In his latest interview with Sportskeeda, Singh opened up about the celebrity couple’s down-to-earth nature, and said, “At his home, there are no servants.

He’s very down-to-earth and strong-willed.” Also Read - LIVE IND vs SA 3rd ODI Score: Two Early Wickets Put India on Top
“On the field, he needs to be that way because he’s the captain. He’s the one who’ll handle the pressure on the ground and make decisions in the heat of the moment,” he said. Also Read - IPL 2022 Auction: KKR to CSK; Franchises Who Could Contemplate Bidding For 2-Time World Cup-Winner Sreesanth
During the same interview, Sarandeep further spoke about Kohli’s true ‘humble’ nature off the field, and especially during team selection meetings. “Whenever Virat comes, team meetings used to go on for 1, 1.5 hours. Virat is a good listener. I don’t know what people think about him,” he said.
“If you see him in the matches, he’s always charged up while batting and fielding. So it seems like he’s always hot and arrogant, and doesn’t listen to anyone. But no, he’s as down-to-earth as he seems aggressive on the field. In selection meetings, he was so polite. He always used to listen to everyone and then finally come to a decision,” added Sarandeep.
Kohli and Anushka got married in December 2017 in Tuscany, Italy. The couple was blessed with their first child, daughter Vamika, on January 11 this year.
