Virat Kohli slept off on Anushka Sharma's film sets after flying to see her shoots, Sunil Chhetri reveals in live chat
India football star Sunil Chhetri and India cricket captain Virat Kohli on Sunday had a one-hour long candid conversation on Instagram live chat show Eleven On Ten hosted by the former. During their conversation, Chhetri came up with some best anecdotes and threw a couple of googlies at Virat Kohli that left the India skipper stumped.
The two talked about a range of topics, starting from Virat Kohli's cricketing career, the role of his father in that journey, his obsession with eating right, and others. Chhetri also asked the India skipper a series of questions related to his personal life regarding wife Anuskha Sharma.
Chhetri revealed an incident when Virat Kohli felt asleep right on Anushka Sharma's movie set while he went to meet her. Prior to that, the Indian football great said how Anushka Sharma has been a supportive wife to Kohli watching all his matches, be it a Test match where the Indian superstar is not batting.
When puzzled about this, Kohli tried to defend himself and said, "I reached in the night, went to the shoot directly. But absolutely jet leg will kick in. So when I felt sleepy, I did not get the hotel room, I slept on the film set only."
However, when Kohli was trying to cover it up, Anushka Sharma was heard saying, "liar" in the background.
Chhetri shared another such incident when Virat Kohli did the same when Anushka was shooting for a movie in Prague.
"When did I sleep in Prague when? My only weakness in life is sleep and when I am jet legged I can not stay awake. Actors have already such tough schedules and it was my bad luck that I went on her shoots jet legged both the times. What can I do now?
Chhetr's questions did not end just there, he then recounted another episode from Anushka and Virat’s Bhutan trip last year when Kohli left his wife behind during their cycling expedition when somebody called his name from the crowd.

He first asked him about the time he flew to London for one of Anushka’s shoots but ended up falling asleep right on sets in just a few minutes. Sunil said how Anushka always plays the supportive wife when he is playing. She ‘watches entire test matches even when he isn’t batting’ but Virat could not even stay awake.
"We went there very discreetly and there were a lot of Indian tourists. So our guide was with Anushka, and I was on bike because I was cycling fast. So there was crowd there and someone looked at me and shouted that 'he looks like Virat Kohli'. I don't know what happened to me that I cycled so fast and when I looked back, she was not there," Kohli said in his defense
"When I realized Anushka was left behind, I made a U-turn. And she acted as if she does not know me. I was saying sorry and she was not even looking at me."
