Manushi Chhillar, the newly crowned Miss world met Virat Kohli at the CNN news 18 Indian of the year award show on thursday, November 30. It was a meeting between the most talking Cricketer in the world and the most talking female model in the world. The 20 year old grabbed the headlines when she became the first Indian to win the miss World title since Priyanka Chopra in 2000.
This is what Manushi Chhillar asked Virat Kohli
“You are one of the best batsmen in the world today. You have been such an inspiration and you have really given a lot to society. But there are lot of young people who draw inspiration from you. How would like to give back, especially to children in the field of cricket?” Chhillar, who won the “Special Achievement” award on Thursday, asked Kohli.
This is how Virat Kohli replied
“What’s very important to understand is, when you do what you do, and you express yourself on the field, it has to be genuine, it has to be from the heart. Otherwise, people find out that you are trying to pretend and they can never connect to you. I have never tried to be anyone else. I have always been myself,” Kohli, who was named the “Indian of the Year”, replied.
“I have always mentioned people had a lot of issues with how I was, how I conducted myself. I never had problems with that. The moment I started to think that I need to change, is the only time that I changed” he added
“Everyone has to go through a mutual process to be where they get to in life, to become more mature. What’s very important to understand is that one should never lose their identity, character and personality. Because if you try to be someone else, you can never succeed and you can never inspire others.”
