Virat is the most loved celebrity among Indian youngsters. Indian captain recently married Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma. Virushka is the most talked about topic on internet, every picture posted by the couple goes viral. India wins if Virat plays well, loses if Virat cannot perform. It is all about Virat now, he is the star.

Madame Tussauds Delhi is expecting increased number of visitors thanks to Kohli’s inclusion. Madame Tussauds Delhi already has the wax figures of Sachin Tendulkar, Ronaldo, but the museum is yet to find popularity among travellers like its London counterpart.
Virat met with the wax statue artists and they took 200 measurements of his different body parts. Fans were not happy with the wax statues of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Shah Rukh Khan, these celebrities’ statues looked nothing like them, so hopefully Virat’s wax double will not repeat the same mistakes, as expectations are very high here.
