Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma married in 2017, but their love story began in 2013 when they met during an ad shoot. So Virat Kohli reveals his love story with Anushka Sharma for the first time.
“The first time I met her, I cracked a joke immediately. I was very nervous, and that’s why I cracked a joke because I didn’t know what to do. I was standing on sets and was being all nervous and jittery,” Virat said.
“I thought I was being funny (when I cracked that joke), and I said something which wasn’t probably the right thing to say. She is tall, and she was wearing heels (makes a gesture which isn’t too much) and she was being told that I am not that tall, I am not 6 feet plus or something… she walked in with heels and was looking taller than me, and I was like didn’t you get a higher pair of heels,” Kohli said.
“Then she was like ‘excuse me’, and then I was like ‘no, I am just joking’. My joke became such a weird moment for myself. I was such a fool, to be honest. She was so confident, she is on sets regularly,” he further added
Explaining how their relationship developed, Kohli said, “She is also from a similar background as me. We come from middle-class families, made it in their respective careers, worked hard, and got to a certain stage. In hindsight, when we look into our lives, they were going at the same pace but in totally different worlds.”
“The timelines of my debut is 2008; the timeline of her starting her first film, shooting for it was 2008 August. We met in 2013, and our lives have been so similar in totally different worlds, and then we got along so well. We were talking real things, we were talking things that a lot of people don’t connect with, and only if you have seen that life will you understand what we are talking about. So the connect was there immediately,” he concluded.
