Clockwise from left: Kohli and Sharma are on a vacation for his birthday; Tendulkar and Raina were among the several sports stars who took to social media to wish the Indian skipper.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli is spending his birthday up in the mountains with actress-wife Anushka Sharma. The couple who often make time from their busy schedules to travel together, are once again off trekking.

Sharma took to Instagram to share pictures from their vacation, where not only did they feed a baby calf but were also invited to tea by the locals - who the actress emphasised had no idea about their stardom and were simply being kind.

The couple spent the day prior to Kohli's 31st birthday on a 8.5 km trek.

Sharing a picture with the family, one of herself feeding the 4-month-old calf, and several others smiling ones with hubby Kohli, Sharma wrote, "Today , during our 8.5 km uphill trek we stopped by a small village on a mountain to pet and feed a baby calf who was born just 4 months ago. While we did that the owner of the house asked us if we were tired and wanted to have a cup of tea? So we went in to the home of this beautiful and warm family who had absolutely no idea who we were and yet they treated us with such warmth and love. We spent some time with them chatting and drinking tea and the whole time they just know us as two tired trekkers!"

She went on to add how much this gesture mattered to both of them.

"Whoever knows Virat and me very closely, know that both of us live for such moments of genuine, simple & pure human connection. It fills us with such joy and peace knowing that they just wanted to be kind to two random foreigners (plus our guide) without seeking anything in return. If this is not the true meaning of life then i don't know what is. A memory we will cherish forever."

While a lot of brands endorses the cricketer, Kohli and one of his long-time association with a brand fell apart.
