Anushka Sharma pens a note for Virat Kohli as he steps down as the Test captain
Indian cricketer Virat Kohli announced on January 15 that he would be stepping down as the captain of the Test team. The moment the announcement was made, reactions on social media went over the roof. His wife and actress Anushka Sharma has also written something special for him. The actress shared a long and heartfelt note for her husband and also shared two pictures to express her feelings.
She wrote- "I remember the day in 2014 when you told me that you have been made the captain as MS had decided to retire from test cricket. I remember MS, you amp I having a chat later that day amp him joking about how quickly your beard will start turning grey. We all had a good laugh about it. Since that day, I've seen more than just your beard turning grey. I've seen growth. Immense growth. Around you amp within you. And yes, I am very proud of your growth as the captain of the Indian National Cricket team amp what achievements the team had under your leadership. But I'm more proud of the growth you achieved within you."
She added, "In 2014 we were so young amp naive. Thinking that just good intentions, positive drive amp motives can take you ahead in life. They definitely do but, not without challenges. A lot of these challenges that you faced were not always on the field. But then, this is life right? It tests you in places where you least expect it to but where you need it the most. And my love, I am so proud of you for not letting anything come in the way of your good intentions. You led by example amp gave winning on field every ounce of your energy to the extent that after some losses I've sat next to you with tears in your eyes, while you wondered if there's still something more you could have done. This is who you are amp this is what you expected from everyone. You've been unconventional amp straightforward. Pretence is your foe amp this is what makes you great in my eyes amp the eyes of your admirers."
Coming to Sharma, her return to the movies has been hugely speculated and anticipated by her fans and industry alike and we can now confirm that Anushka is set to sign about three premium projects!
