Fan following in India is a religion of its own. People do pujas for their superstar’s success, they laugh and cry with their superstars but it is a rare chance to a see superstar having a fan moment of his own. Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli had a fanboy moment of his own when he met his favourite singer Arijit Singh. Kohli took to Twitter and said,”Pure fanboy moment for me. What an amazing person he is. No one has captivated me with their voice like this man. God bless you Arijit.” Kohli had recently appeared on a chat show with Secret Superstar actor Aamir Khan in which he spoke on various topics. However, what really impressed the audience was the moment when the ace batsman shook a leg and actually performed a ‘bhangra’ with Aamir on one of the songs from his movie Rang De Basanti. As many of Virat’s fans know that he nails it when it comes to dancing, but this time watching him dance was indeed a treat to watch. Both Virat and Aamir also shared some interesting facts about their lives that only a few knew earlier. While Aamir said that he has only completed his higher secondary education, Virat revealed that he did not even do that. “I haven’t even done 12th (class). I passed 11th (but) after that I started playing India U-19 when I was 16. You (Aamir) have done 12th, I’ve not even done school,” he said.
Next in the topics of discussion was his nickname, which is ‘Cheeku’. Commenting on this, Virat revealed, “Mr MS Dhoni has made my nickname (Cheeku) famous. Dhoni saab said ‘Cheeku’ once into the stump mic and it was picked up from then on. Now people just call me Cheeku as if they’re my neighbours.” The chatshow came just a day after he led his ‘All Hearts’ football team to a win against the ‘All Stars’.
