Virat Kohli is one of the biggest Indian batsmen of all time.

Now happily married to Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, Virat Kohli had a lot of young girls swearing their undying love for him.

In one of the old interviews when he was asked which Bollywood actress he would like to see coming into cricket, young Virat had said that he would like to see Genelia D’Souza. When asked why the right-handed batsman said that because Genelia is cute.

Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma married in 2017. Before meeting the Sultan actress, Virat allegedly dated many young girls and seemed to have a special liking for celebs from the entertainment industry.

His name was first linked with Miss India 2007-Sarah Jane Dias. It was the time when Virat was just gaining limelight as he had captained the U-19 cricket team and was making his debut in the senior Indian cricket team.

After their breakup, Virat’s name was also linked with South Indian superstar Tamannaah Bhatia. However, the Himmatwala actress denied all these linkup rumours saying that the two spoke only four words to each other.

Over the years, he has been linked with many other actresses like Brazilian actress Izabelle Leite, and South Indian actress Sanjana Galrani.
