Anushka Sharma, who was on Indian Idol on Tuesday to promote her upcoming production, Phillauri, not only danced on the singing reality show but also obliged a fan who, in all earnestness, confided that she’s a bigger fan of the statuesque actress-filmmaker’s beau, Virat Kohli. After performing on “Girls Like to Swing”, which was picturised on Anushka and Priyanka Chopra in Dil Dhadakne Do, contestant Malvika Sundar proceeded to profess her love for the cricketer, and asked Anushka to relay the message to him.

A source from the set revealed, “After receiving comments from the judges, Malvika told Anushka that she doesn’t know if she will ever get an opportunity to say what’s on her mind, adding that she is a big fan of Anushka but an even bigger fan of cricket and loves Virat a lot.”

The 28-year-old actress, who has been steadfast in her decision to not make any aspect of her relationship public, broke convention and smiled, promising Malvika to pass on the love note.
