“While we're all indoors, it's extremely important to do stuff that makes you feel good. Staying well groomed is one of the things that keeps me in the zone. So I thought of giving myself this new look. (Smiling face with smiling eyes emoji) I want all of you to take the #TrimAtHome challenge & post your new look! (Smiling face with sunglasses emoji) (sic),” Kohli wrote on his Twitter page with a video of him trimming his beard.

He called the new look as “fresh” and said he liked it. He asked fans to send in their trimmed looks and said he will respond to them.

Earlier, Anushka had given Kohli a haircut with kitchen scissors. She had posted a video on her Instagram page. In the video, Kohli said, “This is what quarantine does to you.
