Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma share success secrets on Unacademy Live Class
Unacademy, India’s largest learning platform, brought the power couple Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma on board, to host an inspiring Live Class for its learners, as a part of the second edition of ‘Legends on Unacademy’.
During the hour-long session, the ace cricketer and the celebrated actor cum producer spoke about their journey, at length. While the duo revealed, “We have never done this before”, their class was a treat for the 50,000 Unacademy Learners who watched it live. Elaborating on their experiences, they highlighted the importance of never giving up on your dreams.
The session began with the couple talking at length about the situation at hand, highlighting the importance of resilience and compassion. Sharing their success mantras, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma went on to talk about their beginnings and the power of grit. Emphasising on the need to do something without worrying about irrelevant factors, Virat Kohli recollected a saying, “Comparison is the thief of joy”. Anushka Sharma, in agreement, went on to recollect several incidents from her life where she just kept at it without the fear of failure.
From experiences to life lessons, the duo threw light on the challenges they faced while working hard to reach where they are today. Virat reminisced about how he “howled” till the wee hours of the morning, after being rejected in state selections. Highlighting how he cracked it after tasting failure, Kohli said, “When there is passion and commitment, that motivation comes back to you!”
Speaking about the value of focus, hard work, self belief and teamwork, the duo affirmed that “Even when things are tough you have to swallow your ego and keep being there in adversity, keep fighting your way out.”
The inspiring session concluded with some live Q&As from
Unacademy learners. From asking Anushka about fitness and diet tips to asking Virat about his early days, the questions saw honest and heartfelt answers from this inspiring duo.
On the Live Class,
Karan Shroff, Vice President, Marketing, Unacademy said, “The COVID-19 pandemic has forced everyone to stay indoors, be it renowned personalities or our learners. The idea behind this initiative was to enable our learners to get motivation from the legends themselves for them to stay reassured and focused on their goals. The session by Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma saw a fabulous response from our learners and we will continue to work hard to provide them with the best learning experience on Unacademy.”
Earlier in March, Unacademy announced the commencement of the ‘
Legends on Unacademy’ program with the idea of bringing legends from different walks of life to elaborate on their learnings and impart life lessons, through Live Classes. The first edition included Live Classes from legendary cricketers such as Brian Lara, Brett Lee and Jonty Rhodes, through the association with Unacademy Road Safety World Series. The second edition has brought together dignitaries like Shashi Tharoor and Kiran Bedi, apart from the celebrated duo Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma.
