The recipient of two National Film Awards and eight Filmfare awards, Anupam Kher is an avid follower of cricket. He enjoys watching the sport and often keeps a track of the developments in the sport. In a recent tweet, the veteran actor named his favourite cricketer from the current generation. Given his close proximity to the former Indian skipper MS Dhoni, you might think that Anupam’s favourite cricketer is the wicket-keeper batsman himself.
Anupam has worked in close quarters with MS Dhoni during the shooting of the film ‘MS Dhoni: The Untold Story’. He played the role of the 37-year-old’s father in the film and must have had many interactions with the cricketer. However, it is quite surprising that Anupam Kher hasn’t named the legend his favourite cricketer.
The favourite cricketer of Anupam Kher is…
The Bollywood actor named the current Indian skipper Virat Kohli as his favourite cricketer. During an interactive session with the fans, one person asked the 63-year-old to name his pick from the current generation of players. Anupam Kher had no hesitations in replying Kohli’s name.
He noted that he likes Virat Kohli’s attitude and his game. “
@imVkohli. I like his attitude and his game.:),” wrote the lead actor in ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’.

At a very young age, Virat Kohli has scaled massive heights. He has got numerous records to his name and is expected to break many more. The aggressive character on the cricket field has led India to many memorable triumphs in recent times. The Indian skipper, who has currently been rested, is expected to be back for the home series against Australia that kicks off later this month. However, he might not play all the games so as to manage the workload before the World Cup 2019, which gets underway on May 30 in England and Wales.
