Boasting 25 million-plus Twitter followers, Virat Kohli, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma’s husband, is not merely a talented Indian cricket captain but is also one of the most famous athletes globally.

One of the most critical factors contributing to his 83rd spot is the A+ contracts with the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI). That contract ensures Virat's annual retainer of USD 1 million.

Additionally, Virat collected another USD 2.65 million (₹17 crore) from his cricket club Royal Challengers Bangalore in Indian Premier League.

However, the most significant source of Virat’s earnings comes from his various brand endorsements. Merely last year, he raked in a massive $20 million (approximately ₹139 crore) from advertisements for 19 well-known brands including Puma, Audi, Uber, Pepsi, New Era, Oakley, and Tissot among others, according to Forbes.

Undoubtedly, such a whopping 2018 income of ₹160 crore guarantees a prosperous life for Virat and Anushka. And in this article, we will bring you more revelations about the spending trend in Virat’s life.

Classy car collection

Virat Kohli has never shied away from showing his special love for Audi India, his endorsement deal since 2015. The famous brand even presented him with a Q7 automobile on its 10th anniversary in 2017.

In spite of numerous perquisites from Audi, Virat still possesses a variety of autos in his garage including Lamborghini, BMW X6, and Range Rover among others.

Luxurious apartments

After Virat and Anushka's lavish wedding in Tuscany, Italy, the couple reportedly moved into their dream house in Worli, an Arabian-sea-facing flat located in the most luxurious of the three towers of Omkar 1973 Towers.

Last year, Virat even took to Instagram to share a pic showing the stunning sea view from their luxurious apartment. Captioning the picture, he wrote, “Where else would you wanna be when you have such a stunning view from home!” The photo immediately went viral and received a massive number of likes on social media.
