The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli has said that he would want to act in his own biopic if his wife Anushka Sharma stars in it. Virat was in a conversation with India’s football team skipper, Sunil Chhetri during an Instagram live session. The duo talked on a range of topics, including biopics. Kohli revealed that he will ‘definitely’ do his own biopic if Anushka acts with him, adding that he reckons that he can portray himself on the screen ‘quite well’.
Talking funny dig at it, Kohli said, “With Anushka, I will definitely do the biopic myself. But let me clear up this misunderstanding that I can act. I can, however, act in my own biopic because I can essay my own role quite well. I hope. If anyone else plays the role better than me then bilkul hi nitthala aadmi hu main! (I’d be quite useless!)”
He further elaborated, “That’s what am trying to say. People have this misunderstanding that I can act. But when you have done so many commercials, in that you just need to go from point A to point B and anyone can learn to do that. Acting is an art. I am not an artist. I am a professional cricketer.”
Kohli also credited his wife for making him the person he is now. He said he wasn’t the same person earlier and he feels that Anushka has brought out his compassionate side.
Virat elaborated, “For me, meeting Anushka was that moment when I started to realize that this is not all about me. Life is to look at another person and live like that. She made me realize that the position that I am in, it is so important for me to try and change things around me for the better… If someone comes to me with a problem and if I am in a position to do it, I will always do it.”
The Indian captain further revealed that he was in his comfort-zone before meeting her. However, Anushka made him realize the importance of companionship.
Kohli added, “Before I met her, I was very self-centered, very focused on things I wanted to do, and maintain my comfort zone. When you meet a person that you love, you want to do things for the other person and you have to open up. The constant conversations that we always had were that it is not always about thinking for yourself, it is about companionship.”
