Mumbai, Nov 12: The first edition of Indian Sports Honours was held Saturday evening at Grand Hyatt, in Mumbai and the grand event saw Bollywood stars Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Anushka Sharma, Sidharth Malhotra, Malaika Arora, Riteish Deshmukh, among others, in attendance.
Virat Kohli and his girlfriend Anushka Sharma stole the show before Indian Sports Honours began in Mumbai on Saturday. The two walked hand-in-hand and got clicked before entering the event.
The gala event was studded with personalities both from the sports industry and from Bollywood along with a few from the business section.

Actor Sidharth Malhotra said that a lot needs to be done when it comes to sports. “Today, it’s a great thing that we are honouring all sport personalities for their contribution to the country.
“I have just come here to support them. While growing up, I used to play rugby, football and basketball so, I think a lot has to be done when it comes to sports. Today’s event makes it more important because they are supporting other sports apart from cricket. It’s a great initiative,” he added.
Tennis star Sania Mirza admired Kohli’s efforts. “Virat is doing an amazing job. We all know, the amazing batsman he is and the amazing captain we have. But it’s really nice, as an athlete what he is trying to bring in sports and trying to give exposure to every other sport in our country.”
Farah, a close friend of Mirza, was also excited for the awards.

“I feel a film should be made on Sania Mirza’s life. She has a great story. I don’t know if I can make it because I am not sporty, but if possible I would love to because she is one of my best friends. As of now, I don’t have such plans,” said the “Happy New Year” director.
