“One day near the Madan Lal Academy, there was a big poster of a movie or an ad. He saw that and said, ‘One day I’ll become a very big person and I’ll marry a heroine.’ Now you see, as per destiny that happened. Now, when I think of it, it feels great,” she told the RCB social media team in the video.

Kohli and his friend – Shall Sondhi – were both part of the cricket coaching academy under Rajkumar Sharma and he revealed that the ex-RCB skipper was clear that he wanted to be an international cricketer. The video also showed Sharma who reminisced about Kohli’s formative years.

“On May 30, 1998, he came to me with his brother and his father. Within a few days we could see that he was very different from others, very active, very hyper and very naughty guy. He was very determined and dedicated, he wanted to dominate from Day 1. He had tremendous self-belief that I can do anything. Shalaj and Virat were very thick friends from my academy,” Rajkumar Sharma said.
