Virat Kohli finally declares he is dating Anushka Sharma

At last, Indian cricketer Virat Kohli accepts dating Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma. In various occasions, the couple were spotted together but never came open about their relationship until recently when the ace batsman openly declared that he is seeing Anushka but at the same time requested media to respect their privacy.

"It is out in the open (jo hai sabke saamne hai abhi). We are not hiding anything, we are not trying to hide anything. I don't want to hide anything.

But if you get repeatedly asked on the same thing and if it is made a matter of debate then both the individuals don't feel it is right," said Kohli at the launch of his fashion line yesterday.

Kohli said that it is obvious now that they were dating and questions should not be raised frequently as it is a personal matter.

"If you are seen together somewhere and still people ask 'is it confirmed?', then it is a matter of common sense. If you know then why ask the same question, that is our basic logic behind it. It is not something wrong apparently for people that we are doing.

"We will not personally like to speak about it because it is something very personal for us and that should be respected by the media and everyone else as well," added Kohli.

Off late, Virat and Anushka headed for an undisclosed location. The lovebirds were spotted at Mumbai airport.  Virat Kohli looked dapper in a blue shirt, jeans and white sneakers while  the 'PK' star was seen in a white tee, blue denims, and a stole over her shoulders, walking calmly without hiding from the papparazzi.

Their relationship first came into forefront when the two were snapped holding hands together at Auckland, New Zealand in February. Before there was buzz that Virat was seen at Anushka's residence in Mumbai.

During the promotional event of 'PK' when media asked Anushka about Virat, she blushed. Rumors also spread about their impending engagement and wedding.
