Virat Kohli & Anushka Sharma  hogged the limelight at the Indian Sports Awards

Internet Desk: India captain Virat Kohli and his girlfriend Anushka Sharma hogged the limelight tonight at the start of the Indian Sports Awards in Mumbai. It was a photographer’s delight as the couple walked hand-in-hand on the red carpet. The Indian captain looked dashing in a navy-blue suit while Anushka complimented him well in a red pantsuit.

Among the other noted celebrities present were Bollywood stars Amir Khan and Akhshay Kumar. The Indian Sports Honours is an initiative by Sanjeev Goenka and Virat Kohli Foundation who joined hands to honour Indian sportspersons for their outstanding achievements.

“India has made rapid strides as a sporting nation. The day of being a one-sport country are behind us. The time is right to introduce an institution that will recognise our top sporting achievers and put the spotlight on those, who are expected to do the country proud in years to come,” Kohli said during the launch of the honours.

“What makes this Sporting Honours unique is the direct involvement of the premier stakeholders of Indian sports — the sports-persons themselves, legends who have excelled at the highest level, the fans and the sports media. Apart from the recipients who will be shortlisted, there will be a ‘popular choice’ award as well, which will be voted directly by the fans,” said Goenka.

The best part of the evening was Virat announcing long term support for 7 young athletes from different sports.
