From remaining tight-lipped to keeping ‘just friends’ stance, they tried it all in the start, but soon their visible chemistry made them accept their relationship status. In November 2014, while playing in a match against Sri Lanka, Virat openly blew a flying kiss towards Anushka, and that said it all. What followed was just a series of open acceptances from the lovebirds. While talking about Virat, in an interview in early 2015, Anushka openly said, “I am in a relationship with him and I have respect for my relationship.” The pair split for a brief period at the start of 2016 before rekindling their romance after deciding to give their relationship a second chance.

Virat Kohli made headlines for dating Brazilian model and actress Izabelle Leite. Izabelle has been a part of Bollywood movies like ‘Sixteen’ and 'Purani Jeans'. And in one of her interviews, Izabelle did actually open up about having dated India’s current Test captain for a while. Back in 2014, she admitted: “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.”

It was also reported that they consciously avoided meeting in public as they wanted to keep their relationship discreet. But the news of their alleged relationship was soon followed by the news of their break-up. It was rumoured that their busy schedules caused their split.

Virat allegedly dated Kannada actress Sanjana in 2009. It was reported in some sections of the media that the pair hit it off instantly and were almost inseparable in Bengaluru's party circuit. However, a few years down the line Sanjana denied the affair and said: “Yes, I have been seen with Virat Kohli many a times. But that does not mean that I am in love with him. He is just a friend. I don’t know how and from where these rumour about our alleged love affair have emanated. We have not yet discussed anything and we are just roaming around as friends."
