When Anushka met Kohli for the first time; actress reveals her first interaction and their journey
Anushka Sharma is an Indian actress famous for being married to Indian skipper Virat Kohli. The two began to date in 2013 and tied the knot in 2017, while their daughter Vamika was born this year. Kohli is currently busy leading RCB in IPL 2021.
When it comes to either Virat Kohli or Anushka Sharma, it is their other half that often strikes one’s mind. The couple, popularly known as Virsuhka, is usually considered the power couple of cricket and Bollywood (Cricketwood).
It all started between them in 2013, as the couple quickly gained tremendous recognition. In 2017, they got hitched in Italy, while four years later, Anushka gave birth to their child, daughter Vamika.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, Anushka is celebrating her 33rd birthday. On this auspicious day, it makes sense to look at the journey of Virushka, especially on how it all started.
Most of the fans know that it had all started in 2013 on the sets of a commercial shoot for a shampoo. While Anushka tried to present herself as arrogant during the ad, she believed Kohli was arrogant too. However, it all changed when they actually started interacting outside the shoot.
“Considering it was a three-day shoot and on the second night, I had called my friends over for dinner to celebrate my new house, I invited him too. That’s where it started. There were other people too, but they didn’t make headlines,” she had once told India Today.
“We started cracking jokes. I was the one who was fooling around all the time. Some of the jokes were really silly, but that’s how I am. I love having a good time and having a laugh. I am really glad that shampoo commercial happened,” she recalled.
Well, that was Anushka’s version of the story. Care to know Kohli’s variant? Here’s how it goes. “The first time I met her, I cracked a joke immediately with her. I was nervous and that is why I cracked the joke, because I didn’t know what to do. Before meeting her, I was standing on set all jittery and nervous. I thought I was being funny. I just said something which wasn’t probably the right thing to say,” he had told Graham Bensinger.
“She is tall as well and she was told that I am not 6 feet or plus and ‘you must not wear massive heels or anything’. She walked in and was looking taller than me. I said, ‘Didn’t you get a higher pair of heels than these?’ She was like, ‘Excuse me?’, I said, ‘I am just joking!’ My joke actually became a weird moment for myself. I behaved like a fool, to be honest,” he added.
Well, it sounds both hilarious and cute at the same time. Nevertheless, that’s how a love story gets underway in unique fashion and circumstances. Eight years later, as we look at them, we are glad that they met and it happened. In the same light, we wish them all the best for their future and a happy 33rd birthday to Anushka.
