While Virat lives in Raheja Towers in Worli, the Iyer family lives in Adarsh Nagar, which is half a kilometre away. Telling us that she considers Virat as she does her own son Shreyas, Rohini expressed pleasure to be serving him south Indian dishes during the lockdown given that Virat’s mother Saroj lives in Delhi.

Keeping with the Indian tradition of never returning a dish empty, Virat sent Shreya’s family some food too. “He sent us mushroom biryani with pomegranate raita, which was awesome and all of us enjoyed it,” Rohini adds.
