Here is what Virat Kohli said during the show:
On relationship with Anushka Sharma: I love that she’s honest and always caring. I don’t hate but one thing I dislike is that she’s always 5-7 minutes late. She’s been with me throughout and we have a great understanding. She’s improved me as a person in last 3-4 years that we’ve been together.
On nickname ‘Cheeku’: During the Under 17, I had a haircut due to which my ears looked big. So everyone called me ‘Cheeku’ (rabbit). Eventually MS Dhoni started & stump mic did it’s job.
KL Rahul on Kohli’s good and bad qualities of Kohli: GOOD: Fitness, improvement in his game and more responsible. BAD: He likes to show off, roams shirtless in the changing room, and always on the phone
On meeting Gurmeet Ram Rahim: The funniest part of it all was him saying ‘Jagdish Nehra’ and ‘Jousuf Pathan’.
On Aamir Khan’s favourite movies: Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikandar, 3 Idiots and yes PK as well. (To which Aamir responded: Haan woh toh pasand aayegi hi! (Ofcourse you would like that movie!). [‘PK’ featured Anushka as the lead actress”]
On 2011 World Cup Final: Mujhe darr lag raha tha Malinga yorker nahi daale, already I was nervous. But after 2-3 balls, I settled down. (I was afraid of facing Lasith Malinga’s yorker. I was already nervous but I settled down after a few deliveries)
On upbringing and family: I was the third child, so I was free to do whatever I wanted to. My brother used to drop me for games and my father used to watch.
