Another cricket-Bollywood romantic liaison goes kaput. The Sarah Jane Virat Kohli love story has finally fizzled out. The cricketer and the TV anchor-turned actress met at a party a few months back and fell head over heels for each other. With equal speed, the two seems to have grown out of each other.
Despite their hectic schedule, the two made it a point to go out on cozy dinners now and then. Virat had even invited Sarah to cheer him at the World Cup final at Wankhede Stadium on April 1. Though Sarah couldn’t make it due to the promotional campaign for her film Game at the time, she made it a point to meet up with the young cricketer later.
The torrid affair came to an end just before Virat flew out to the West Indies for an ongoing tour. A source close to Virat and Sarah revealed, “Well, you can say that it sort of fizzled out. They tried to cement their relationship, but in their heart of hearts, they weren’t serious about it. So people close to them knew that it wouldn’t last.”
The split did not ome as a surprise to the ones involved either. “Sarah is perfectly fine. So is Virat. There is nothing surprising about this split. Haven’t most cricketer-actress romances come to zilch in the past as well?”
However, a friend of Virat defended him and said, “Virat doesn’t even know what Sarah looks like. So where is the question of them not being together?” Sarah and Virat remained unavailable for comment.
