India’s vice-captain Virat Kohli was recently voted as the most desirable man in an online poll that was carried by iTimes. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper feels that his straight forward nature makes him the country’s most desirable man, beating MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina in the poll.

“May be because I am straight forward and don’t manipulate things and don’t hide the truth,” Kohli was quoted as saying by Bombay Times.

For Kohli, undoubtedly girlfriend Anushka Sharma is the most desirable woman. “For me, my girlfriend Anushka Sharma is the most desirable woman in the world. She is a lovely and simple person and she is as honest as well just like I am. And that is what I love about her the most. That is my biggest attraction towards her.”

On being asked to rate the qualities that makes him the most desirable, Kohli replied, “1) Love for my mother 2) Respecting my relationship with Anushka 3) Rebellious nature 4) Boy next door image 5) Sexy stubble.”

Speaking about his love for his mother, Kohli said, “I lost my father in 2006 when I had just started playing first class cricket, but was not a part of the Indian cricket team. I have an elder brother and sister and my mother while she is conventional, she is mentally the strongest woman I have seen. After my father, she has held the family together and is like a rock of the family. I have seen her seeing and handling tough times with great composure and that is why I love and respect her so much.”
