Kohli went on to say that he remembers that where he came from and is always connected to his roots. He said,

I am a typical Delhi boy at heart. Wherever I might be in life, I always remember where I come from and what I have gone through to be where I am. That never goes away from me.

He added,

No expectations, no milestones… there is a simple mindset. I just go there and do my duty. I don’t believe in tags and comparisons. For me the joy of life is just watching that ball and hitting it from the middle of the bat.

Apart from Kohli, former Indian captain Kapil Dev and Indian head coach Ravi Shastri was awarded for ‘Special Achievement’. Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar was also awarded in the same category.
