Kohli, who is reportedly dating  Anushka Sharma, was given choices, but, yes, you got it correct, he finally selected the Bollywood actress.

Interestingly, Swayamvar is the ancient Indian practice where a girl chooses her husband from among a list of suitors. In this case, though, Shah Rukh successfully tricked Kohli into getting him to reveal his relationship with Anushka and made him wear a huge picture of hers on his neck.
