They have reportedly been seeing each other for quite a while now, but both managed to keep their relationship under wraps. Now, it seems, India's star batsman Virat Kohli and Bollywood actress Anuskha Sharma have finally decided to come out in the open and make their affair public.

When Kohli was asked for his views on Anushka recent comments that everything about their relationship is visible, he replied: "Jo hai sabke saamne hai (Whatever is there, it is in front of everyone). We are not hiding anything, we are not trying to hide anything; I don't want to hide anything.

"But if you keep asking about the same thing again and again, and it becomes a matter of debate, then it does not feel right for both the individuals concerned."

Kohli, who launched his fashion brand WROGN in Mumbai on Thursday, said they have been going out recently and things are quite obvious between them.

"Even if you are seen together and you are asked to confirm [the relationship] I think it is a commonsense thing. Obviously, if you know then why ask the same question? There is basic logic behind it. It is not something that is wrong apparently what we are doing. There is nothing to hide. We would not like to personally speak about it because it is something very personal for us and that should be respected by the media and everyone else as well," he stressed.

Asked if he would ever make a foray into Bollywood, he declared: "You will never see me in movies; never!"

Giving more details about his latest venture, the 26-year-old said his youth fashion label WROGN is inspired by his own life in many ways.

"We were thinking of names. One thing people associate with me in first look or first instance is being wrong. They picture me as someone who is wrong and eventually becomes right after a certain point of time.

"That was the whole plan. Then we decided to spell 'Wrong' in a wrong way. The basic idea is that whatever you see as right is right for yourself.

"Nothing in this world is right or wrong. If you feel strongly something is right and you go after it, you get it. So that is what my life has been till now and I got inspired by that."

On his unique fashion style, the right-hander said he is inspired by American singer and actor Justin Timberlake.

"I used to inspired by the way Justin Timberlake dresses. He is very unconventional. You will see him wearing sneakers on suits. You are supposed to wear formal shoes on stage, but he will come wearing white sneakers on proper dapper suit. I think that is kind of cool; that sort of inspired me in my fashion line."

Kohli also revealed that in the style stakes he rates Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo as his favourite, ahead of David Beckham.

"Both, I believe, stick to what feels right for them, and that is why they have been able to achieve in life what they have achieved. That is something that reflects in whatever they do."
