Fans react to Virat Kohli’s mobile wallpaper

Sharing Kohli's picture on Twitter, a fan wrote, “Baba Neem Karoli really means a lot to Virat Kohli. He has used his picture as wallpaper.” Another user said, “Virat Kohli has a wallpaper of Neem Karoli Baba on his phone… Jai Maharaj Ji.”

A third user commented, “Virat Kohli has Baba Neem Karoli wallpaper saved on his phone. He is truly a devotee.”

Who is Neem Karoli Baba?

Kohli and Anushka are devoted followers of Neem Karoli Baba, who passed away in 1973. The couple was often seen visiting his ashrams in different cities.

Baba Neem Karoli was born Lakshman Narayan Sharma in 1900 and left home soon after his marriage at the age of 11 to pursue a life free from worldly possessions. A devout follower of the Hindu deity Hanuman, he became known as Maharaj-ji.

After travelling around India as a saint, he settled in the village of Neeb Karori, often misspelled as Neem Karoli. Thus he became known as Neem Karoli Baba. At his father's request, he eventually returned to family life, having two sons and a daughter while continuing his spiritual practices.

Neem Karoli Baba's teachings and spiritual lessons fascinated the locals and eventually gained popularity in the West. In the 1960s and 1970s, many Americans visited him to learn his wisdom, especially his teachings on Bhakti Yoga.

About Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli

The duo recently welcomed their second child, a son named Akaay, in London. Since then, fans have been dying to know more about the newborn. Virat and Anushka have repeatedly stressed that they want to keep their children Vamika and Akaay out of the public eye.

Recently, during an RCB interview with Mr Nags, Kohli was asked various questions including about their children Anushka Sharma, Vamika and Akaay. Talking about his newborn, the RCB player mentioned that the baby is fine, healthy and everything is fine.

Virat shared about Vamika's situation and mentioned that she had started picking up a bat and was keen to swing it, before concluding that it was ultimately her decision.

Anushka Sharma has retired from the film industry since her last appearance in 'Zero', where she starred alongside Shah Rukh Khan and Katrina Kaif.

She is currently preparing for her upcoming release 'Chakda' Xpress', a biopic on the life of cricketer Jhulan Goswami.
