According to a leading sports website, on the show Kohli opened up about his relationship with Anushka Sharma. Once Aamir asked Virat about what he likes and dislikes about Anushka. To which, he replies as she is always honest and extremely caring and has improved him as a person over the past three to four years. On the other hand, he dislikes her being irregular with the timings as she is always 5-7 minutes late.

Later, Aamir also asked Kohli to mention his favourite movies of him to which Kohli answered, ‘Joh Jeeta Wohi Sikander’, ‘3 Idiots’, and ‘PK’. Aamir was quick to reply, that he would obviously like ‘PK’ since Anushka was the heroine in the movie.

Interestingly, he also revealed a fact about his nickname ‘Cheeku’, Virat said: “During the Under 17, I had a haircut due to which my ears looked big. So everyone called me ‘Cheeku’ (rabbit). Eventually MS Dhoni started & stump mic did it’s job”.

The channel network airing this Diwali special has big plans in place for the promotions. Being planned as a mega show, the channel network is set to make a roadblock across various channels, to make the maximum of the unique opportunity at hand. Meanwhile, as of now Aamir has put ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ shoot on hold to promote ‘Secret Superstar’ while Virat and his team are on a break following the recently concluded India-Australia ODI series.
