Actress Anushka Sharma and Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli have been making headlines with their love-struck photos ever since they became ‘Virushka’. We’re all aware that the duo dated each other before they eventually tied the knot in the presence of family and friends. But the two had been tight-lipped about their romance and their secret wedding. Well not anymore!
Well, beau Virat Kohli Kohli shares the saga of how they met in a recent interview.
Virat said that when he came to know that he was shooting with Anushka Sharma, he was all nervous and jittery. He first met Anushka Sharma on the sets of a TV commercial and here’s what really happened:
“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 the set and was being all nervous and jittery.”
“I thought I was being funny and I said something which wasn’t probably the right thing to say. When she walked in with heels and was looking taller than me, I was like ‘didn’t you get a higher pair of heels than these?’. 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 because she is on sets all the time.”
Virat revealed that coming from a middle-class family and having their own shares of ups and downs helped them bond. He further added that making it big in the industry without any Godfather helped them understand and connect with each other well.
Speaking about asking her out for the first time, he said:
“It was pretty traditional. We would go out for meals regularly and spend time with each other. Eventually, you didn’t really have to ask out because both of us knew we liked spending time with each other.”
“I don’t even remember when we thought ‘okay this is the time when the transition is happening’, it was so organic and natural. Things just kept getting stronger and stronger. We knew that we just wanted to be with each other.”
Kohli further said that marrying in India with a huge number of guests was too much to handle for them. Hence, they decided to marry in Tuscany with just 42 guests.
