Indian skipper Virat Kohli is arguably the most popular cricketer in the world at the moment. He has a huge fan base and everything that he does makes the headline. His personal life is not unknown to all either. He has been dating Bollywood diva Anushka Sharma for quite some time now. But, in times of trouble, who was the go to man for Kohli when it came to relationship advice?

Well, the answer was revealed recently by the man himself. Kohli, in an episode of ‘Breakfast with Champions’ revealed that former Indian pacer Zaheer Khan was the relationship advisor for him. Virat Kohli and Anushka have been dating for almost four years now. However, they started admitting their love for one another only recently. Reflecting back at the entire episode of happenings, Kohli recalled that he was in serious conundrums over how to handle his relationship when it came to the media.


The media were keeping a constant eye on him and his vacations, and that certainly did not make things good for the Indian cricketer. He remarked that it was during this time that Zaheer Khan advised him to be honest to himself and not hide anything. He mentioned that hiding things will only complicate the case even further.

Virat is absolutely humbled to have received these words of wisdom from Zaheer Khan. He also spoke about Anushka Sharma, saying that the lady has been very supportive in the tough times that he has had in his career.

“Luckily, Zaheer was one of the first guys I spoke to about this. He said, ‘don’t try to hide whatever you are doing. It increases your stress, and then you are in a relationship. You are not committing a crime. I am actually very grateful that my first interaction about this was with ZaK,” Virat Kohli mentioned.
