Virat Kohli has almost become a cult hero, and he enjoys a great fan following all over the world. He is famous not only for piling on runs on the field. He has become a role model for the youth for his charity work and ethics off the field as well. While cricket fans are in awe of the Indian captain’s magic on the field, Bollywood actress Richa Chadda wants youngsters to become ‘gentlemen’ like Virat Kohli in terms of respecting women.

Richa Chadda on Virat

The Gangs of Wasseypur actor took to Facebook to appreciate how Virat stood by his girlfriend also a Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma when fans were lashing out at her with trolls and jokes.


“Look at Virat Kohli, Captain of Indian Cricket Team. Cricket, is essentially, a gentleman’s game. And Virat Kohli, in true sense, is living upto it. When world was spewing venom against his woman, blaming her for his poor performance on field, this man, without caring about anything, jumped to her defence. That’s a mark of a true gentleman!” Richa wrote on Facebook

Men fail to show respect to women as Virat does

She further lamented the fact that it was sad that some people who idolise the Indian batting star, fail to show same behaviour towards women as their idol does

“Unfortunately, many men who idolize him, worship him for his attitude on & off field, don’t think twice before offending a woman. Why can’t more men emulate Virat Kohli? Is it too much to ask for?” the post added.

Virat and Anushka were rumoured to be together when they were seen in many parties together. Things reportedly went bad for some reason when their relationship hit a brief turmoil. The same reports now claim that they come back together in February.
