On the occasion of renaming Feroz Shah Kotla stadium after Jaitley, the power couple was seen sitting next to each other. We're all aware of how late finance minister Arun Jaitley visited Virat Kohli's house after his father's demise.
Dev said that whatever is done for Jaitley, who was the former president of the Delhi & District Cricket Association (DDCA), is not enough as he has done a lot for the game. "Don't know how to address this as my family, wife, brother, sister-in-law are here", Kohli said on the sidelines of a glittering function held at the Weightlifting Hall of the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium. Kohli also thanked his family and his childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma for his contributions over the years.
Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli are quite literally the cutest couple of Bollywood. I remember clinging to the gallery grill asking for Javagal Srinath's autograph. "So today to have a pavilion in my name at the same stadium is surreal and a great honour", the Indian run-machine said.
A short video and an animation film on Kohli's journey from being an U-19 player to India captain was also shown. While Home Minister Amit Shah was the chief guest, Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju was the Guest of Honour for the ceremony. "Virat is a special player and he deserves this kind of a recognition". Reportedly, a special stand was also named after Kohli.
"Arun Jaitleyji was DDCA President for 14 years and I was the Vice President". Whenever we needed direction, we would help us. The biggest help he did was to rebuilt the Kotla stadium. "So it's befitting to name it in his honour", he said.
