Who Was Virat Kohli’s Favourite Bollywood Actress When He Wasn’t Dating Anushka Sharma?


Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli is dating Bollywood diva Anushka Sharma from past couple of years. Virat and Anushka are arguably the most loved celebrity couple in India. Both are superstars in their respective fields and have massive fan following across the nation.

Time and again, Virat and Anushka have shown that they share a beautiful bond that is a perfect blend of love and friendship. There was a time when the troll brigade of the internet targeted Anushka for Virat’s poor performance on the field and made insulting jokes and memes on her. But, Virat Kohli came out in the open and slammed them through his social networking accounts.

However, way back in 2012, when Virat Kohli had just started his international career, Anushka Sharma wasn’t his favourite Bollywood actress. In an interview with Filmfare.com, young Kohli said that “Kareena Kapoor is the No. 1 heroine in Bollywood”.

“Among the yesteryear actresses, Rekha wins hands down. She was undoubtedly the sexiest. As for today’s B-town actresses, Katrina Kaif is my favourite. I also think she is the most talented actress at the moment. However, I think that Kareena Kapoor is the No. 1 heroine. She beats Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra in the race,” Kohli said in an interview to Filmfare.com

Virat also said that Bollywood and cricket have always been attracted to each other. Talking about favourite cricket movie, the Delhi boy rated Aamir Khan’s Lagaan as the best movie based on the sport.

“Bollywood has always had a fascination for cricket. Lagaan is by far the best Hindi film based on the sport.”
