"I am so proud of you"
Anushka Sharma shared a post for her husband Virat Kohli, a day after he quit as the Test captain for the Indian cricket team.
Taking to Instagram on January 16, 2022, Anushka attached pictures to her emotional note and in one of them, she was seen kissing Virat.
Sharing the post, Anushka Sharma recalled Virat Kohli’s journey and wrote:
“I remember the day in 2014 when you told me that you have been made the captain as MS had decided to retire from test cricket.
“I remember MS, you and I having a chat later that day and him joking about how quickly your beard will start turning grey.
“We all had a good laugh about it. Since that day, I’ve seen more than just your beard turning grey. I’ve seen growth. Immense growth.”
Anushka Sharma added: “In 2014 we were so young and naive. Thinking that just good intentions, positive drive and motives can take you ahead in life.
“They definitely do but, not without challenges. A lot of these challenges that you faced were not always on the field.
“But then, this is life right? It tests you in places where you least expect it to but where you need it the most.
“And my love, I am so proud of you for not letting anything come in the way of your good intentions.”
The actress concluded her post with the words: “You are not perfect and have your flaws but then again when did you ever try to conceal that?
“What you did was to always stand up for doing the right thing, the harder thing, always!
“You held on to nothing with greed, not even this position & I know that.
“Because when one holds on to something so tightly they limit themselves and you, my love, are limitless.
“Our daughter will see the learning of these 7 years in the father that you are to her. You did good.”
Reacting to the post, Virat’s sister Bhawna Kohli Dhingra commented:
“Who better than a life partner to say it so perfectly.”
On January 15, 2022, Virat Kohli had shared a post on social media announcing that he is stepping down as the Test captain.
Several celebrities, including Ranveer Singh, Athiya Shetty, Alia Bhatt, Vaani Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor, reacted to the post.
Meanwhile, Anushka Sharma recently unveiled her look as she will essay the role of a cricketer in the Netflix film Chakda Xpress.
Directed by Prosit Roy, the film is inspired by the life of former captain of India national women’s cricket team Jhulan Goswami.
