Indian captain Virat Kohli turns 31 today. Once consider an eligible bachelor, Virat broke the hearts of many when he married his long time girlfriend Anushka Sharma in December 2017. However, before marrying her, the Indian captain reportedly dated few of the Bollywood divas, here’s a look at them-
1- Virat Kohli-Tamannah Bhatia
Way before being the fitness icon of the Indian team, Virat dated Bollywood actress Tamannah Bhatia in 2012. The duo met each other during an ad shoot of a popular smartphone brand and were said to be dating each other since then. The news of their link-up didn’t got the recognition and it soon ended.
The reason of their separation is believed to be another Bollywood actress Izabelle Leite, who came in-between the two of them in early part of 2013.

This Brazilian model revealed that she was in a relationship with the Indian cricketer and it was pretty serious. “Virat was one of the first Indian friends I had when I came to India. We were dating for quite a while. We were together for almost two years. But we didn’t want to make it public. So yeah, Virat and I did have a relationship.”
Soon after the breakup with Leite, Virat started dating Anushka Sharma.
Way before he started dating Tamannah Bhatia, the Indian skipper was hooked up with Kannada actress Sanjjanaa. He enjoyed playing Tennis and going for long-drives with her but none of the news were confirmed and it turned out to be a short time affair.

Virat was reportedly linked with this former Miss India of 2007. It was said that Virat invited her to cheer him in 2011 world cup but the actress could not make it due to promotional events. The affair between the two ended when Virat left for West Indies tour in July 2011.
1- Ritika Sajdeh
We have came across an article of Indian Express from 2013, which states that Indian captain Virat Kohli was on a movie date with Rohit Sharma’s wife Ritika Sajdeh. The incident happened after the men in blue returned from 2013 Zimbabwe tour.
Ritika was seen hiding her face on seeing the cameras around her and tried to cover her face but it all went in vain. It is reported that Virat met Ritika in IPL season 2010, even before she met Rohit Sharma and became his manager.
