Controversy queen Rakhi Sawant stirred up another one when she recently confessed her love for cricketing genius Virat Kohli. The actress said since his girlfriend Anushka Sharma hasn't been very vocal about her love for him, she would like to seize the opportunity to convey her feelings for the sports star.

"I like Virat a lot and Anushka hasn't confessed publicly as yet. But I am confessing my love for the young cricketer as I love him and since Anushka has not accepted his love openly, therefore, she would like to express her love for the cricketer," India Today quoted her as saying.

Rakhi also went on to take a nasty dig at Anushka's alleged lip job. She reportedly said she would want Virat to make her lips swell the way he did it to the "NH10" actress.

On the other hand, the suave batsman took some time off his packed World Cup schedule to catch his sweetheart's movie. "Just watched #NH10 and i am blown away. What a brilliant film and specially an outstanding performance by my love @AnushkaSharma. SO PROUD:)," he tweeted.

Interestingly, contrary to what Rakhi claims, the gorgeous actress has on a couple of times, gone vocal about her love for Virat. She never spoke elaborately about the equation they share, but she did confess she has been dating him.

"I am in a relationship with him and I have respect for my relationship. The only reason I don't talk about it is because we don't know where to draw the boundary. If someone comes out in the open and tells you that yes I am in a relationship and if you are going to constantly just keep asking questions, it's like my personal space isn't being respected," DNA quoted Anushka as saying.
