Virat Kohli revealed his favorite holiday destination. The Indian skipper was clear with his privacy. He wants to visit a place where no one recognizes him. 

Celebrities don't usually get to enjoy their privacy. Talking about his holiday, Virat said, “Somewhere in Europe would be my ideal holiday spot,” Kohli said at a recent event. “But if I am playing cricket and I need some downtime, then I think Australia is a great place. If I want to go on a holiday where no one recognizes us, then somewhere in Europe or one of the Arctic countries where there is so much snow. I have been there, it is fantastic. No one knows you there and you can walk on the streets unnoticed.” 

Virat is a fan of tennis legend Roger Federer. He has always admired him and the cricketer follows him as well. “When he plays, it’s beautiful. He has a family now, priorities set, he takes time out of the game without worrying about opinions and criticism of people and then he comes in and wins Grand Slams. At 36, he is defying logic and that is something that I love,” Kohli said.

Talking about the recent books he read, Virat said it's of another tennis star, Rafael Nadal. “The last book I read was Rafael Nadal’s autobiography [Rafa: My Story], which was cool. Before that, I read Autobiography of a Yogi by Paramahansa Yogananda, which was a real eye-opener. So, these two have to be my recent favorites,” he said  

Virat moved to Mumbai after his wedding. He had to leave his dog Bruno behind in Gurugram. “I haven’t seen him in a few days,” Kohli said when asked about his pet. “I don’t have any dogs at home in Mumbai at the moment. We both [Anushka and Kohli] love dogs, but we don’t have any.”
