The event was organised to rename the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in New Delhi after former finance minister Arun Jaitley, who was also the president of the District Cricket Association (DDCA) as well as the vice-president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
At the event, when the speaker remembered an incident regarding Jaitley and Kohli’s late father, the cricketer and his wife could not help but shed a tear as they got emotional hearing the anecdote from Virat’s younger days.
Virat tried to hold back his tears, was consoled by Anushka, as she held his hand firmly and kissed his hand for comfort and strength.
At the event, DDCA president Rajat Sharma recalled an incident wherein Jaitley had visited Virat’s home in Delhi, after his father’s demise. At the time, Virat was in the under-19 team. Virat had a match to play and Sharma shared how he continued with the match despite his father’s demise.
Looking at that, Jaitley had praised the cricketer and predicted that he would go on to become a big name and that there would be no one bigger than him in the history of Delhi cricket, as per a news report.
The very mention of Virat’s father made both Anushka and Virat emotional, who tried and held back their tears.
