New Delhi, November 22: It was his debut ‘straight drive’. Virat Kohli, the cricketing prodigy, at one stroke has eliminated all scope of ‘betting’ about his relationship with ‘Band Baja Barat’ fame heroine Anushka Sharma.
With ‘pressure’ mounting, Virat uncorked his vault of emotions and served it with love to all and sundry, quite like his Pepsi ad. Virat bared his heart thus: ‘It is out in the open (jo hai, so sabke samne hai).We are not hiding anything, we are not trying to hide anything.’ He spoke about his relationship in so many words and left nothing to imagination.
So, striptease about duo is passé now. Virat-Anushka relationship is in full Monty. And now Virat Kohli is the Captain of Anushka Sharma’s body beautiful in broad day light. And, touchwood, if his bat does not take the inner edge of Anushka, he will be Anushka’s captain for all time to come. With Anushka ‘Down Under’ Virat Kohli, cricket fans can fancy fireworks by him in Australia.
And they can also expect his kisses galore towards Anushka in iconic Melbourne stadium as he did in Hyderabad after his half century. Anushka was in the stands and Kohli drove a breezy kiss towards her.
Going by the look of his guns blazing on the pitch (Winning series 5-0 against Sri Lanka under his captaincy), Anushka is likely to prove his aphrodisiac for his Aussi tour. It looks as if Virat Kohli is out to prove Anushka Sharma is a force multiplier for him rather than being dampener. He more than compensated the initial Anushka ‘jinx’.
But the jury is still out on them. Despite clearly opening up, the question remains: will they finally go down the aisle? Will torrid affair between Uttarakhand belle and Punjabi lad consummate into nuptial? Will Band Baja ‘Varat’ morph into Band Baja Barat?
So far only one marriage between a cricketer and a filmi heroine has been successful- between Nawab Pataudi and Sharmilla Tagore. Azarhuddin married Sangeeta Bijaalani but it did not last. Sparks flew of course between Yuvraj and Deepika but they proved a chimera.
