Perfectionist Aamir Khan, had earlier appeared on a chat show with Virat Kohli, was all praises for the India captain for supporting the young sportsmen in the country. Aamir said, "I think what Virat is doing and his entire effort to support to young sportsmen across the country is a wonderful idea."
Actor Sidharth Malhotra said plenty of help needs to be done when it comes to sports. "Today, it's a great thing that we are honouring all effort to support to young sportsmen across the country is a wonderful idea sports personalities for their contribution to the country. I have just come here to support them. While growing up, I used to play rugby, football and basketball so, I think a lot has to be done when it comes to sports. Today's event makes it more important because they are supporting other sports apart from cricket. It's a great initiative."
Tennis star Sania Mirza appreciated Kohli's efforts. "Virat is doing an amazing job. We all know, the amazing batsman he is and the amazing captain we have. But it's really nice, as an athlete what he is trying to bring in sports and trying to give exposure to every other sport in our country."
