WATCH: Virat Kohli humbly asks fans to stop filming videos at the Ashram in Rishikesh
Virat Kohli and his wife Anushka Sharma spent their time by visiting the Dayanand Ji Maharaj’s samadhi at Swami Dayanand Ashram in Rishikesh. The celebrity couple also organised a Bhandara for the priests in the Ashram.
Earlier, along with their daughter Vamika, Virat and Anushka had also visited the Baba Neem Karoli Asharam in the holy city of Vrindavan to offer prayers and seek blessings.
A video from Virat’s visit to Rishikesh has been doing rounds on social media, where the former India captain can be heard requesting his fans not to film inside the Ashram. In the video clip, Virat can be seen surrounded by his fans and signing autographs. The 34-year-old cricketer, while signing a ball for one of his fans, asked the crowd gently to stop recording video and maintain the decorum of the religious place.
‘Bhai Ashram hei ye,’ Virat was heard saying in the clip.
Virat’s kind gesture won many hearts, and the fans on social media also appreciated the cricketer.
Here’s the video:

This year is a crucial one for Virat, as Border Gavaskar Trophy (BGT) 2023 and the ODI World Cup are ahead. The result of the BGT that commences on February 9 in Nagpur will decide whether Team India will play the World Test Championship 2023 finals or not.
On the other hand, Virat would also be eyeing winning the ODI World Cup that is scheduled to take place in India this year. The Delhi cricketer has so far been in great touch and performed exceptionally well against Sri Lanka and New Zealand in the 50-over format at the start of this year.
After his sensational outing, Virat is now only second to legendary Sachin Tendulkar in terms of most centuries in the ODIs. Notably, Kohli has 46 tons in the format, while Sachin has 49 centuries to his name.
The ongoing T20I series of India against New Zealand doesn’t see the participation of Virat, and he will next be in action when India faces Australia in BGT 2023. India’s run machine would surely look to regain his form in the longest format as well and sail his team through against the Aussie challenge.
