'It's out in the open'
"It is out in the open (jo hai sabke saamne hai abhi). We are not hiding anything, we are not trying to hide anything. I don't want to hide anything.
But if you get repeatedly asked on the same thing and if it is made a matter of debate then both the individuals don't feel it is right," said Kohli at the launch of his fashion line yesterday.
Kohli said it was already obvious that he and Anushka were in a relationship and people should not be curious about them anymore.

"If you are seen together somewhere and still people ask 'is it confirmed?', then it is a matter of common sense. If you know then why ask the same question, that is our basic logic behind it. It is not something wrong apparently for people that we are doing.
"We will not personally like to speak about it because it is something very personal for us and that should be respected by the media and everyone else as well," added Kohli.
'Boxer Sarita was right'
The 26-year old stand-in-skipper also batted for boxer Sarita Devi and felt that her decision to not accept the bronze medal at the Incheon Asian Games wasn't against the rule. "I think a sportsman needs utmost support from his sporting association or sporting firm. I don't think her decision was against the rules."
