A Maharashtra School Had A Question About Virat Kohli's Girlfriend In An Exam

Nothing out of syllabus as such.

Fans of Bollywood will be aware of Indian batsman Virat Kohli's relationship with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.

They will also know how the two met -- on the sets of a shampoo brand they jointly endorse.

This, evidently, was thought of as crucial academic information by a school in Bhiwandi, a suburb in central Mumbai that falls in the Thane district.

No, this isn't a joke. Marks depended upon this answer.

Chacha Nehru High School in Bhiwandi asked their students who Virat Kohli's girlfriend was and to make the seemingly tough UPSC-level question simpler, provided three alternatives: Anushka, Priyanka, Deepika.

Here, have a look.

All we can say is: thank God students were spared questions on Ranbir Kapoor's love life.
