Modi, Virat’s bhabhi, Chetna garnered much media attention. It was in 2017 when Chetna tied the knot with Virat’s elder brother, Vikas Kohli, and the couple has a son named Aarav.
Vikas Kohli and Chetna Kohli reside in Gurugram, Haryana, in a lavish house. Despite living in different cities, Chetna shares a good bond with her devrani, Anushka Sharma. They have rarely been spotted at social gatherings, but as per multiple reports, the duo likes looking after one another and never leaves a chance to spend time at family functions.
Chetna is an avid social media user and loves posting glimpses of her family. With more than 9K followers, Virat Kohli’s bhabhi can give tough competition to any Bollywood actress with her beauty. Despite leading such a lavish lifestyle, Chetna maintains her safe distance from the media and likes to keep her family away from the shutterbugs.
The entire world is aware of Virat’s expertise in cricket, but very few know that the cricketer is also an intelligent businessman with multiple business ventures. The handsome cricketer has invested in start-ups like Blue Tribe, Universal Sportsbiz, MPL, Sports Convo, and others. He runs his business empire with the help of his elder brother, Bikas Kohli.
Virat and Vikas are not just brothers, but the two are business partners as well. Vikas runs Virat’s most profitable business, his chain of hotels, the One8 brand. As Vikas has expertise in running restaurants and bars, he looks after the work of the famous restaurant, One8 commune.
One8 Commune is named after Vikas’s younger brother, Virat Kohli, whose jersey number is 18. It runs a chain of restaurants and bars across many parts of the country. As per multiple reports, the total revenue collected by the brand is approximately Rs. 112 crores in 2023.
Apart from being Virat’s business partner, Vikas Kohli is his constant cheerleader and is often seen rooting for his little brother. In fact, Vikas used to accompany Virat to his practice sessions in the initial phase of the cricketer’s career.
Vikas Kohli and Chetna Kohli reside away from Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma, but despite their geographical boundaries, the family share a loving bond with each other.
