Former India skipper Virat Kohli has managed to become one of the most successful cricketers in the globe. Coming from a humble background, he and his family faced hardships. His late father, a lawyer by profession, faced difficulties to make ends meet. Not to forget, Virat also mentioned once in a conversation how his late father used to study under street lights.
Meanwhile, the junior Kohli’s IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore has conducted an interview with his friend. She revisited a scrapbook filled by the 2008 U19 World Cup-winning captain. In the book, Virat wrote Bollywood actor, Hrithik Roshan’s name in the Admirable person’s section. In the ambition section, he wrote that he wanted to play for India, which he has achieved by a long way.
Virat Kohli’s childhood friend said, “I’ve a scrapbook which was filled by Virat in 2002/3. There’s a section of what’s your ambitions – Virat mentioned ‘become an Indian cricketer.”
