Virat Kohli is the most-followed Asian on Instagram, who boasts over 268 million Instagram followers. He is a brilliant batsman, a doting father, and a heartthrob of several people globally. Nowadays, he is keeping himself busy by showcasing his cricket skills in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. While he is busy, he managed to spare time for a promotional event. In the event, journalist Gaurav Kapur wondered what’s the secret behind Kohli’s success. Here is what he said.

Virat Kohli outlines what ‘struggle’ and ‘success’ means to him

Virat Kohli told Gaurav Kapoor that he will never use the words ‘struggle’ and ‘sacrifice’ to outline his life journey so far. Virat said, “Honestly, by sitting and speaking from the position I am, I cannot use the words struggle and sacrifice. For me, there has been no struggle and no sacrifice. I am doing what I love.”

He added, “Struggle unki hoti hai jinko do waqt ki roti nahi mil rahi. Humari yeh struggle nahi hai. Aap apne hard work ko struggle bol kar usko glorify kar sakte ho. Aapko koi nahi bol raha hai gym jaane ko. But you have to feed your family naa. (The struggle is for those who are not getting two square meals. This isn't my struggle. You can glorify your hard work by calling it a struggle. Like for example, no one is stopping you from going to the gym. But you must not forget to feed your family.)”

“I am grateful and privileged that I am getting to do what I always loved. I play a sport. It is my profession. If you really think about the problems in people’s lives, think about it this way. You cannot compare a person playing Test Series to a person who does not have a roof over his head,” Virat wrapped up the conversation. Claps thundered in the crowd after Virat spoke like a true legend. 

These comments by Virat Kohli come at a time when his team, Royal Challengers Bengaluru, is not performing well in the tournament. Meanwhile, Virat’s wife, actress Anushka Sharma is back in India. Virat and her kids, Vamika and Akaay are also in the country.
