Unlike other sports stars, Virat Kohli is relatively an outspoken guy on social media.
The cricketer has always stood up for what he feels right (like when he slammed fans when they trolled his girlfriend Anushka Sharma, calling her the reason for a dip in his performance.)
But on the occasion of International Women's Day, Kohli took to Instagram to share a message about two of the most important women in life - his mother, Saroj Kohil and girlfriend, Anushka Sharma.
Here's the brief but profound message that he posted on his Instagram account:
"Happy women's day to every woman out there, but specially to the two strongest women in my life. My mom for looking after the family in toughest times in life and @anushkasharma for fighting against the odds regularly and standing up for righteousness and changing the norms ❤#happywomenday"
