Virat Kohli, returned to India after the first Test and has been on paternity leave, granted by BCCI upon request. He has been by the side of his wife Anushka Sharma since then. In an interview to ESPN Virat said that he wants no part of his achievements, career to be in the house where his kid grows up.
The couple in separate interviews has made clear that they do not want their child to grow under the ‘public eye’. Anusha has said that she will be the primary caregiver in the first few years as she is self-employed and I can decide when she wants to works and how to take up films. Anushka’s production house released two web series, Paatal Lok on Amazon Prime Video, and Bulbbul on Netflix last year.
