Virat Kohli regrets never having the chance to speak with Lata Mangeshkar and says it would have been amazing to do so
Virat Kohli, the star batsman for India, is one of the most well-known cricketers in the world. Fans of Kohli from all over the world would do everything to get the chance to meet him or have dinner with him. But there are those persons even the former captain of India fawns over. In a recent video posted to his social media accounts, Kohli laments that he was unable to meet Lata Mangeshkar, a great vocalist from India.
When asked which historical female person he would most want to have dinner with, Kohli said that Mangeshkar, who is known for having over 30,000 songs recorded in 14 different Indian languages, and it would have been wonderful to meet her. In February 2022, Mangeshkar died.
In the video, Kohli stated, "I never had the opportunity to meet Lataji, so it would have been fantastic to have a chat and learn a little bit more about her life and about her journey."
The famous athlete was also asked additional intriguing questions, and he answered to each one. When asked who in history he would want to be marooned on an island with, he hesitated before mentioning boxing great Muhammad Ali.
He was asked what advise he would like to offer his 16-year-old self at the beginning of the interview. The 34-year-old said, "Learn more about the world, widen your head a little more, there is life outside Delhi as well.
The right-handed hitter is now on vacation after being rested for the home T20I series against New Zealand, in terms of his cricketing commitments. However, when India hosts Australia for four Test matches at home, he will be essential to the Men in Blue's hopes in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. After a dip, Kohli is back to his run-scoring best in the limited-overs format, but his recent Test performance hasn't been fantastic.
The Royal Challengers Bangalore player, whose last hundred came in the game's most pure version back in November 2019, will be motivated to score heavily in the Test series.
