Indian cricketer Virat Kohli has not only won Anushka Sharma's heart, but also earned millions of fans, who would like to know more about this handsome cricketer.

Here are few lesser known facts about Virat Kohli:

His Childhood Nickname

Many Indians have gone through the nickname phase that sounds embarrassing when we grow up. Similarly, Kohli has a cute but a bit weird nickname – Cheeku.

First Crush

Kohli's first love was not the "PK" actress. It was the glamorous Karisma Kapoor. She was the first childhood crush of the ace cricketer.

Defeated US President Barack Obama

Well, he surely didn't defeat the President Barack Obama in politics. But he topped the International Best Dressed Men defeating the US President.

His Favourite Food

The dashing cricketer is a typical Punjabi who loves non-veg. Thus, Kohli's favourite dish is mutton biriyani and kheer, especially when it is cooked by his mother.

He played Ranji Trophy despite losing his father that very morning

Virat is too passionate and worships cricket. The best example is his decision to play a Ranji Trophy game in spite of suffering the tragic loss of his father that very morning. Kohli scored ninety runs in that match.

Fan Following

Once, Kohli received a love letter from a female fan. The special thing about the letter was that it was written in blood.
